One Week Until Spring Break

Filed under: Uncategorized — mpkane @ 9:57 pm

March 18 – 22. (Back to school on Monday, April 1)

ISAT tests are done. We may be ready for a vacation but let’s work hard these last days before this well deserved break.

March is Women’s History Month. We’ll be looking at women who fought for equal rights, again, learning how to do research on the internet.

Fourth graders have been reading the novel Holes, by Louis Sachar. They will finish this week with a viewing of the movie.

Homework — four doses. That’s all!

Second round of ISAT and on to SPRING BREAK.

Filed under: Uncategorized — mpkane @ 8:30 am

This week the third graders finish up ISAT testing with Reading on Tuesday and Math on Wednesday. FOURTH graders also have Science on Thusday and Friday (40 multiple choice questions each day).

*****BREAKING NEWS –We will NOT be taking the ISAT Science test on Thursday afternoon.  We just got word to administer part 1 Monday morning.  Part 2 of the 4th grade Science ISAT will be Friday morning.
Then one week of regular instruction and time for a break. Hope the weather rewards our hard work.

FIELD TRIP – This Thursday, the 14, 3rd and 4th grades will go to the Auditorium Theater downtown for a really special treat – Alvin Ailey Dance Company. The performance is in the morning so we will eat lunch in our classrooms back at school around noon. It would be best if students could bring a lunch from home to bypass the time change in the lunchroom.

As always, thank you for all your support.

Let’s look at this month more closely. ISAT testing begins Tuesday the 5th and takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes each morning for 8 days. Fourth graders take SCIENCE in addition to Reading and Math.  Encourage your child to put forth his or her BEST effort. We won’t give a lot of homework so that students can get a really good night’s sleep before testing.

FIELD TRIP – MARCH 14TH – THE PURPLE PAPER MISTAKENLY SAID 15TH. This is a dream come true. I can’t think of any place I’d rather take the class.
Enjoy this peek.

SPRING BREAK IS THE LAST WEEK OF MARCH – the 25th to the 30th.

We have EIGHT full five-day weeks right after Spring Break so let’s hope for good weather and enjoy that time.
