Good Afternoon Parents, 


I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to the new year. I wanted to let you know about some upcoming events this week as well as some information regarding the black history month project. I have given the students an extension for the rough draft of the black history month project. They have till 8pm on Friday to share their paper with me on google docs. They should have already have done this. I will begin to edit Friday night. I also want to remind you that the presentations are on February 22. I will be sending out a schedule of the day next week. This week is multicultural week. Tomorrow is parent appreciation day and parents are invited to join us for lunch if they sent back the flyer that was in the Thursday folder last week. Thursday will be a tag day if students bring a canned food drive. Friday will be multicultural travel day. Students have been learning about France and I will be providing them snack on Thursday. 


In math the classes are finishing up their unit on fractions. They continue to learn about verbs in language arts and we have started a new novel Number the Stars in reading. This is about a girl growing up in the Holocaust. In social studies students are working on their black history month projects as well as learning about the american revolution. They have been working hard in all their subjects. Students will be taking their midyear scantron test the week of February 12th-15th. Please be sure your child is well rested and prepared for these assessments those days. 


Thank you for your continued support!


Ms. Keller
