Be on the Lookout!

  • Interim reports will come home in folders today. Please review, sign and return these.
  • I am so proud of how hard students worked on their reading EOG yesterday. It’s been such a wild year, and this was the first time they have taken a test like this. We worked hard, then played hard:)
  • With our math EOG right around the corner, I have a few pieces of information to be sure we are ready to go on June 1st.
    In order to be sure our students have working devices for testing, please note the following: If a student has a county-issued chromebook, they need to bring it and their charger to school daily no later than May 27. We want to be sure they have been logged onto the network, and have all of their updates/permissions before testing. Students will not be permitted to BYOD for testing. Students who do not have a county-issued device will be provided a school laptop for testing.
  • Please send a blanket or beach towel that can be used for outdoor reading and hallways reading as we work to build our reading stamina over these next few weeks! 
  • A note from Ms. Woosley’s 2nd graders: It is Service Project Time!  Second grade students are in the process of completing service projects in class and we could use your help! Attached is a list of items that we will be collecting for the Holly Springs Food Cupboard.  We will also be putting posters and boxes in each hallway AND a box outside at the front of the school to help students face to face and virtually have an easy way to drop off items.  We will be collecting items from May 10 to May 28.  Thank you so much for helping us put our Positivity into action and help in our community at the same time!

This week in Literacy:

We will be working with reading PLAYS this week! This genre is also known as Drama, and will allow students to learn to read and interact with a different form of literature.

Students have begun their Food Truck Business Plans! They are very excited to be entrepreneurs and design their own truck. I posted to the class story today information about Kona Ice treats for each student. If you are missing the paper copy that came home today in folders you can review details here.

This week in Math:

Our last multiplication quiz (12’s) was administered this morning. Some students may have earned all their icecream sundae pieces! Yay for these multiplication masters! Most children will need to makeup one or more tests from not passing or being absent. Those makeup days will be Fri May 21, Tue May 25, and Fri May 28th. Our goal is to have our class sundae party on Fri, June 4th. Please check out our signup genius to help make this reward and celebration a great event! word-iscreamyouscream
