This week the students will edit, revise, and turn in their Wax Museum rough drafts. On Friday, March 3, the corrected rough drafts will be sent home to be typed into a Final Draft. They will start this process at school, but it will need to finished at home via their Google Accounts. All students will know how to login, but time will need to be given next weekend or on Monday 3/6 to finish typing at home. If this is not possible, please let me know and I will make other arrangements for your student. The rough drafts are due (electronic copy only from their Google Account) on Tuesday, March 7 or before.
Our next field trip will be on Thursday, March 23rd. We’ll be going to the Will- Stauffer farm which is a historic farm connected with Aurora Colony, in Aurora. The students from past years have LOVED this field trip. They do jobs around the historic farm that children would have done back in the mid to late 1800’s.
Hoop-a-thon pledge information was sent home last week. Hopefully students have already started getting pledges. Remember that the pledges can be “turned in” online this year. Click here to find out more!
