Thank you so much with the help you have given as your child has taken the SAGE writing test. It is so helpful to have all of our students present on the day we take the test. I feel that the students did a great job with the first section of the test. Remember, the second portion will be tomorrow (Thursday) at 9:00 AM.
I'm sending a list of Famous Americans home today. Students need to choose a list of ten Americans that they would like to represent in our Great American Hero program in May. We ask that students pick ten because they may not get their first or second choice (or seventh or eighth). We will be picking these Famous Americans next Friday, February 27th. Students will need to fill out a biography information sheet once they have been assigned their American Hero. This bio sheet will need to be turned in by March 9th.
SEPs (Parent Conferences) will be held the first week of March. Look for the SEP form coming home today. If that time does not work, pencil your child's name in an empty slot and return it. Thanks!
Science and Engineering Expo: Also coming home is an information letter explaining this event. The Science Expo will not be judged; however, projects will be graded. Please fill out the registration form and return it to me by Monday, March 2nd. This expo is for 4th and 5th grades. They can choose to do a research paper or a full-blown project.
Students will need to have their project or research paper completed by Friday, March 27th. Parents can come view the projects in the gym, from 2:00-3:00 on this same day.
We are finishing our Matter Unit, and we want to culminate this unit by making "fudge in a bag". This is a costly activity, so we are asking for a donation of $1.00 per student. If you can donate, that would be a great help. We would like to buy the ingredients on Tuesday, February 24th. If any of you would like to come help with this activity on February 27, we'd love to have you. We will start at 1:45.
Spelling Bee is Friday (20th). Megan and McKenna are representing our class. (Go girls!)
My students did an excellent job presenting their book projects today. Now they can think about the Civil War Project, which will be due Friday, February 27th. This gives them a week and a half to complete. They have already been given an assignment sheet, so please ask them about it.
Feel free to call or email me, if you have questions. Thanks!
Sincerely, Jeanne Payne
