I’m sorry that I’ve been out sick these last two days before break! Before everyone leaves for a much deserved week off, I wanted to be sure we had touched base with a few things.
After spring break, students will begin PARCC testing. Please help your child be prepared for success by getting a good night’s sleep and healthy breakfast. All testing will begin at 8:10 each morning, so arriving to school on time is also important. Below is the schedule of 5th grade PARCC testing.
Wed April 5th: 5th grade ELA 1
Thurs April 6th: 5th grade ELA 2
Fri April 7th: 5th grade ELA 3
Mon April 10th: 5th grade Math 1
Tues April 11th: 5th grade Math 2
Wed April 12th: 5th grade Math 3
Thurs April 13th: 5th grade Math 4

Lastly, while there is only minimal homework over spring break, I wanted to remind the class to have their TWAS letters signed and complete the Journey to Jo’burg packet by Tuesday, April 4th. Also, anyone in my math class should be sure to have the Division with Fractions word problems (Sets 1 and 2) completed when we return.
