As you may have noticed we have fenced the school property in preparation for upcoming building!! We are in the process of getting all our ducks in a row to start building. We are hoping to break ground the first week of June!! We are very excited and will keep you informed on our progress. We are still in negotiations with the insurance company for a settlement. I continue to appreciate ALL your patience in this process! In addition, please review your child’s school work when they bring it home, and praise them for all their hard work! Children love those positive comments!!!
May is a busy month. We'll be starting our P.E. testing this week so everyone needs to be prepared with the proper clothing and shoes. We will also be getting ready for state testing with plenty of review of our math, language arts, science and history. All students will be taking a test on our constitution with a passing mark necessary for the eighth graders as one of our graduation requirements. Another requirement is the eighth grade project that researches a career of their choice. Plenty to do, the month will go fast!
Senta & the class playing cards!!! :)

Hello TK-2 Families,

Please help them point out and identify shapes in their environments. They are EVERYWHERE!! 1st graders are working in Chapter 9, and have started the Telling Time portion of this chapter! If you have access to an analog clock, then please start helping them tell time at home. Ist grade will finish out the year on Chapter 10: Representing data. 2nd grade did a great job with Money and Time, and have moved on to Chapter 8: Standard Measurement. 2nd Grade will finish out the year with Chapter 9: Metric Measurement, and 10: Data.

All grades are working in the last unit of the curriculum. Kindergarten's theme is "Do Your Best".

This month we are moving on to the Poise and Confidence blocks of the Pyramid of Success!
Poise: "Just Be Yourself"- Don't act or pretend to be something you are not. When you are yourself and make the effort -100%- to be the best you can be, you are a success.
Confidence: "You must believe in yourself if you expect others to believe in you." - Have faith in yourself and what you can achieve. Poise and confidence are achieved when every block of the Pyramid of Success is in place.
Please look for a new Pyramid newsletter in your child's homework folder. Check out the section of ways you can support your child in achieving success in these two areas, at home.
Thank you for all you do to support us in learning and growing!!
Smiling faces in Miss Perez's class!!!
Ramping up for Finishing the School Year!
English Language Arts
Students have been learning how to read to find the author’s purpose (or reason) for composing a text. They were asked, after reading a text, their thoughts on a text and to guess the purpose, if they really don’t know, why the author wrote a particular piece. At first, there was awkward silence because they weren’t certain what I was asking. After a few practices, they got the hang of it and began to really grasp this aspect of English Language Arts.
For the month of May, students will be practicing with comparing sources of information on the American Revolution, and then writing about what they have learned from the sources available.
Students delved deeply in the American Revolution through reading about it, building a timeline to show the beginnings of colonies to the conclusion of the American Revolution, and finally writing opinion/informational pieces.
Student of the Month
For the month of April, the Pyramid of Success character trait was Team Spirit. The student who exhibited these traits the most consistently was Aubrey Molohon.

TK/K News from Miss Jenna
We have been learning about what kinds of foods come from plants! Encourage your student to share with you what they have learned! The students participated in a fun activity where they had the chance to make dough and fairy bread!
Please make sure that your child is bringing a backpack each and every day because there might be information that needs to get sent home.
Wishing you the best!

Open House is on May 23rd , and packets for both the June summer camp and ASP enrollment for the next school year will be available. Please turn in both forms ASAP as both programs are first come first served. As a friendly reminder, please do not let your student bring toys or other items to ASP. Students may play with the toys they receive at Student Store on Fridays.
We have been doing lots of fun activities in ASP lately! Such as a minute-to-win it game where you have to put a cookie on your forehead and get it to your mouth, only using your face! They all loved it and got to enjoy some yummy cookies. ASP has also been taking advantage of the beautiful weather and encouraging physical activity, healthy choices, and behaviors by playing games such as Musical Hoops. Ask your child about it I’m sure they would love to tell you about it.
