Thank you to all that have been assisting with classroom materials and operations. Your involvement not only makes my life easier but demonstrates to our students your active role and participation in their education. For those of you that are seeking other ways to help the community, we have two field trips next week that we need chaperones for.
On Monday afternoon of next week we are walking to City Hall to visit the Mayor’s office (and hopefully the Mayor himself and some of his staff). On Thursday morning of next week we’re driving to Jewell Lake to go ice fishing. We need chaperones and drivers for both of these fieldtrips. We will lose out on these opportunities if we do not have the minimum 5 adults to 1 child ratio that the district requires. Please let me know ASAP if you are available.
Before we do our trips next week we have this week to look forward to! Monday we had a guest speaker, Erin Connolly, to share what student council is, as part of our cultural unit on levels of government. This week we’re looking at school governments. As such, on Tuesday we are hosting another guest speaker, ASD School Board member Tam Agosti-Gisler to share her story from student to elected official and what her role is now.
We have finished up our STEM unit on coding and will be merging into our unit on interconnectedness now. This begins with a pre-assessment and look at water.
In math we continue to move through different concepts at different paces. As a reminder, students are always expected to take home any work that they will not finish by the next day’s lesson (as long as materials are not needed). Many students are not taking advantage of this opportunity and are having a harder time as a result.
This week in language we’ll be looking at different tenses of verbs: past, present, and future. We’ll also continue working on our written research piece about a chosen type of government. Ask your child what type they have chosen!
I hope you all have a great week! As always, call/text/email/stop by with any questions, concerns, or causes for celebration!
