It's finally March!!

We have 20 days until Spring. As we come to the end of trimester 2, we are continuing to help your child be prepared for middle school. Your child is expected to have all the supplies they need each day for school. Make sure your child is checking their other teachers' websites for assignments and information. We are trying to help your children become more independent students.

Thank you to all who donated to our Souper Bowl outreach. 5C donated MANY cans to the effort!!

In math, we will start multiplying and dividing fractions. We are still using Prodigy and IXL in our math class. They are online math resources that allow the teacher to adjust skills for the students to work through.

In ELA, we will spend the week continuing with verbs in grammar. We will begin vocabulary Unit 11 this Friday. We will begin working through the steps of writing a research paper. This is also Read Across America week with lots of fun reading activities planned.

In Science, we will wrap up the unit about cycles of the sun, moon, and Earth. There will be a test Friday, 3/5.

Here's a look at some upcoming important dates:

  • Monday 3/1 Wear a hat and sunglasses - Reading gives us a bright future

  • Tuesday 3/2 Dr. Seuss' Birthday - Dr. Suess add ons

  • Wednesday 3/3 - Get into Character - Come to school dressed as your favorite character

  • Thursday 3/4 - We are virtual - but still dress in sports-related clothes - Reading Jogs the Mind

  • Friday 3/5 - Cozy up With a Good Book - wear your Pj's (no slippers)

  • April 2-9 - SMS Closed for Easter Break

Students should be in winter weather uniforms. They should always have mittens and hats. We will go outside as much as we are able. Spirit wear is not part of the ES uniform.

Thank you for the privilege of teaching your children!
