State Capitol Field Trip

February 2, 2018

Dear Parents and Families,

On February 23rd our class will go on a guided field trip to the State Capitol. We plan to leave at 8:30am and return at 1:30pm. Students will need to bring a sack lunch or let their teachers know that they need one ordered from the school cafeteria by February 16th. There cost for this field trip, is $4.00 for the bus. It is important that your child wear closed toed, comfortable walking shoes, and dress in layers as part of the field trip will be outside.

If you would like to join us as a chaperone, please fill out and return the bottom portion of this letter. Seating will be limited on the bus as we are only taking one bus for both classes. If you could car pool and meet us at the capitol that would be terrific!  Students are more than welcome to bring along books, drawing things, and electronics to entertain themselves on the bus ride. Please remember that all electronics are brought at your own risk. The school and teachers are not responsible for these items. However the buses will be locked at all times while we are not on them.

This field trip will be a wonderful opportunity for students to see first-hand where our legislators work. The tour includes the Rotunda, Senate, House Chambers, and the Governor’s Ceremonial Office. This knowledge will help support what we are learn in Social studies and our study of Oregon. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the field trip.

Warmly,

Ms. Perrigo, Mrs. Moss, and Ms. Holliday

Dear Parents and Families,

Last Friday, Irving began the Math Olympics. Packets went home in the Friday folders. Each night students need to practice their math facts and write down how many minutes they practiced. Please have a parent sign the form. Please return the slips daily.  The Math Fact Olympics will be running through Friday February 16th.  If you have any questions please let us know or if you don’t have a packet of slips let us know.

Here is a look into our Friendship Week Activities:

Dear Parents and Families,

In Writing this week we will be starting a writing performance task (similar to the state test given in May) as preparation. Students will be examining different resources (paper & online articles) and write a response. The students will then type their essays when they are finished. 

In Math, we will be starting to multiply and divide fractions. We are also changing improper fractions into mixed numbers and vice versa. The students have been doing a fantastic job with our fractions unit!
