Well, the time has finally arrived. We begin testing at 8:00, sharp. If your student is not here by 8:00, they will have to take the test later in the afternoon, with someone else. Please do your best not to stress them out. We want them refreshed and ready to “Rock” the test. They are going to be fine. They have all the tools in their toolbox, they just have to put forth the effort that goes along with it. We can only ask that they do their best. Is it going to be hard, YES! Is it going to be tiresome, YES! Can they do it, YES!!!! They have all shown so much growth this year in everything they have done. We just need to see that in “action” on the test. We’ve talked about how it’s not a “pass or fail” kind of thing. They just need to do their best and show the fifth grade teachers what they’re capable of.
With that all being said, I want to thank you for sharing your students with us. We have really enjoyed getting to know them and work with them. I’m sure there have been days that they thought we were the worst things they’ve ever seen, but hopefully they have learned something and will continue to grow as the mature and move through the grade levels. Now is the time to shine! We don’t have much on the docket for this week, because of testing. The students are going to be mentally drained, so I don’t want to stress them out too much. However, I will be handing out the contract for this week and shhhh! It’s the last one of the year! It will be due on 5/10 (which is the same day as the Career Day). We will be taking our test first thing in the morning that day. If your child doesn’t come home with their spelling contract on Monday, please feel free to download it here.
We will be having a more relaxed week this week, but after testing we will still be talking about the Civil War and moving into Reconstruction. Please be sure to check the blog often for updates and information regarding the busiest four weeks of the year. There is a lot to do in the month of May. Also, talent show interest forms were sent home on Thursday, so if you’re interested in participating in the talent show, be sure to send in the forms no later than Wednesday, 5/1/19. The talent show will be held on Friday, 5/17 at 7:00 in the cafeteria.
