Husky Run

  Thank you for helping with this important fundraiser!

  Our 4th grade musical will be on June 7 at 6:30 in the evening. We will have a rehearsal on June 6 at 1:30 and June 7 at 9:30 if the evening doesn't work for you. Students will wear pioneer outfits only for the evening Hoedown and June 8 for Pioneer day. If you need ideas for pioneer outfits, please check out our Pioneer Day link on the left. 

 Book Order

  Last book order of the year went home on May 25. This order is due May 31 so I can get everything back in time. If you'd like to order online, go to:

Dorris Ranch

  It's amazing how fast the end of the year is coming. Our Dorris Ranch field trip is on June 11. I can take as many parents as want to come. I have to set up groups though so I need to know if you're coming. I've set up a Bloomz list for signing up. You can also email or send a note. Thank you.

 Oregon Trail

  We've just finished a long research project. Students will be sharing reports next week for a speech grade. Please help your child get ready for this speech. If you're taking a trip, they could practice and read it aloud to you in the car. Thank you for your help with this.

 Challenge Projects

  During our Oregon Trail study, every child is expected to do at least one challenge project. I have a list of possible ideas, but your child may think of others. Other ideas should be approved by me first. When students present, they are expected to talk for at least 1 minute about it. This is for the speech grade and should be practiced. To see ideas, click on the OT Challenge Project link on the left. If you get a paper newsletter, ideas will be on the back. Thank you for your help with these.

Reflex Update

    Students will be able to continue the present Reflex link until June 30. A little before that, I can set up my next year's account and add your child to that so they can continue through the summer. They will start with a diagnostic again as the 2 programs are not connected but will be able to continue this practice until the end of August. Please let me know if you'd like your child to continue through the summer. I will then let you know when they can switch to the new Reflex. Neither program will be available July 13-15.
