Hello to the third quarter of our 2017-2018 school year! We have started our third book, “Island of the Blue Dolphins”, of which each student has their own copy and is reading in class. In honor of the Winter Olympics, we will be having some friendly ‘competition’ of our own on the next few flex days, so stay tuned for pictures!
To align with how 5th grade late work is scored, for quarters 3 and 4, any work turned in late will have an automatic 10% deduction made from the score. Please remember, though, that SOME points are better than NONE.
Lastly, in order to use our time to its maximum potential, Monday spelling pretests will no longer be administered. Spelling worksheets will still be handed out to students Monday morning and due Wednesday morning. The Friday test will be the only spelling test students now take.
Thank you and stay warm!
