Before Dr. Seuss died he said this, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened".

He also said this, "Sometimes the question is complicated but answers are simple".

We appreciate you DR. SEUSS!

We are reading, The Life and Time of The Ant. We are learning about all the jobs that ants have and how important they are to our environment.

We are writing poems and we are practicing our writing, getting ready for AzMerit and our end of the year Galileo Assessment.

#### School DIY Idea

You will need highlighters in pink, blue, and yellow. Grab your yellow highlighter and open it, then grab your blue highlighter and push it on your yellow one. Do the same to your pink and there you have your very own rainbow highlighter!!

Mrs. Parnell's Corner

We have been so busy practicing our fractions, summarizing our reading, writing using correct punctuation, and learning about magnets that the days are flying by! We have added some blended learning to our day also. This is where for part of the day, never during instruction, the students will work on lessons on the computer. This not only helps with their content knowledge, but also with computer skills. With this, if your child wears glasses, please make sure they bring them to school.

Just a reminder - Please return those parent surveys. Our school data and incentives are tied to the results and we need to have 80% returned as a school. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Have a fantastic weekend!
