Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas spent with family and friends. We will be finishing up the semester this next week and also our AR period. Hopefully your child is coming to school tomorrow ready to take AR tests in hopes of meeting their goal. The semester and AR period both end January 15.
This week our anthology story is Yonder Mountain, a Native American folktale. Our spelling words are all contractions this week. We will learn how to make contractions and even perform “contraction surgery” on Tuesday.
I hope your children got a head start on their biome project. The projects are due January 22 along with a written report. We will spend some time this week doing a little research and will work in groups to share information. However, the majority of the research should be done at home.
In math we will review what we have learned about division before moving on. Our next math test will be on Wednesday, January 15, which means it will not count toward this semester’s grade. Please continue to have your child practice their multiplication facts/family of facts.
Our new Ambassador for the character trait of Self-Discipline will be announced at Wednesday morning’s prayer assembly and we have an All School Mass on Friday.
I am excited about all the fun things we will be learning about next semester and look forward to seeing your children’s bright, happy faces tomorrow!
