Lots of paperwork has been coming home over the last week. Please ask your student about it. The opera permission slip needs to be returned with $4, hopefully before April vacation. The Reading Olympics Celebration movie permission slip needs to be returned by Thursday, April 12th as well. Students will also be taking the mult. and div. facts check on Monday, and that paperwork will need to be returned as well.
The 5th grade teachers were so proud of all the hard work that the students committed to during the month of March. The 5th graders read almost 90,000 minutes during the month. What an amazing accomplishment. Students were celebrated for their successes at the closing ceremonies on Friday, April 6th. Ask to see your students certificates when you have the chance.
SBAC testing for the state will be starting after April vacation. We will be having practice tests the first week, followed by 1.5 weeks of testing. Please make sure your students are getting a good nights sleep, and are eating breakfast and bringing a snack. This year we will have an incentive program for students to do their best. The students are hardworkers, and I know they can put their best foot forward and aim for success.
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
