News in Room 43

Our state report rubric and directions went home on Friday in our folders.  In order to select a state, the parent signature page needs to be turned in.  Students began selections today.  Keep in mind that the float is only done at home.  It is our last big project.

State testing will begin April 24th- May 5th.  Please make sure your child comes to school well rested, with a good breakfast and a positive attitude!   We are allowing our kiddos to bring in their own headphones/earbuds to use during testing.  They can be stored in a locked cabinet or brought back and forth.  

Walk Through the Revolution speaking parts will be sent home before Spring Break so the kiddos can begin memorizing.  The assembly is scheduled for April 28th from 9:30 - 12:00. Please feel free to join us, but due to limited space, we are unable to accommodate siblings. Two guests per student please.  We are asking guests to be seated by 9:15 in order to stay on schedule.  Scripts and speaking parts will be found on our 5th grade website, just in case the original is lost.

I am beginning to take donations for our end of the year auction.  I would like to hold an auction so the students can spend some of their classroom currency.  I am looking for gift cards, games, toys, books, art supplies, treats...whatever you think they would like.  Just send in your donation with your student and as always, they will earn more $$.

We are also in need of glue sticks, Clorox wipes and Dixon Ticonderoga pencils.  If anyone is able to donate, their child will be rewarded with classroom currency and I will be super grateful!

Our last Scholastic Order will be sent home soon.  Lots of summer reading options are included in the order forms.  Order forms will be due April 28th.

I will continually be updating our website, so be sure to check back often to stay informed on the happenings in Room 43!
