This week is Red Ribbon Week! We celebrate Red Ribbon Week to encourage saying no to drugs. Students may participate by wearing fun clothes on the appropriate days. Here is the schedule for each day:

Monday: Wear a red shirt!

Tuesday: Wear a hat or baseball cap!

Wednesday: Wear your favorite sports team shirt!

Thursday: Wear mismatched or crazy socks!

Friday: $1 Dress Down, dress like a Superhero!

Remember that this Friday is also the Glow Party for 4th and 5th grades. Students may bring some extra money to the event if they wish to purchase any of the following:

  • $5: Light up fidget spinner
  • $2: Light up emoji ring, glow in the dark glasses, glow in the dark headbands, triple glow bracelet, etc.
  • $1: finger lights, glow sticks

*supplies are limited

And finally, here is an update for this week!

Reading: This week we are looking at non-fiction text features (titles, headings, graphs, charts, table of contents, glossary, diagrams, maps, etc.). We will have a test on Friday.

Writing: We are continuing to work on Opinion Writing.

Social Studies: Our study on European Explorers continues! We will have a test on Friday. A study guide has been sent home with students to help them be fully prepared.

Math: In math, we are moving onto factor pairs, as well as prime and composite numbers. Here is an example: The factors for 12 include 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. The number 12 has more than one pair of factors, so it is a composite number. No test this week. Please make sure that students are studying their facts each night (and please sign their practice logs). We will have drills each day and students are responsible for memorizing their facts on their own. Students who progress will receive a new set of flash cards from me to practice at home.

Spelling: Our spelling words this week are more words with the long i sound. Spelling packets were given to students, and they may also practice on my Spelling City page. We will have a test on Friday.

Please remember to turn in your field trip permission slips and payment. Also, if you did not attend conferences and received your child’s report card in an envelope, please make sure to return the signed envelope back to me as soon as possible.

Thank you all and have a wonderful week!
