Yearbook Make-up photos:

The photographer will be here on Tuesday and Wednesday, January 28th and 29th to take make-up photos for any new students, students who joined us after the fall photos, or anyone else who was absent during yearbook photos.   Please send your child in his or her formal uniform on Tuesday or Wednesday.  He/she is welcome to change into their regular school clothes after they get their photo made.

Class News:

Literacy – Students should by now be experts on Energy as they have been reading a plethora of non-fiction articles about forms and sources of energy, as well as energy innovations.  Students are using their reading skills to identify main idea and supporting details and take notes in their own words.  This research is then turned into an Informational Article in writing.  We are working hard to have these ready before our big Expo Day!

Math – Students are close to wrapping up our unit on multiplication and division and should be taking/reporting back on their End of Unit test within the next week or so.  That will take us into Unit Four, a geometry unit on Angle Measure and Plane Figures.  A unit overview is available here.

UOI – We continue our investigation into how Energy is used and transformed.  We look at sustainable and unsustainable sources of energy, as well as how energy can be transformed for our uses.  You will find out all about it at our EXPO on Friday, February 14th.

In other news, winter just has not cooperated with us this year.  Due to lack of snow and soggy fields, it has been decided to cancel our winter sports day.
