This week is Spirit week Monday is crazy hair day, Tuesday is school color day, Wednesday is crazy socks day, Thursday is Jersey day, and Friday is spirit dress down.
We have had a great time so far this year, our writing piece for last week was about an old rusty lock I found, and they had to write it into a story. Some of the story I have received are fantastic and fun to read, once I have permission from some of the writers I will post them to the blog for you to read.
This weeks writing is about point of View and student need to work with their partner to write a fairy tale. Let’s hope that these stories are just as great.
I am pleased to announce that we have elected our class representatives. They are Madilynn for Class Student rep, Ashley for Vice President, and Paige for Class President. Also I have sign all of my student up for MobyMax and they should be practicing 10 of math, and 10 min of reading stories a night, for a total of 50 minutes a week.
We have started another year here at Ascent. I look forward to a eventful year, and seeing the growth of each of our students. We will be starting special next week along with beginning benchmarks. If you haven’t sign up for our class Bloomz please do so at your earliest convenience so we may keep in touch. Students will be able to elect their class representative on Friday, speaks will be given on Thursday. Any student may try out and I look forward to hearing their speak.
This week we will be learning about the feudal system and the end of the Middle ages. to help with this we will be participating in a simulation. I does require a little help from parents. If you could help by checking of their worksheet to help them advance up to a Lord or Lady

This week we did nothing special except we had the second week of clusters and it went pretty well. The category was animated characters and we had some really good drawings. The winners was squirt from Finding Nemo, Pluto, and I cannot remember the other one. We had specials and that was pretty much all we did that week.
This week we had our first clusters of the 3rd cluster unit! I got into competitive drawings and my teacher is Mr.Kravetz. It is really fun but the time went by super fast and we voted on all of our Medieval drawings. The winner was a 5th grader that I do not know the name of, Daniel Richardson from Mr.Kravetz, and Phoenix from Mrs.Myers. Cason, Sophia and Metijce all made the soccer team and have had 4 practices. Their first game is next Monday. We got an announcement that we will be going to the new movie Boss Baby and April 6rd. Last, it was St.Patrick’s Day and I hope you guys do something fun for it. That is all that happened this week.
This week was pretty good because on Monday we had a big assembly that made us miss science and history. We also had great artist so we went into some of our math time. Tuesday and wednesday were the same as a regular week but wednesday we did not have clusters but we will be starting them soon. Thursday was picture day and we also got a free dress down day so that was pretty dope. Last, Friday we got to have Sub Zero come to our school and make a ton of different ice cream and then eat it. Then we got Fun Friday. This week was a really good week. Last, we had our sound projects and they turned out really weird but some were cool. That is all.
The Valentines party was a lot of fun and I could tell that everyone had a lot of fun. It seems like Tyler, Kayden and Anthony got diabetes from all the stuff that was on their cookie. After the cookies, we went to P.E and I am surprised that no one threw up. When we came back from lunch, we watched soul surfer with cool ranch doritos, hot chilli doritos and nacho cheese doritos. The rest of the week was short days so not much happened. We listened to more of the book Wonder and I cannot wait for the movie. The last thing that happened was parent teacher conference. That is all that happened.
