Welcome to week 16 of 37. Remember, report cards come out Monday. I think we all appreciate the "Snow Days" grace period! This week we will put much effort into our Social Studies unit, with in-class research, and trading card project design-work! After a week of Geography Bee Preliminary Competition days, I am sure students are looking forward to a great winter trimester, and a fun rest-of-the-year!
This is our first 5-day week of 2017--let's make it a great one!
Service Project: We are looking at our schedule to plan our upcoming work with NWCO this trimester. We will need much parent help (drivers/chaperones). Be looking for dates/times, and the volunteer email to be sent in the coming weeks.
