What we did this week:
Reading: Story - Klondike Kate & making sourdough!
Math: Drawing & measuring angles
Religion: The 5th Commandment/Respecting Life
Science: Earth Science - Phases of the Moon project
Thanks for sending in some helpful items to help us mix up our sourdough today. It is now sitting in the sun and we'll check on it Tuesday. If it looks good, students will be coming home with their own part of the "starter."
So I can include today's Math quiz and Religion test, the last test packet of the year will be coming home on Tuesday. Please sign and return by Thursday.
We are coming very close to the the final newsletter for this school year. I would like to ask if each parent could reply in email or a note to school by June 5th about comments, thoughts, or suggestions about your child's 5th grade year. Each year that I've been here at St. Joe's I've tried to modify, adjust, or just plain change things that have gone well or not as smoothly as I anticipated. For example, you could tell me about your child's favorite subject and why, a topic we studied that was interesting or one that could be 'jazzed' up, or perhaps a favorite book report project. Thank you for your feedback.
Monday: NO SCHOOL
Tuesday: Last Test Packet - Due Thur

Have a wonderful holiday weekend! Avalyn and I will be at the parade on Monday. Maybe we'll see some of you there! (Mr. Maurer has to work - boo!)
God Bless America!
