Proulx Newsletter 10/10-14/2016

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 6 of 37.  Students are at the end of MAP testing (make-ups next week), and we have begun to move forward with our Island Map project.  Students will work every day for a few minutes to make their map keys, draw their landforms and bodies of water, and add all of the required elements in order to be finished by the due date.  We are all excited to get to the day when students will do their presentations, and share their "Islands."

Service Project: HandsOnGreaterPortland Greeting Cards for Meals on Wheels.  Please remember, if you have an idea, or a service project our fifth graders can be a part of, let us know!
