Be on the Lookout for…

  • Thank you for all the love you are shared last week for Teacher Appreciation Week! I definitely didn’t go into this profession for the perks, but your cards, treats, and gifts are making me feel like a rockstar!
  • Yearbooks came home last week. You must PURCHASE these to keep. If you do not wish to keep, please return to school. Do NOT allow students to write in these if you plan on returning them!
  • Mark Your Calendars- EOG Dates! These are right before and right after Memorial Day, which I know is inconvenient but unavoidable this year. It is SOOOOOOO important your child is present for the test so they can take it with ME, in THEIR classroom, in an environment they are familiar with. If they are late or absent, these conditions cannot be guaranteed. Friday, May 26th Grade 3 Reading and Grade 5 Science Tuesday, May 30th Grade 3 Math & Grade 4 Reading
  • Mrs. Vaughan’s wish list! It’s that time of year where supplies are running low and we need some help from parents. Our class is in need of: colored dry erase markers, sheet protectors, and eraser caps. If you are able to assist with this, it would be greatly appreciated and your child could earn dojo points!

This week in Literacy:

Students are heading into our last major unit of our reading for this year. Students will revisit the concept of government through 3 texts related to the subject. We will also spend a good deal of our reading and writing time beginning to review for the big ole test at the end of this month! I don’t want to overload anyone with copies and tasks, so Please email me to request any additional test materials you’d like to work on from home.
