Heading into vacation...

We have quite a busy week ahead of us! Here are the a list of the things that are due by Thursday 12/21 so that when we return everything is new and stress free in 2018. 

Final Brochures - 12/21 (Rough drafts should be in to me by now or at least by Monday for some feedback) Reading group work- most groups have individual projects/ written assignments that are due either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday of this week. Spelling- for many, but not all groups spelling work should be done so we can wrap up our lesson and begin new when we return. These are due on the various days your child meets for group. Western states- packet and test will be on Thursday 12/21.....That's all for now. We'll keep you updated as the week progresses!


Mark your calendars!!
The VUES Geography Bee is coming soon! Students in each homeroom will get a chance to participate in answering geography questions, in hopes of representing their homeroom in the school Geography Bee. The preliminary rounds will be conducted prior to Christmas break. Our 2, fifth grade champions will then progress to the next round competing against students from fourth and sixth grade in the school GeoBee which will take place on January 9 @ 1:30. Here's a link to learn more about what the GeoBee entails and possible study questions!
