It's the first week of the last term of the school year! Are you ready for a good week? Like always, we will be busy.
In math, we will finish up our studies on volume. In science, we will spend some time talking about fossil fuels. Mr. Brandon will be here to give you a lesson, too. Your "Natural Resources Bingo" choice sheet is due Friday. You will also have a test on natural resources on Friday.
Starting Monday, we will be taking the quarterly assessments. You will have one each day this week. We will use these assessments to find strengths and areas of need so we can plan our studies for the remainder of the school year. Be sure to eat a good breakfast each morning and bring a bottle of water to keep your brain hydrated. HERE is an interesting article by Joshua Gowin that explains why your brain needs water to function properly.
Parent/Teacher conferences will take place over the next two weeks. If you forget your time, or need to reschedule, please let me know ASAP. Remember, students are always welcome to come to conferences, too!
Finally, please return any order forms/money by Thursday if you are planning on purchasing any Scholastic books. Keep in mind, the Book Fair is also taking place this week in the library. Books, books everywhere!
I hope you had a great weekend. I'm looking forward to spending the week with you at Ellis!
