Dear Parents, Apr. 15, 2019
This is Holy Week! Yesterday we celebrated Palm Sunday. May Jesus truly be the King of our hearts. May each of your families have a Blessed Easter!
Most students have completed all the MAP tests (Reading, Math, and Language). Most students were able to meet the goals set for them. Results of these tests will be sent home with your child's final grade card. There are a few students who still need to return the grade card envelope (with 2 stamps). Please send them in as soon as possible. Originally mid-terms were to be sent home last Friday, but date changed. It will be sometime after the Easter break. If you checked PowerSchool to see how your child was doing, and they have a "D" or an "F" there is still time to raise this grade. Please make sure that they study for each test, and if they are struggling with a homework assignment, please let me know. I will gladly help them before school or after school.
During this week we will discuss the following within:
RELIGION ~~ Due to Map testing and Music (Joust) practice, we were unable to complete Chapter 15. The study guide will come home today for sure. The test will be given on Thursday. This chapter covers the events of Holy Week, so it is very appropriate and hopefully will make the week more meaningful.
Spelling ~~ This weeks words are homophones. We began our study of these words last week. The pretest will be Monday, Apr. 15th and the posttest will be given on Wednesday, Apr. 17th. Students will be given the next list of words before the break. It will be a short week upon our return, but look for the test over this next set of words to be given on Friday, April 26th.
Handwriting ~~ Students will learn capital cursive O and D.
Math ~~ Most students did well on the Chapter 18 Fractions Test. I will meet with students who found them challenging on Monday. On Monday I will also meet with students to discuss last Friday's Simple Solutions results. Students will take Timed Test M this week. It is the final test that students need to master. Once they have shown that they have mastered it, they will no longer need to drill each day~~ no parent signature will be required! Due to the 2 short weeks, we will be "off schedule" (not the "every Friday" event) with Simple Solutions quizzes. Students will not take the next quiz next Tuesday when they return from break, but on Wednesday. They will be required to complete lesson 105 before next Tuesday ~~ there is always time given in school for this to be done.
Social Studies ~~ We will begin our study of Newspaper 11. This newspaper discusses local government. We will talk about city council and the mayor. The test over this newspaper will be after Easter.
Reading ~~ Check out Sr. Carolyn's website.
Grammar/Writing ~~ Check out Sr. Carolyn's website.
Science ~~ Check out Sr. Carolyn's website.
God bless all,
