Class news!

The students have been doing awesome finishing up all of our units and projects. We are half way through our forces and motion science unit. We are also beginning “Me On the Map” social studies unit. We will talk about our home, school, city, state, country, continent, and end with planet! This is the last week of earning pennies and buying from our classroom store. It is cute when they save money and then decide how to spend it. We will stay busy this and next week as we have lots of important things to finish up!

The girls have been having many fights and arguments over jewelry. I have even received emails that jewelry is missing. It started again at breakfast this morning of passing around a necklace only to be worn by best friends. I have decided to end all jewelry wearing for the remainder of the year. It is causing hurt feelings and arguments in the classroom and honestly I can not keep track of whose stuff belongs to whom. Thanks for making sure this is not being worn to school from here out.

If you ordered a yearbook it is coming home in folders today! 🙂

Detroit Zoo directions and parking passes are coming home in today’s folder for those joining us on the field trip. Please make sure to have this yellow parking ticket on Wednesday (otherwise you have to pay $8 to get a new one!)

The Spring sing along concert on Friday at 2 pm will be held just like the holiday sing along was back in December. We will be performing out the back doors and you are welcome to take your child home after. They will have there stuff with them. Please just give me time after the performance to move them to the wall with our stuff then I can dismiss from there.

Reminder send in any remaining school books you may have at your house!

Have a great week!

Detroit Zoo Field Trip Details – Wednesday, June 8th

*Please check in with your teacher that morning at Howe when you drop off your other children in the FRONT parking lot. (We will be standing out there from 8:40-9am) If you do not need to come to Howe then please email your teacher as a way to check in. 

*Then head straight to the zoo. We will meet as a large group right by the end of the parking garage ramp. We can only enter as a whole group so please be prompt with a 9:50 arrival. Parking can take some time so take that into account. They will let us in beginning at 10 am. 

*Please wear a Howe school shirt or your classroom faces t-shirt that day ☺

*You may bring or buy lunch at the zoo.

*We will meet at the playground between 12-12:30 pm for a quick check in. (The playground is on the left side of the zoo on the outside walking loop)

*After check in you are free to roam the zoo and leave whenever you need to. We will NOT be checking you out.

Along with your child’s reading level and suggestions for ways to not have summer slide with academics. Your child also has a eureka math module in there backpack in case you would like to practice that as well.
