The Reading Olympics is in full swing. Please make sure to sign your student's log nightly in order for them to earn their minutes towards their goal Hopefully your student was able to accomplish a bunch of reading during the snow days.
SBAC testing: You may be receiving information regarding this topic via Digital Backpack or other forums during the next few weeks. SBAC testing is scheduled for when the students return from April break. All we ask of students is to do their best, and try their hardest. We will honor this hard work by limiting or eliminating homework and trying to plan some enrichment activities to participate in when they are not testing. Please try to make sure that your child: gets a good nights rest, eats breakfast, and comes with a snack. Don't hesitate to reach out to a 5th grade teacher with anymore questions.
Opera: Students will be traveling to the Hyde Cultural Center for experience with the arts right after April vacation to see the opera, Jack and Jill. They will get a preview of the performance by a singer and a pianist the first week in April. Please keep your eye out for the permission that week as well.
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
