In the Classroom:

MAP testing begins this week for all large groups. We have been reviewing and learning important concepts over the school year and are excited to see the wonderful scores our students achieve this year! Please remember to have your children get a good night’s sleep so they are well rested for testing.

I hope everyone has a great week and remembers to be respectful, responsible, and safe! 🙂

Remember to keep your child home if they are exhibiting COVID-19 type symptoms.

Spelling/Vocabulary Words:

These will be a Spelling/Vocab test on FRIDAY this week! Spelling/Vocabulary tests will be over the novels we are reading in class. Students will be given a list of 10 words found in the chapters we will be reading in class together. On Friday they will need to spell each word and then write sentences for each word so they can show their knowledge of the vocabulary.
