Winter is back! I can’t believe this weather. I sat at my son’s soccer game on Saturday in the rain, snow, and hail! Crazy! I think the warm days are coming! We are in need of tissues for our class if anyone has a box to donate! We have lots of runny noses and allergies with the changing weather! We are also in need of pencils in case you are out shopping.
Dr. Groover wanted us to remind everyone of the Snow School dress code. The Code of Conduct requires the the student clothing is “modest and does not have any distracting influences”. For your child’s safety and comfort, we ask that students wear shoes that are appropriate for running and playing on the playground instead of flip flops. Please also refrain from allowing students to wear shirts with spaghetti straps. We also ask that girls wear shorts under their dresses or skirts. If you have any questions about the dress code, please contact Dr. Groover.
It is almost time for the Snow School Picnic. Every year the classrooms create a basket of goodies and raffle it off at the school picnic. This year, our class theme is going to be “Around the Town”. The basket will be filled with gift cards in any denomination for places around the Dearborn area. For example, we would love gift cards to Dairy Queen, Target, Michael’s, Coney Island, Tropical Smoothie (my favorite!) etc…. Basically anywhere in Dearborn that families can get a treat or shop. Remember….the gift card can be in any amount! I will start collecting them this week and I need all of the gift cards by June 1. Thank you in advance!
This week in…
Language Arts, the students will begin working on plays in class. All of the students will choose a part in the play. The goal is that the students will be performing these plays as a lunch theater in June. The date for this has not been determined, but I will pick it this week so everyone can plan accordingly. We will have a small class picnic after the plays too. More details will follow soon! We are also focusing on parts of speech and author’s message in class. I have ordered the books for the students who participated in the Tower of Books challenge! Hopefully, they will be here by next week! I am working on setting up a class account for a new website like MyOn. I’ll send more info this week once our class is set up and running! This will be great for summer reading!
Math, we will be taking our Unit 8 test on Wed. The study guide will be sent home tomorrow for practice.
In Social Studies, we are learning about public discourse and taking a stand on an issue.
In Science, we will be exploring life cycles. If anyone has any tadpoles to share so the students can observe them, please let me know! Our caterpillars are forming coccoons! It is really exciting to watch.
Looking ahead…Our Snow School Clean Up Parade is Thursday, May 26 at 9:30!
Have a wonderful week!
