Class T-Shirts: Students who ordered a class t-shirt received theirs today. This can be worn on Fridays, field trips, and the Tiger Trot next week. I have 3 extras if your child wants to purchase one for $7.

Score Reports: Students received their IOWA score reports today. Let me know if you have any questions.

Explorers: Today, students learned about John Cabot and completed an independent task about him. After learning about Columbus, Cabot, and Balboa, students will be assessed on those three explorers on November 17. Students have also been receiving completion grades on independent tasks every week as we learn about each explorer. Students should be bringing home social studies journals to review and discuss the explorers as we learn about them. After Thanksgiving break, we will learn about the other three explorers and then assess those three.

Science donation: Next week, students have the opportunity to explore fossils with a cookie experiment. If you can donate regular chips ahoy (chocolate chip or m&m) cookies, let me know!

Tiger Trot: Continue to donate to your students and our class! We will be fast as lightning at the Tiger Trot next week!
