The Week of May 2, 2016

Happy first day of May!  I hope you're ready for a good FIRST week of the LAST month of school!

Monday, we will continue our discussion on environmentalism.  We will talk about the history of the environmentalism movement, the natural resources we must protect, and ways you can do your part to be environmentally friendly.  I enjoyed seeing your designs for land usage along our fictional "Bobcat River".  After our lesson, I'm going to challenge you to redesign your land usage so that it incorporates some of the environmentally friendly ideas we will discuss.  I'm excited to see how creative you can be with this challenge!

The reminder of our week will focus on preparing for Charles Ellis Presents:  The Works of Nature!  If you have a part in our skit, be sure to have your part memorized.  In addition, we will be busy making costumes, the set/scenery, and creating choreography for the song.   We have a lot to do, and I'm trusting that you will use your time wisely to make our show the best it can be.  Tickets go on sale for $5 Monday in the media center.  Please return your permission slip, if you have not done so already.

Friday will be our field trip to Tybee Island!  We will be touring the light house property and climbing to the top to see a birds-eye view of the Georgia coast!  After that, we will do a beach walk that will include seeing some awesome sculptures made during the SCAD Sands Arts Festival!  We will end our beach day with a relaxing picnic by the ocean.  I can't think of a better way to end our week!  Be sure to bring in your permission slip and $1 to participate no later than Wednesday, May 4.

I'll see you Monday morning,
Mr. Trent
