Week of November 13th - 17th


Dear Parents & Guardians, 

     Thanksgiving Break is next week!  Students will have the entire week of November 20th - 24th off from school.  When we return we will have a few short weeks left until Christmas break!  This also means we are finishing class assignments and work for the nine weeks. Please be sure that your student is doing his or her best and is doing homework and assignments as given.

     The Tom Turkey Disguise projects are due Tuesday, November 14th.  Everyday it is late, students will loose points on the project. It counts as both a Writing and Science Grade (Camouflage).  The written work needs to show a good effort, and it needs to be legible.

     In December, we will take our first set of Case 21 Assessments.  This will be a benchmark test to get an idea of how each student is progressing for the year. This year we are using the Case 21 test also as a grade in both in ELA and Math. Please let your child know we expect them to do their best.

    The class Christmas party will be Thursday, December 14th. Our time for our party will be 12:45 - 1:15.  Parents and guardians are invited.  Please remember no siblings please. If you have any questions, you may contact  our room parent, Mrs. Hood,  through her Remind account or me.

    Thank you parents for all you do and have a blessed week!


                                                Mrs. Flie
