We plan to be outside next Wednesday afternoon. Weather dependent, we’ll head to Townsend Park for a tall tale writing activity. Students should dress for the weather (boots, snow pants, etc.) and be prepared to spend the afternoon outside. We won’t leave until after lunch. Students can order hot lunch if they would like.
Our Bible unit is continuing to cover Jesus’ birth and early life. Next week, we’ll look specifically at the birth of Jesus. Students have a Bible memory quiz on Friday of next week. (Additionally, the unit test will likely take place the following Friday.)
Students are continuing studying events leading up to the Declaration of Independence. They’re learning about different perspectives of loyalist and patriots.
The students have begun a mystery reading unit. Students have been reading “easy” mysteries to kick off our unit. This is to help with remembering vocabulary terms specific to mysteries. This next week they’ll add a little more difficulty to their mystery reading. We’ll kick off our mystery reading book clubs in March. The students have a Daily Language Review quiz on Thursday.
Originally, we were not scheduled to have school on Monday. Due to all the snow/ice/well days, school is back on for Monday. If you plan on being out of town, please be sure to touch base with Mrs. Radius to make sure that your child is marked down for an excused absence. Hot lunch option one on Monday is: bbq chicken drumstick, cornbread, and salad bar.
Immerse Bible Reading
The middle school students were invited to join in on reading the New Testament (NLT) throughout this spring. Nearly 50 students in 5th-8th grade have joined the challenge. If your child chose to sigd up, you should have received a paper last week with more information. (Or click here.) Books will hopefully arrive by the middle of next week. We hope to start our first discussion groups during lunch on Thursday, March 7.
