21--Track Meet (Field Day) at CHS track.   This will last most of the day.
22--Last Day of School

Whew!  Can you believe this schedule?   We’ll continue to squeeze in reading, writing, and arithmetic, especially since we have more high stakes testing ahead of us.  We are still in major review mode, and we really appreciate your child being in school every day.  Once this testing is over, our learning takes on a different shape..  A little more relaxed and a little more fun.  Yay!   

Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Little’s students are writing an ABC Book, and Mrs. Payne’s class is working on State Reports.  These reports will be presented on May 12 and 13th.  

The last newsletter will be posted on Wed., May 13.

Your help and support are invaluable to us as teachers.  Thank you for helping us with your child’s education.  We love each one of these 5th grade students!

                        Mrs. Payne, Mrs. Little, and Mrs. Williams

April 30 will be the last day I (Mrs. Payne) will collect Reading Response Journals on a weekly basis. For the next two weeks (or until the 12th of May), students need to hand them in ONLY when they have completed reading a book.
