The children will be writing a four paragraph essay for their performance assessment IN SCHOOL on Wednesday, May 24th. They DO NOT have to research the Old Testament prophet. That information has already been provided for them. They DO need to research the MODERN DAY prophet that they have chosen. They may write down the information they gather or print it out as they choose and bring it to school on Wednesday to use as a reference as they write their essay. I hope this clarifies what they need to do in order to be prepared to write the essay on Wednesday.

Fund Raiser:  The children may wear their Gym shorts and sneakers with a patriotic themed shirt, or a red/white/or blue shirt IF they bring in a dollar tomorrow.  If they do not bring in a dollar they must wear their regular formal school uniform.
