It's shaping up to be an exciting week here at Charles Ellis! We are going to hit the ground running to pack as much fun and learning into the short week that we can!
Lessons this week will include a lot of writing! Everyone will be working on their essays based upon their social studies works. 4th graders are focusing on Valley Forge, 5th is all about the causes of WWI, and 6th is writing about Europe. I'm looking forward to reading your pieces! You will have a vocabulary test Monday. Click HERE to see the words list. You will NOT have a word study list this week.
We do NOT have school on Friday. Thursday marks the end of the term. Please be sure that all works from term one have been given to your teachers. 6th graders: it is extremely important that you are checking your PowerSchool closely to take care of any missed assignments before you leave Thursday afternoon. Your first report card will be printed and sent home on October 16!
Finally, parent/teacher conferences for term 1 will be taking place the week of October 8th and 15th. Mr. Trent’s homeroom families: please click HERE to sign up for a time that is most convenient for your family.
Have an awesome weekend,
