Week 15 Newsletter

I am excited to be back in the States after my extended family vacation to Australia, New Zealand, and the Cook Islands.  We created many family memories and enjoyed many amazing sights and experiences.

This week, your student will receive the latest book report assignment.  For this project, they will have three parts that are due on January 25th.  First, they will be allowed to present any project they wish to create.  Second, they will create a 8 to 12 summary of their book.  Lastly, they will create a 4-6 sentence recommendation which will be displayed in the classroom for others to see about their book.  An information sheet will be coming home this week and should answer all questions.

If your child is interested in playing the recorder for the patriotic program they need to get their recorder slip in by this Wednesday.
