Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
Happy Friday to all of you! It looks like the month of May around here will start the same way April did. We are getting down to the home stretch of the school year, 5 weeks left. These five weeks are going to be busy.
Next week is the school’s spring concert on Thursday. We will be shadowing the middle school on Friday, May 17th. This will be an all day event where the students get to see what it is like at Fox River. The Fox River play group is going to put on a concert for us on May 21st. The fifth and sixth grades will be going to see this. We also have our field trip to the Milwaukee Public Museum on the 28th too. Finally, on the 31st is the school’s carnival for the students. Hold on to your seat, it is going to be wild.
MAPs testing started this week. This is the students’ last chance to show their growth they made this year in reading, language arts, and math. This week we did our reading test. Next week (Monday) will be math for the students, and then the following week will be language arts. At the end of the testing I will send a results sheet home for you to see their progress.
We will be having our final auction of the year on the last day of school. If you have anything that you would like to donate to the auction we would be more than happy to receive it. From now until then you can send in the donations to school.
Our next Early Release day will be Friday, May 24th. Then we will be off on Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day.
Please check the pictures section of the website for some nice pictures of the spirit in the class.
That is all for this week. Thanks for reading Our Class Newsletter. Please email me with any questions or concerns you might have.
