We have a bunch this week!
PARCC: The PTA is using this sign-up to organize healthy snacks for testi ng that starts next week! We will test Tuesday-Thursday next week and Monday-Wednesday the following week.
Reading: We are prepping our research-based debates, working on different vocabulary ideas (Greek and Latin Roots, Context Clues and Academic Vocabulary).
Math: We're getting back into gear after a (hopefully) restful spring break. We're still pushing forward with year-long review/PARCC testing preparations. Students have been working really hard to get lots of practice PARCC problems done in class as well as independent practice on Khan Academy and IXL at their own pace. I'm really happy with the progress we've been making and I'm optimistic testing will go well in a couple weeks =) Homework assignments will be brief this week but are very important to if you're able an extra pair of eyes to check them over will be helpful. I will also give them feedback when they turn in their homework.
EfS: this week we're putting together our race plans for April 16th on community day starting at 8AM. Please plan to come join us, we'd love family volunteers and/or runnners/walkers.
Here is some more information about the Race from students:
