Online Library

Students got a chance to log in and check out our new online library through Follett eBooks during media time today. They now have 24/7 access to hundreds of eBook and audiobook options. Student excuse #19 "I went to the library, but it was closed!" is no longer an option!

Field Trip Reminder

Don't forget about our annual Grand Lady Riverboat/Grand River Park field trip THIS Thursday!

You can do several things to ensure that your child has a positive experience during their field trip:

  1. Make sure your child has a good breakfast before the field trip. We will expend a lot of energy while outside on the trails.
  2. Be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. Dressing in layers is best as children can peel off an outer layer if they get warm.
  3. Children should wear long pants and closed toed shoes. This way they can explore without worrying about poison ivy, prickles, mosquitoes or stubbing their toes.

American Revolution Social Studies Test Tomorrow!

We are having our American Revolution Test on Tuesday, May 12. Students received a study guide last week to help them prepare for the test. The test will need to be done without notes, book or the study guide itself. However, notebooks may be used on the essay question at the end of the test. This test includes information from Chapters 10-12 in our textbook, however, we have been doing a variety of centers, in-class activities and simulations in order to explain concepts and perspectives from this time. The online quiz for Chapters 10 and 11 will be helpful, but the quiz for Chapter 12 will include a lot of extra information that students don't need for this test. The test includes 9 multiple choice questions, seven events to put in order from earliest to latest, 3 short answer questions and one essay question that will be a separate grade. I am attaching a link to the study guide below in case you need an extra copy. Happy studying!

Busy Week

Thank goodness for half-days and a long weekend! Students presented their History and Science Fair projects this week, just in time to show them off at conferences! I was impressed with the wide variety of high-quality projects that came in, not to mention that the kids did an AWESOME job leading their own conferences! One week 'til Spring Break!
