It's the last week of elementary school! It has been an amazing year, and I consider it a great privilege to have worked with such wonderful young people (not to mention their fabulous families). Have a wonderful summer!
Here's what our future 6th graders will be up to this week...
Notes for the week...
** After a little bit of rearranging, we have finally scheduled our 2nd annual Support Staff Appreciation Breakfast for this Wednesday, May 30, at 9:00 am. Please send the items you signed up to contribute in the morning with your students, preferably already prepared. We are so excited to be able to serve the "unsung heroes" of Discovery School after they have served us all year long!
** On Friday, June 1, we will be celebrating our last day of elementary school at the pool and social area in Quinta Bella. A cost of L200 will cover rental of the swimming pool, drinks, snacks, and lunch. Transportation will be provided by a few of our moms who have volunteered to help transport students, so we will need for you to sign and return the permission slip sent home today as soon as possible.
** If you would like to participate in the Noche Beneficiosa for Ms. Regina Ochoa on Wednesday, please send the 160 lps as soon as possible. If you would like to make a donation toward Ms. Regina's medical costs directly rather than buying a Wendy's meal, let me know and I can send you information about how to do so!
** In order to help you keep updated with special classes, I have posted the links to the blogs for Spanish, Spanish Social Studies, Music, French, and PE in the right-hand sidebar under "My Blog List." These blogs are updated every week, just like our class blog, so be sure to check in regularly to stay up-to-date on these classes!
This week in class...
We will finish reading Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan and will have our final graded discussion over the novel. In Language, we'll be reviewing and practicing the proper use of prepositions and prepositional phrases.
This week we'll be winding up our year of fifth-grade math by creating an ABC Book of math concepts and skills.
We will be finishing up our year with some great Engineering Challenges as well as exploring the weird world of Oobleck!
It has been a pleasure working with these promising young minds and hearts this year, and I'm so excited to hear about their continuing journey! Best wishes!
