The Week of January 14, 2019

The annual PTA Boosterthon is in full swing, and we are having a great time raising money for our school.  Please continue to ask your family and friends for pledges.  The Fun Run happens this Friday!

Social studies lessons will focus on the women's suffrage movement, the Korean War, and environmental issues in Canada.  Our novel studies will continue with a focus on alliteration.  Please be sure to complete your lesson follow-up work in a timely manner.  In addition, complete your www.quill.org and www.newsela.com assignments by Friday.  You will have a quiz on Monday based upon the vocabulary words you received last week.  Because of the Fun Run, you will NOT have a word study quiz this week.

We will also be spending a lot of time this week preparing for the upcoming Charles Ellis Presents: The Timeline of Life musical.  I've very impressed with the script, song, and choreography you've created.  I'm excited to see how the costumes and scenery come together this week.  Be sure to memorize those lines and music lyrics...the show is coming up soon!

There are a few other important things to keep in mind for the week:

1.  There is an informational meeting for everyone who is interested in our Erdkinder (7th/8th grade) program.  It will take place Tuesday evening at 6:30.  
2. The Elli spelling bee will take place Wednesday.  Good luck to all those who are participating!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mr. Trent
