We will be discussing the possible presentation piece to our papers this week.  More information to come.  We will also start our next reading activities this week.

We will be sending in our contest essays the end of this week - please make sure to get your permission slip that should have been turned in 3 weeks ago

WN entries 45 by 2/22/15.  Writer's Notebook check will be in the next few weeks.

Astronomy- check out the planets that are our now and work on your group sharing project.

This is very late, however it is still effecting your grade so if you still need to take the practice test that was due Jan. 30, go to this site:


Please go to this site and take the grade level appropriate practice test so that you are familiar with the format before the actual test.  There will be a page at the end with your score, please print that sheet and bring it in for a homework grade.  You will receive a homework grade for making a reasonable attempt at the practice, not the score that you score. This will be due no later than January 30.  Please have your parents sign the sheet before you bring it in.  Knowing that the test is a little over an hour, you should work on it for no longer than the actual test time.

On February 19 we will have a parent night with Dr. Rich Shade and Patti Garrett Shade working on creativity.  Our staff had a staff development with them the Friday, February 13.  It should be a fantastic time and I am looking forward to the time spent.  Please look for more information in the Star News and the flyers sent home.  Their website is www.curiosiateaching.com.

Have a great week!!!
