This week is conference week!
This week is conference week. If you still need to schedule a conference or move your student’s conference date, please email us. Remember that this week is all minimum day and students are released at 12:00pm. For all students that are not having a conference, report cards will be sent home with students by the end of the week.
Elective forms will go home in student mailboxes this week. Please make sure they are signed and returned by Friday. Please be sure your student signs up for STEM on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday!
Science Fair has begun! PLEASE check in with your student about their project!
For the next six weeks our students will be working on their science fair projects. A packet of information went home before break outlining the project. Also, an electronic copy of the packet was attached to the March 2nd newsletter. All science fair projects will be on display at Intermediate Celebration Night on April 30th along with each student’s Young Authors book and projects from social studies.
Please read the attached letter with information about how you can help you student complete their Young Authors book. Here is a description of what your student needs to bring in so that they can bind their book:
In the past, students have enjoyed creating covers for their books. If your student would like to do this, they will need to bring 2 pieces of cardboard 8 ½ X 11 size or 9 x 12 size foam sheet(called foamies-soft/flexible) Many students like the foamies much better . They also need ½ yard of any fabric they choose for their cover. Foamies can be found at most craft stores. Each student only needs two sheets and they are sold individually. Color doesn’t matter. Here’s a link to the ones from Joann’s: https://www.joann.com/foam-
If your student does not wish to bind their book this way, they can choose to bring in 2 sheets of white card stock paper for the cover and back (good idea to send a few extra in case of mistakes). In this case the cover will have the title, the student’s name, and an illustration. We have some binding combs and a machine to bind them.
Bake Sale – Next Week 3/16-3/20
Mrs. Ave and Mrs. Connolly are holding a bake sale next week, during lunch, to raise money to offset the cost of overnight field trips. Please help by sending baked goods to the office on Monday, March 16th. If you have a child that will be eligible to go on the next outdoor ed field trip and are worried about the cost, please help by donating baked goods to this bake sale. Their goal is to raise $3,000 by the end of the year through various fundraisers. They can’t do it alone, your help is needed!
