February 22, 2017 Newsletter
We want to thank those of you who filled out the parent surveys and got those back to us. We really appreciate the feedback.
The Great American Hero Biography forms are now due, and there are some we have not received yet. We need these forms so that we can write the program our students will be performing in May.
Science Expo: Be sure to read and fill out the Science and Engineering Expo registration form that your child will bring home today. S/he will need to sign up for either an experiment, an invention, or a research project that they would like to do for the Science Expo. The registration form will need to be turned in by Monday, March 6th. We will be doing the actual Science Expo on Tuesday, March 28, 2017. The students will present their projects in their own classrooms that morning. You (parents and other interested parties) are invited to come view them from 2:45 to 3:30. This science expo is just for fifth grade students. Students can go home with parents, but they will have to wait until 3:30 to do this. If you need a board for this project, you can purchase one at the office for $5.00, or you can purchase one at Walmart, JoAnn’s, etc., for around the same price.
Worker’s Holiday: We have only two weeks left until the end of third quarter. Be sure to check your child’s missing assignment sheet and see if s/he is missing anything. All missing work will need to be turned in by Monday, March 13th. Students who have all work turned in and 80% or higher will qualify for Worker’s Holiday. We are taking those students swimming in the morning of March 14. We need four parents (willing to get in the water) to chaperone us on this day. Please let us know if you would like to help out with this.
The next progress report will be sent home on Tuesday, March 7th. This will be the final printout for third quarter. Let me know if you have questions.
