A NOTE FROM THE TEACHER
The Olympics have ended, so you may wonder why we still have an Olympics background on
our website. The reason is..... March is Reading Month, and we will be participating in the
Reading Olympics as a class. There are many fun events planned for this year's Reading
Month. I am one of the teachers on the committee, and believe me, there's LOTS to look
forward in the coming weeks. Have a SUPER DUPER week everyone!!
The 60-minute Moby Max homework will be required for the week of March 3, and the
Feb/Mar contest has begun. Currently, the contests are not displayed on the site. I have
contacted Moby Max, and they are in the process of making some changes to the contests.
They will be back up soon, and students are still accumulating points during this down time.
FIELD TRIP: MARCH 18
Please see your child's folder for the permission slip and detailed note regarding our field
trip to the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History on Tuesday, March 18th.
MARCH IS READING MONTH
Students should look forward to some special events planned for the month of March to
celebrate reading month. Such as...
Students will keep track of how many minutes they read at home. They will turn this in every
Friday in the month of March. At the end of the month the winning class with the most
amount of minutes will win GOLD medals for every student! Second place class will win
silver… and third place will win bronze medals.
Awards Ceremony Assembly- Friday, March 28th @ 2:00-3:00
Reading Activity Calendar:
Students will be given a month long reading activity calendar. They are activities students can
do at home or at school. When they complete that day's activity, they can put an X over it.
Students don't have to do EVERY activity, but are encouraged to participate. Participating
students will receive a prize for participating.
IN MATH THIS WEEK
We will finish Unit 7 this week, which focuses on fractions. The unit test will be on Friday.
Any nut-free candy donations for our treasure basket would be much appreciated!!
