Third Week of the New Year

It is time for our dials to hit max and the year will begin to fly by. Even more than it has so far.

Today we went to Colburn Science museum and had an awesome time. The kids learned a little bit more about matter and got to explore the museum focused on weather and rocks. Each child received a family pass in a brown bag with a piece of mica and the lady at the museum said they would be doing an extra special even this Saturday all about the moon.

The assessment window opens tomorrow and we will be jumping right in with one of the MAP assessments. This will take place in the classroom on laptops from 8:15-10:00 tomorrow, Wednesday January 21 and  Wednesday, February 4th. WE will also begin benchmarking students in DIBELS Oral Fluency and TRC passages.

I have finalized grades for the second quarter and report cards will be coming home on January 27.

We will be having a meeting going over some details for Camp Greenville on Tuesday Feb. 3. It will be in the evening and I will get the time to you when I get it. Some of you have already been turning in permission forms and money, which is great. All moneys for Camp Greenville will be due by March 20 and the dates of the actual trip are April 23 and 24.

Thursday, February  5 is an early release day and Friday, February 6 there is no schools for students.

Be on the lookout for another fieldtrip form coming home. We have just begun reading “Little House on the Prairie” and will be attending a play focusing on Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life at Diana Wortham Theatre. This will be Wednesday, Feb. 11 and will cost $6 a child and I am looking for two chaperones to join us. Same cost for chaperones:
