State Testing- Next week we will be taking our first Kansas State Assessment over reading in the morning. This will be on both Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. The kids and I have been preparing and feel very comfortable and confident heading into next week, but we could use your help! It is proven that performance will be at its height after a good nights sleep and a decent breakfast. Please help me in making sure that your child gets those two things, especially for next Tuesday and Wednesday! We also will need HEADPHONES and iPad's fully charged! Most of your kids have headphones, but if you could just double check with them that would be great. Thanks in advance for your support.

Permission Slips and Forms- There have been A LOT of permission slips and forms com ehome in that last week or two. I have gotten most of them back, but here is a refresher on what I need in case you haven't seen it yet :) There was a YELLOW form for the Human Growth and Development Video, which needs to be back by THURSDAY, APRIL 6TH. There was a BLUE field trip form that needs to be returned by FRIDAY, APRIL 7TH at the latest. There was a PURPLE chat-n-chew form that needs to be returned ASAP (only if your student wants to participate.) And last, but not least, there was a WHITE AND TAN form that needed to be corrected, signed, and returned. These are wanted back ASAP as well. Look out for one more permission slip coming home sometime this month...we will be taking one last field trip on May 17th! Please let me know if you have any questions about all of this...I know it's a lot!

Homework Change- Thanks for all of the support with our new homework change. I really appreciate everyones willingness to do what's best for the kids, even if it is during our final quarter together and totally unexpected. :) I'm hoping to see some great progress in math because of this change!

Author visits, safe assemblies, just dance finals, and connect four review! We have so much fun!
