The Week of May 19, 2014

Can you believe it?  We've arrived at the last week of school!  This year has gone so fast; let's enjoy these last few days together before we start our summer break.

First, I wanted to congratulate you on your wonderful performances in "The Story of Numbers".  The show was spectacular, and I received many comments from parents and teachers that it was an amazing show.  In years to come I hope you will look fondly back on your final musical at Ellis.  I was so busy the night of the show that I did not take any pictures!  If you have any pictures that you wouldn't mind sharing with me, please email them to

Charles Ellis Presents:  The Story of Numbers

This week we focusing on placing closure on this school year.  We will clean the room and pack the materials.  We will also take some time to clean out our cubbies and other classroom spaces.  While we are working to do so, I will give you one final choice sheet to complete.  While they will not be graded and included on the last term's grades, the activities are designed to help you make a smooth transition into summer.  Your work is due the last day of school.  

One of my favorite traditions is to have the class vote on superlatives to be awarded the last day of school.  Everyone in our classroom has certain strengths that we have come to appreciate throughout the year.   This is your chance to show your friends what character traits and talents you see in them.  I'll give you the ballot tomorrow.  Please be sure to fill it out (secretly) and place it into the box by the end of the day Wednesday.

Parent/Teacher conferences will take place this week.  During our conference, we will discuss all the progress you've made this year.  I will also share 4th term grades, final averages for the year, your SRI score, you MAP score, and your CRCT results.  I look forward to meeting with everyone's families one last time this year!

Finally, don't forget that Friday is both a dress down day (free) and a half-day of school.  

I'll see you tomorrow,
Mr. Trent
