Our team is very excited to see the growth our students have made on MAP and DIBELS.  Thank you all for your support with your child's education this year.  


Also, we would like to welcome back Mrs. Larimer, our speech/language therapist.  She has been out on maternity leave and the students are thrilled to work with her the remainder of the year. 


NEED fun IDEAS for summer to work on reading, writing, and math - 

  • Any real world application (create grocery list, check off items from, bake - great for fractions, etc)
  • Yatzee is great for math (addition and multiplication)
  • Games - any reading or math games are fun and great for kids.
  • Any online interactive reading or math games.  
  • Writing journal - draw a picture or write to reflect on your week.  What was the most fun thing you did this week?  OR...just journal, write about how you feel, what you did, what you want to do, etc.

What’s Happening in PE:   

We have stayed really, really busy in P.E. these last few weeks. We have been working on new skills like catching with a glove, hitting with a bat and throwing a Frisbee. All students worked really hard and never gave up learning these challenging skills. Please ask your students what they have learned and have them go outside and show you.


What’s Happening in Art:

Sixth Grade – Sixth grade continues to create art that represents the Human Experience. We looked at the fun, whimsical art of James Rizzi, who portrays everyday city life in New York City. We are creating a fun scene which reflects our own human experience. We also (finally) completed our crayon batik projects by dying and ironing the cloth, then mounting it to a complementary colored background.
