Hello students and parents!
We are starting our fourth and last quarter this week. Here is what we have planned:
We will continue with our integrated research project. Students are gathering information to complete their research guide. Hopefully children will be ready to begin their written report this week.
We have started our Literature Circle roles a few weeks ago. The students have been divided into teams, where each member gets a different role every week. The roles may be: Discussion director, Summarizer, Vocabulary Finder and Illustrator. Girls are reading The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes, while boys are reading A Taste of Blackberries by Doris Buchanan. This week the students must read independently at home and be ready to discuss the chapter.
Students will choose from a variety of strategies for solving multiplication and division word problems.
Our little scientists will continue experimenting with the properties of rocks and minerals. This week we will also talk about the effect of weathering in rocks.
Geography: Learning about landforms
Geology: The Rock Cycle

READ – A- THON – Grades K – 5 will continue their annual read-a-thon! Students were giving a Reading Log (sheet) and a book mark last Monday. The student who has read the most pages in his/her class by March 27 will win a lunch off campus sponsored by our DPTO. We ask parents for their support encouraging their child(ren) to read, read, and record their reading in their logs.
Scholastic News: Scholastic Book Club leaflets will be given out this week. This is an optional activity offered by the school, because we know you want to motivate your child to read at home. With your purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem more books for the benefit of your children in our school. The due date to purchase the books online is March 27. The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date.
