I would just like to say that the students' biographies were excellent! I was impressed with the time, effort, and creativity put into the projects. They have worked hard this year and am so proud of them. I also appreciate the support all of you as parents have given throughout the year. Thank you.
Just a reminder about their field trip Friday, the 26th. They are allowed to bring picnic blankets, soccer balls, frisbees, etc. (no skateboards or rollerskates). We will be walking so they will need to wear comfortable shoes.
Sage testing has begun. The kids have been working hard preparing for their assessments. On the days of their testing they are allowed to chew peppermint gum - studies have shown this can be effective with concentration. Also, I would like to suggest your child is getting plenty of rest and eating an adequate breakfast.
There will usually be a short math homework assignment Monday-Thursday. If time allows and class work is completed, I will give them time to work on their homework assignment.
All assignments will have a due date. Each assignment will be considered missing the day after the due date. There will be a deduction on the score for every day it is late. The assignment will count as a 0 until turned in. On some assignments, the student will be expected to stay in during recesses until it is finished.

We will be having a "snack time". Last year, the students were often complaining of being hungry the last hour or so before lunch - they do have a later lunch (12:35). We will take a five minute break from our studies every day around 10:30 and allow them to have a small snack if they so desire. It was implemented last year, and I have found that it has been a good thing. The kids have had a better attitude with the last stretch of work before they leave for lunch. Please do not send any peanut food items for snack - they can have them at lunch in the cafeteria just not in our class (school policy). Thank you. Debora Myers
