Welcome March–as it comes in like a lion! Please remind your children that next week the weather will be freezing–they need to wear their winter coats still. Wed. the students will receive ashes in the afternoon. Next week also brings IOWA testing, and for 7th graders, the CogAts. Every grade tests in the morning; so please have your child 1) get a good night sleep; 2) eat a good breakfast; 3) bring in a snack; and 4) relax and do their best. These tests are important, and are another way of measuring your child’s progress.
**Reminder-Monday, 3/4 after school until 4:00pm will be another Science Fair mentoring session. All students have their Materials & Procedures index card due Friday, 3/8. Just let me know if your child is staying! Students should be thinking about “doing” their experiment now; they don’t have to wait until mid-March to complete it.
Grade 6–Tues 3/5 Deep under a volcano worksheet; Thurs 3/7 Comparing Cinder cones, Composite, and Shield Volcanoes.
Grade 8–Presenting their Wanted poster of their element; and making a 3-dimensional pop-out book.
Grade 7–will only have Grammar & Literature classes in the afternoon.
Have a great weekend-even though it’s cold, we’re into March & Spring training Baseball has begun!
