Please support the PTN's "Coin-a-Day" Challenge to support their upcoming fundraiser. We will be collecting coins all week.

    Thursday - Quarters

    Friday - Anything goes


    Here's what's happening this week:

    Reading: Students will complete their compare/contrast essays on two extreme weather events. SRI will be administered on Tuesday. Our next unit continues our nonfiction reading skills with "Reading History". We will be learning about the American Revolution. 

    Writing: We will continue our literary essay unit. During this unit, students are reading various short stories. Students will pick one story to write an essay in which they summarize the story and  provide their own thinking on the story. (including what they think the theme of the story is)  

    Math: This week we will begin Topic 7 - factors and multiples.     



    Some important upcoming events:

    01/17 - PTN meeting in the IMC at 10:00 a.m.

    01/18 - Pajama Day! (for entire school)

    01/18 - PTN CANDY BINGO 6:30 p.m. (this is a correction from prior message that said "movie night")

    02/08 - PTN sponsored Sweetheart Dance 6:30 (see PTN page for more details)

    02/12 - PTN Jersey Mike's Night 4:00 - 8:00 pm



    Our class is scheduled for last lunch, which is 1:00.  I believe that the class would benefit from a mid-morning snack to help the students maintain their focus during lessons.  Since we will be working through snack, I ask that you limit the snack to one healthy food item per day.  (some examples: one piece of fruit, carrot sticks, pretzels, crackers) NO PEANUTS OR PEANUT PRODUCTS OF ANY TYPE DUE TO PEANUT ALLERGIES IN THE ROOM. Thank you for your cooperation!


    I ask that you check our class page and class calendar on a regular basis.  I will update it weekly with information about our class and other important school announcements.
