It is time to check the Spring Student Record. You can do this through Zippslip to save yourself the hassle of filling out yet another piece of paper. You can go here to access your account or create one to submit the important document to the school. Thank you for completing this updated form. You can also access Zippslip on the school's webpage.
Thank you for returning the spring pictures if you did not purchase any. If you still have those at home, please look them over and make your selections. They are due on Thursday, 3/26.
Progress folders came home last Friday. If your child has not returned it, they need to bring it in by Wednesday 3/25. An updated grade sheet was included for your convenience.
Family Life is tomorrow. Your child will participate in this unless they have turned in an opt-out form.
There is a math test on adding and subtracting mixed numbers and fractions on Thursday. We have been working on these skills in class and I am pleased with the progress I have seen. On Friday, we will begin our study of geometry. We are planning to learn about all the properties of a quadrilateral. A test on that unit is planned the Thursday before Spring Break.
We are almost finished with our Matter unit! On Friday, the students will take the Matter test. This will cover any notes that they have in their notebooks for SOL 5.4. As a fun culminating activity we will be studying the four ways that scientists know a chemical reaction has taken place by doing some science experiments all next week.
The writing HATs test is over. I am very pleased with your child's results. We will continue our focus on the mechanics of writing for the rest of the nine weeks and then will finish the year out with more creative writing projects.
Our final field trip of the year is planned for Wednesday, April 29. We will be going to Moorefield Mines. I will send home more information about the trip soon.
If you are interested in knowing some of our important dates through the end of the year, please check out the link to my calendar. It is up to date with the activities that I know of at them moment.
