September 15 - 19

Dear Parents,

     This week our Language Arts theme is “Pets”. We will be discussing and writing about pets that we have, and pets that we wish to have one day. We will also finish up our science unit on apples.
     We will also continue our science unit on apples this week. We will learn about the life cycle of an apple, the seasons of an apple tree, and we will be graphing our favorite apple after tasting several different kinds. We will also estimate circumference, weight, and number of seeds an apple has, then we will check to see how close our estimation was.
     September 18th is fall/yearbook picture day. Order forms will be sent home soon, and orders MUST be received by picture day if you are ordering school pictures. Late orders will not be taken. Students must follow school dress code. Remember that everyone will be taking pictures even if you choose not to order. These pictures will go in the Lee Road yearbook.
     Please assist your child with his/her homework, and read together for at least 10 minutes each night. Thanks!
