It's a short week at Discovery School, but we've still got lots of learning planned!  Thanks for checking back in with us!

Notes for the week...

** As part of the school-wide Independence Day celebration on Thursday, September 13, we will be having our traditional "Honduran Breakfast" at 8:00am.  If you have not signed up to bring a breakfast item, please do so at the following link: Grade 5 Desayuno Catracho Sign-Up

** This Thursday, September 13, will be an early dismissal at 11:45.  There will be no school on Friday and Monday, September 14 and 17.

** All students have had the chance to practice logging into Engrade, and they are now expected to log-in regularly to check their grades.  If you did not receive the parent letter regarding creating your parent account, please let us know so that we can get the information to you.

** If students are unable to complete homework due to internet connectivity problems or technical issues, we ask parents to please send the homeroom teacher a text, email, or note to verify this.  Thank you!

This week in class...

We will be continuing with Bridge to Terabithia and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, discussing how both novels address our essential questions for the quarter: What role does imagination play in our lives? and How do our relationships change us?  We will also continue our emphasis on proper use of commas in writing.
