I'm writing today with a few updates:

1. French Book Report Update: Right now, I am working on making corrections to everyone's paragraph so that the students may attach their paragraphs to their posters, due this Friday. Next, I will focus on making corrections to everyone's Google Presentation. IF your child is not finished editing his/her Google Presentation by Friday, there will not be a consequence and I will give them the weekend and some time next week to finish editing. Students who are ready will begin presenting next week. The Poster is due this FRIDAY, APRIL 4th!

If you feel that it would be helpful to have access to Book Report instructions in English, feel free to e-mail or call me, and I can send them to you. However, please do not share these instructions with your child. Instructions in English should only be used to assist your child, not to be given to your child to use in place of the French instructions.

2. In order to play Laser Tag with us at PINZ on April 10th for the French Reading Incentive, your child also needs to read 3 more French books (in addition to his/her "Book Report Book"), and complete 3 Finished Book Forms, making a total of 4 French books. The due date for completing the French Reading Incentive is Monday, April 7th.

I will be giving a Quiz on the Spanish Conquistadores this Thursday, April 3rd. I am not giving more notice because it is going to be an "open note" quiz and the students will be able to use an information booklet that we completed in class. Tomorrow (Wednesday) night's homework will be to study the materials that have been handed out in class.

4. Mrs. Perpall asked me to inform parents that the the Parent Information meeting for parents of students entering grade six in the fall is on Wednesday, April 9th at 7:00 PM in the auditorium at Adams Middle School. The day and date did not match on the English weekend homework sheet that was sent home last weekend. There is also a Special Education introductory meeting that same evening at 6:30 pm in the Library that will be 30 minutes.

4. Our next field trip, to Boston's Freedom Trail, will be on June 12th. I'm letting you know a bit early because if you are interested in chaperoning this field trip and you have not submitted a CORI form in the past year, it is advised to begin the process ASAP! You may access this form via the Holliston Public Schools website or try this link:
If you have difficulty locating this form, please let me know and I can send home a hard copy with your child. Please be sure to include a photocopy of your license when you return your form! Thank you!

The Liste 25 Spelling Test will be Friday, April 4th.

6. Scholastic Book Orders are due no later than Friday, April 11th.

7. If you happen to have extra Kleenex at home that you would be willing to donate to the classroom, it is always helpful to have extras on hand! Thank you in advance for anything you might be able to share, and thank you to all who have donated Kleenex and other classroom items this year!!

8. Just a few additional reminders: The French Reading Log that I give out over the weekends for French reading is available here on my website, under the section "Devoirs du Week-end" if your child ever forgets his/her copy at school and needs to print it out at home!

     I continue to offer French spelling games each week in the "Jeux" section of this website that can be helpful for studying for spelling tests. In addition, if your child does not have his/her spelling list, all of the lists are always available in the "Listes d'Orthographe" section of this website.

Feel free to call or e-mail anytime with questions or concerns.

Thank you for your support and cooperation!
