Proulx Newsletter 05/15-19/2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 33/37 of the 2016-2017 school year. We look forward to a successful, fun-filled finish of the 5th Grade year.  This part of the 3rd term has arrived just in time to finish up our finals in Social Studies, Math and Writing.  Since this week is MAP testing, teachers always advise students to get plenty of rest each night, and to bring healthful, protein and fruit/vegetable snacks for the most benefit.

My class will begin to practice skits for Chapel. Parents are free to come in to watch:  Date: 5/24 from 9:00-9:25 a.m.  (First Grade Reading buddies will be a part of our presentation again this year.  We are excited to have them join in!)

Looking ahead:
May 15 - Begin MAP testing (Monday-Friday)
May 17 - Spring Band Assembly
May 19 - SPIRIWEAR Day!  
May 24 - Proulx Class Chapel.
