Dear Parents,

We’ve had a great week.  We wrapped up our unit on Native Americans and will be starting our fossil unit Monday.  Your child will need to know the steps to fossil formation.  They will get notes for their journal on Monday, but this weekend they can watch the fossil video on www.brainpopjr.com .

I am so proud of the class for their work on Education Galaxy.  We are moving up through the ranks in record time.  Thanks for encouraging your child’s learning.

Dear Parents,

I just want to remind you that next week is conference week, so we have early release and a different schedule.  Our lunch will be from 10:55-11:25, and our specials time will be from 10:10- 10:40.  Because the weather is changing, please make sure your child is dressed to have recess outside.  I find it best to dress them in layers!  I’m attaching some Cobb resources for you to save to your computer, so your kids can use the links.

We had our AR celebration today!  Our AR King is Chase Sutherland and our AR Queen is Sydney Park!  I’m so proud of their effort to get the most points!  Enjoy the wonderful weather this weekend!
