"Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events." http://www.history.com/topics/holidays/labor-day
There will be no school Monday, September 4th in observance of Memorial Day. I'm sure you are ready for another long weekend after all the hard work you've been doing so far this school year!
There are a few things to keep in mind when you return to school Tuesday:
1. The progress reports I gave you Friday should be signed and given to me.
2. Please bring in one of the composition books you bought as part of your "back to school" supplies. One that includes pages that have graphing paper will work best, although this is not required.
3. There will be a vocabulary test on Friday, September 8th. You will receive your words Tuesday morning.
4. As always, your nightly homework is to study your vocabulary or word study words for 10 minutes and read a book of your choice for 20 minutes.
5. I will be sending home a Eureka Math practice workbook. You can use this workbook at home to practice your math skills. While not required, I am happy to check any work you complete in the booklet...simply place it in my inbox.
Have a wonderful weekend,
