News from the Social Studies Department (By Molly):
For social studies we have been doing foldables. We would cut the paper a certain way and make 5 sections. We had to choose 5 different toices about our lesson. On the outside we had to draw a picture and the title for each section. Then on the inside we had to write about the topic for each section. During that we were able to listen to videos about our topics.

Free Choice Area (By Graeme): Recess Department:
Students enjoy playing at recess, but listen to how some of these sixth graders have “upgraded” their recess. Selena, Will U., and Sawyer enjoy playing Hot Potato. But Hot Potato on Swings? Doesn’t that sound fun? Tag… with a football? Played by fantastic Fifth Graders. Tetherball corner- 2nd Grader epicly creams third grader in a fast paced tetherball game.
This has been Graeme reporting from the Recess Department.
Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
Good afternoon. Welcome to November. Can you believe we are only 50+ days left to the end of the year? Yikes!
Next week we will begin our WKCE testing. We test on Thursday and Friday. Please help the students do well three ways; make sure the students go to bed at an appropiate time, eat a good breakfast, and come to school each day ready to work hard. We will test right away in the morning, and then some days after lunch. The following week testing is Monday and Tuesday.
There will be no school November 24th and 25th, and early release on the 23rd at 11:30.
