I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. This week on Friday is the international festival. Please make sure your child is working on their model for the festival which is due on Thursday and collecting other items that they will be putting on display for the festival. Additional information on the festival will be going home in students Friday folders this Monday. Wednesday is families ties night. There will be no homework given that night so families can spend time together. In math this week we will continue to learn about fractions. In ELA students will be receiving a new set of spelling words and a reading log. Students will take their mystery test and spelling test on Monday since they did not have school last Thursday and Friday. Our next genre study we will be starting in the near future is on Biographies. Last week during science students began to learn about matter. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
