Free Choice Area (By Emma ): We do our homework or if people have their homework done they can play typing games. We also do an extra recess or a fun day.
Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer and Mrs. Topp): We hope everyone had a relaxing spring break. We all expected the weather to cooperate and greet us with spring, but Mother Nature has a different idea. We did try to take advantage of Thursday’s 60 degree day by taking the students out for an extra recess to reward them for their hard work and respectful behavior.
Please continue to check your child’s grades on Skyward. With less than two months of school, it is important that students are completing assignments. The assignment book is also a helpful tool to see what students are doing in class and checking if there are notes for upcoming events or messages from us.
We have scheduled a field trip to the Discovery Museum on May 23rd. More information will follow, but we wanted to get the date out as soon as possible if parents would like to chaperone.
APTT - Again we would like to know what you thought of the process if you attended and we would like to know what we can do differently to get those who did not attend to come.
