What a fabulous week of writing! All of the students worked so hard polishing and refining their writing skills. I witnessed a lot of growth in their writing this week! 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!
FREE BREAKFAST FOR ALL STUDENTS ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY
Nothing prepares students better for testing than a healthy, satisfying breakfast! On STAAR testing days (Tuesday, March 29th and Wednesday, March 30th) breakfast is FREE to ALL students! Students can start their day off right with a delicious meal in the cafeteria and then head off to their classrooms! If you plan to have your child eat at school, we will be taking breakfast count on Monday so that there will be enough food prepared for everyone. Breakfast begins at 7:20 AM.
As you know, we will be taking the Writing STAAR test next Tuesday. 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 an additional snack with your child, please make sure it is a dry, non-sticky snack. Snacks that stain fingers and/or are juicy (ie. cheetos, and fruit....) also stain STAAR documents and answer sheets. We will be sending home all writing from Cruise Write Along. Please review their compositions and past Night Writes to celebrate this past week and help to brainstorm even more ideas they could possibly use for STAAR. It has happened before that the STAAR prompt was actually very similar to one we had already written!!
Fourth grade READ IN Day!
In celebration of our fourth grade writers, we will be having a READ IN Day on Thursday March 31. Students may bring a beach towel and a flashlight for some relaxing reading time.
Can you believe we're talking about 5th grade already?! Please fill out and return the yellow Enrollment Form no later than Tuesday, April 12th. These forms enable CCE to staff accurately for the upcoming school year. I cannot turn them in until we have a full class set. Thank you for turning them in so quickly!
This week, due to the Spring Holiday, we will read with our First Grade Buddies on Friday, April 1st. 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.
Have a wonderfully Multi-Cultural weekend!
