Map Testing begins for our class on May 9th, 10th, 11th from 8:30 to 10:00. Please don’t schedule an appointment at this time and make sure your child has a substantial breakfast.

Holy Week-April 10th to 14th

Dear Parents,

We had an unexpected, early deliver of my grandson, Miles Joseph Twining, on Monday, April 10th. This early bird changed plans and disrupted my Holy Week posting. However, babies don’t wait for schedules and calendars! He is doing well and is at home with his mom and dad. He is a blessing for our family!


Religion- This week and last week we have been taught by students as they share a song, quote, action word, prayer and special artifacts for the prayer table. They have been working collaboratively in teams. The students have enjoyed this Prayer Table Project very much.


Reading- On March 30th the students dressed and spoke as a favorite fictional character. The students shared their character trait charts with 6th grade buddies. Students read favorite parts of their books and played a,Who Am I? game. Check out the photos below.


Science- The field trip to the Burke Museum was a learning sensation. The students had a wonderful introduction to fossils. We will continue learning about fossils in class.

Math– We are continuing with fractions and telling time to the minute. Students are reviewing math facts from 0-12 and taking a short quiz.

Please have a wonderful Easter and Easter break. I will see you all on April 24th.

God Bless!
