What a fabulous week of writing! All of the students worked so hard polishing and refining their writing skills. Thank you so much to all of you who contributed time with your student finishing up compositions and/or providing snacks to keep us afloat!
As you know, we will be taking the Writing STAAR test on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Thank you for your "Confidential" contribution! We will not have spelling or reading logs that week so that students can be rested. Please help by ensuring your child has a full night's rest and a healthy and filling breakfast. A snack with water will be provided each day. If you would like to send additional snacks with your child these days, please make sure they are dry, non-sticky snacks. Snacks that stain fingers and/or are juicy (ie. cheetos, and fruit....) also stain STAAR documents and answer sheets.
Can you believe we're talking about 5th grade already?! Please fill out and return the neon orange Enrollment Form no later than April 1st. These forms enable CCE to staff accurately for the upcoming school year. I cannot turn them in until we have a full class set. Just seven more to go! Thank you for turning them in so quickly!
This week, due to the Spring Holiday, we will read with our First Grade Buddies on Thursday, April 2nd. Students, this is our week to bring books to read to our buddies, so please spend time selecting books that would be of interest to them. Don't forget to prepare questions to ask them as you read the story.
From the Counselor:
This month we will focus on HONESTY. Honesty means that you tell the truth. At school, if you forget your homework, then just tell your teacher the truth! At home, if you are mean to your brother or sister, then OWN IT and admit that you made a mistake. In April, if your teacher sees you being HONEST, then you will get a sticker to wear all day so that other students will know that you demonstrated our Character Word of the Month!
Have a wonderfully multi-cultural weekend!
