We are sure you were amazed by all the wonderful art created by our students. Thank you, Tina, for all your hard work and for showcasing all our student talent. Thank you also to all the parents who helped set up and take down the Gallery Walk.
As winter break approaches, we slow down a little and check in with our students to measure progress in goals, celebrate our successes, and take note of areas for improvement. Our older kids have already come a long way in their academic and social growth. We’re so proud of them. This week we have our more formal assessments in math and reading as we take the MAP tests today and Wednesday. We also have quite a lot of students ready for end of book math tests.
We will be completing our Central/South America unit over the next couple of weeks. Our students are working hard on creating a display board or book about their country. The research and a lot of the writing is done, so now they can work on being creative as they put it all together. Recitation projects are due the last week of school, December 18th.
Next week is a short one, so we will not be posting a newsletter. We will be taking our annual field trip to EPIC on Wednesday, December 19th. We will ice skate in the morning and swim after lunch. Please be sure to send your child to school in long pants with long socks, and pack a swimsuit and towel. We will eat lunch at EPIC so kids need to bring a sack lunch.
We end this semester with our annual talent show. Please encourage your child to share a talent with the school. Groups may also enter the talent show.
