Weekly Update

     In class this week we began SBAC testing.  Most students completely finished math and began the language arts sections.  Thanks for helping by having your student here and ready to go.  I am proud of their serious efforts when it comes to this testing. In social studies we began our study of pioneers and their journey along the Oregon Trail. The students are participating in a simulation activity and are going to be challenged with difficult situations such as water shortages, rattlesnake bites, and fording dangerous rivers.  The students chose their identity today and began their supply lists for their journey west!

   Next Friday May 19th, we have a school wide book exchange scheduled. Students can bring in books to receive credit for a book(s) they can pick out at the exchange. Students can bring in as many books as they wish for the book exchange.  I have a box ready to collect donations, so send in those used books your student is no longer reading and get him or her stocked up with some great summer reading.

      Volunteers are still needed for our field trip to the Sherwood Heritage Museum on Wednesday June 7th.  We will be walking to the museum in the morning and will be returning to Hopkins before lunch. Thank you to those who have offered to volunteer so far. Please let me know if you would be interested in coming along.


Have a great weekend!
