We had a great STEM assembly today that showcased a fun combo of the sciences and magic. I was chosen for a demonstration and charged 50,000 volts for one experiment! The kids were nervous (and I even saw some fold their hands to pray for me - how thoughtful :) but everything was a-ok and we had a wonderful time! I'll have updated pictures on the website shortly.
On Wednesday this week, our high donation earners were able to slime a teacher!!! See the pictures below!! This was so much fun and I'm super-glad I didn't get slimed!
Just a reminder that unless something comes up and I tell you otherwise, Test Packets are still coming home every Friday. The due date continues to be returned to school by the following Tuesday. I just want to make sure parents are aware so you are not missing out on seeing any tests/grades in a timely manner.
In addition to test packets, I'm sending home a sample of a Math Facts sheet we do periodically in the classroom. Up until now, these have been for my records to track student progress and NOT included in the math grade for the trimester. Now in the 3rd trimester, they WILL be included. This sample is what your child has completed recently and will give information on potential need for additional practice and if so, which times tables need the more work.
Our field trip is next Friday. An informational letter is coming home Monday to answer FAQ. Please refer to this when preparing your child for school that day.
COGATS testing is this week. Students should arrive at school with 2 sharpened YELLOW pencils. I gave these to the students 3/17 w/ instructions to return them ready to go on Monday 3/20.
Monday: 2 YELLOW sharpened pencils
Tuesday: Sci Ch 8 Less 1-2 Quiz
Wednesday: 2 YELLOW sharpened pencils
SS Ch 11 Test

Have a wonderful weekend!
