We’ll be wrapping up Chapter 11 in my math class (Graphs and Probability) next week. We will be covering Lessons 1, 3, and 4, as well as some problem solving in this chapter, but will skip the other lessons. The test is adjusted to match which lessons we cover and which we skip. The test is scheduled for Wednesday, April 17.
Students with numbers 1-12 have their next reading response letters due Friday, April 19th. Vlogs for students 13-24 will be due on Friday, April 19th. Students can post under Vlog 8. The directions, topic choices, and rubric for assessing them can be found here. Because both of these assignments are submitted online, students do not need to finish them before the long weekend begins.
Miss Feck (Mrs. Eggert’s sister!) came to visit us this week to share about the Animal House Shelter in Huntley. This year’s fifth grade service project will be supporting Animal House. Next week, students will begin preparations for the collection; we’ll be collecting items for Animal House the week of April 22nd.
Wagon trains were formed and are ready to head out on the Hacker Trail in our Pioneers simulation. Challenge project options were posted to Edmodo or can be found here. These are optional projects that students may complete, but points earned from these projects will help wagon trains move more quickly on the Hacker Trail. Students may complete multiple projects if they wish.
World of Work permission slips were sent home in students’ Friday folders last week. Please return those permission slips as soon as possible. Be sure to indicate your child’s preference for lunch that day on the form. If you are able to chaperone, please let us know on the permission slip, as well. If you’ve already turned in your slip but are now able to chaperone, please email me. We’re in need of several more chaperones at this point. This field trip requires many chaperones, so all available volunteers will be invited to chaperone.
SD25 Middle Schools are kicking off their 2019 Summer Reading Program, "Reach For the Stars," this month. Current 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students are expected to read one book from this year's list, but we are hoping students will choose to read several! Students will be previewing the books and learning about the summer reading program on April 18 when Mrs. O'Kelly from the South LMC visits their classrooms. You can take a look at the list and find out more information here. Books can be purchased through SMS using this order form. All forms are due to your home school's LMC by 5/1/2019 and books will be delivered to students before summer break. Books can also be found at your public library or on Amazon.
