Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I will be teaching your child ELA (reading, grammar, spelling). I will try to follow the homework helpline assignments as best I can. As always, there may be some unforseeable events. Please keep in mind we need to have an open line of communication for you the student/parent to have a great year. Looking forward to a great school year!!

Spelling List 17 Encantado each due Tuesday.  Students are to make 5 columns (-ar, -er-, le, -en, -al) and write #1-20 in each corresponding column.  Test is Friday.

Reading: Paul Bunyan test tomorrow.

Grammar:  Irregular verb tenses test tomorrow.

For the remainder of the week, we will continue to work on mastering standards we are so close to. We will be looking at writing samples and the scoring rubric to see why the prompt got the grade it did.

Our class basket for the Chinese Auction is baking supplies.  Please send in your items so we can give the donation to PTO.

The 4th grade field trip is May 17th.  Parents that have signed up and have their PTO clearances may attend for a minimal fee.

NS will NOT be in session on Good Friday.  Classes will resume Easter Monday.

Have a great week!
