Weekly Wrap Up

How did it get to be May already? That means we’re getting close to the end of year countdown. Yikes! There will be lots of special events and activities that take place over the next month and a half, but our learning continues. Homework still continues on, and it gets a little harder now for some children to manage their time when they have school events, sporting practices, and various other activities. Even though your child has been doing homework all year, they might need a little extra help from you now to budget their time between homework, events, and just being a kid and playing. 

Monday is our field trip to the Plainville Historical Society. We will leave school around 9:00, and be back at school in time for lunch, so there’s no need to pack a special field trip lunch. 

Testing continues next week on Tuesday and Thursday. Thank you for making sure your child is well rested, and eats a healthy breakfast each day.

Our extra copies box is full, so that means it’s time for the kids to bring home any extra copies of old papers they want. If you see a lot of unfinished papers coming home, don't think it's work your child needs to catch up on, it's just what they picked out to bring home for fun.

Here's what we're learning about next week:
  • Reader’s Workshop: Elements of fairy tales
  • Writer’s Workshop: Adapting fairy tales
  • Spelling: Unit 29 - Words home on Monday, test on Friday
  • Math: Area
Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
