We have started NWEA testing this week. Over the past two days, students took their math test. Next week, students will take the reading test. You can help your child be prepared for the test by reminding them to get a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast in the morning!

Dates to remember:
Friday, December 17- Half day. 11:45 dismissal

Also, we are collecting hats, gloves, and scarves to donate to families in need. If you have any to donate, please send them in by Friday.

One last thing- We are in need of Kleenex! If you could donate some to our classroom, it would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great week! 🙂

Week of October 21

Happy Tuesday!
Students have spelling words written in their planners. I will also be posting them here.

Our spelling words this week are:
go, napkin, we, hi, dentist, no, problem, she, open, silent

Spelling tests this year will involve students dictating sentences that use their spelling words. This will help students see the word used in context. I will only be grading the actual spelling word. The rest of the sentence is practice.

*Reminder: Social Studies Night is tomorrow! I hope everyone can make it for a fun-filled evening of social studies activities!

Have a great week!
