As you know, some of the students in the class entered a writing competition the week before Spring Break. In all, I had about 18 entries to send in and one of them, Sabrina Ye's, was chosen as a finalist! We are so excited for her! Now is the hard part, she needs votes. Her entry is titled, The World Must End. The deadline to vote is May 3rd. Every voter has 12 votes, one per category in each of the three grade levels. I voted and it looks like you can only vote once. You will need to sign up to vote, but if you could go and vote for Sabrina, that would be awesome!! Also, pass the good news along to anyone you know that might be able to help her out! You can see all of the finalists and cast your vote at ReadingLabs.shycast.com
Coming up on Thursday of this week is our field trip to Morefield Mines! I am excited about this trip as it should be really fun. Keep an eye on the weather though, and dress appropriately. As of now, it's looking like it might be a dreary day. But, it's still three days away and I'm hopeful that it will change.
This afternoon, you will be getting your child's report card for the last nine weeks. Please sign and return it as soon as possible. New grade reports for the current nine weeks will be coming home on Friday.
