The last full month of the school year! Here we go!
Smarter Balanced State Testing: Our testing has been pushed a week so we can accommodate everyone's schedules. We will now take the state test starting Tuesday, May 15th. We have scheduled times on the 15th, 16th and 17th. On the 15th, we will take the Math test during our normal Math time, so no Math homework that night. On the 16th and 17th, students will take the test during Writing time. If your child doesn't finish the two tests (Math and English Language Arts) during these three sessions, they will be pulled to work on the test with Miss Nanni on another day.
Book Fair: Our spring Book Fair is next week, May 7th-10th in the cafeteria. This is a great opportunity to get some books ahead of time for summer reading! The book fair will be open 7:45-9:30am and 2:00-4:30 Monday-Wednesday. On Thursday, it will be open all day! If your child is bringing money to school for the book fair, please make sure they bring it in a wallet, pouch, or at least a baggie with their name on it so that no loose money falls out of pockets and backpacks. Thank you!
Astronomy Camp-out Potluck: We are having a potluck dinner at 6:30 on Saturday (June 2nd) to kick-off the camp-out. If you can bring something for the potluck, that would be great! Here is the link to the sign-up. We will have a BBQ available at the campsite, so dinner will be burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and sides.
Astronomy Camp-out RSVP: Students will receive an information form and RSVP for the camp-out on Monday. Please have these forms signed and returned by the end of the week. If your child is not attending, there is a space to check for that as well. If you need to change your mind, no worries, I would like a rough idea of how many people will be attending. The astronomer will also be visiting our classroom that week to get us ready for what stars and planets we will see that night!
