This week we were doing many different activities, including the iReady Assessment, Martin Luther King, Jr. learning, and an author visit!
Margriet Ruurs has authored over 35 books for children and educators, and one of her stories is featured in our Journeys textbook! Her visit was a real treat for students and staff alike. We do need to pay for this visit, so we are asking students to contribute $3 each. Many of you have already sent this in, thank you! If you haven’t yet, please send the money as soon as possible.
Also on the calendar is our fourth grade music performance called “Oregon or Bust!” This is planned for February 28 at 7:00. So you can plan ahead, students are expected to dress as pioneers. Boys should wear jeans or overalls, and a cotton collared shirt. A bandana and cowboy had will be provided. Girls should wear a simple cotton skirt and blouse or a cotton dress.
Irving Family Math Night is scheduled for Wednesday, February 6 from 5:00-6:30. Pizza will be served, as will lots of fun math games to explore. Please RSVP so we know how much pizza to have on hand. A letter will be in the Friday folder.
We will be taking our next field trip on February 7. We will travel to the state capital to learn about how our state government works. Chaperones are needed, but in order to save cost, we only have enough seats on the bus to accommodate students and teachers. If you are interested in helping with this fun field trip, perhaps carpooling or just driving yourself will work. Even with saving cost with the bus, this trip will still cost $5.00 per student.
Above students are working on learning how to join into activities with others.
