Happy May! It is definitely my favorite month of the year. This week we are finishing up some review for science and we are going to do some writing. Our class picture is May 1. The next week we have some important dates to remember: May 8 math STAAR retest, May 9 reading STAAR retest, May 10 science STAAR test, May 11 last spelling test, and May 12 our field trip to the park and GForce. Remember we need all permission slips, waivers, and money turned in by May 5. The spelling list is below.

We love 4 day weeks! This week we will be reviewing math and writing letters in language arts. We are expecting to receive STAAR results on Tuesday and we will notify the students of the results that afternoon. If your student did not pass one or both of the tests, we will start intense remediation and tutoring on Wednesday to prepare them for the second administration. Please remember that one test score does not define who your child is at all. If your student passed, they will continue with their regular schedule with an emphasis on getting them ready for the science STAAR. The list of spelling words is below. The test will be April 27.

This is a short week for us. On Monday and Tuesday we are going to do a math assignment that will cover almost everything we have learned this year. On Wednesday we will have our spelling test and then write the 4th graders a letter about what to expect in 5th grade. That afternoon, we are going to watch Max since they have read the book. Thursday is our Easter party. It is from 9:30-10:30 on the football field. We still need parents to put out eggs and provide either cans of soda or Little Debbie snacks. Please let us know if you can provide. Students need to bring their egg carton with filled and taped plastic eggs by April 12. You will be able to check your student out after the party. Friday and then the next Monday are school holidays so enjoy your time off. We pray you have a blessed Easter weekend.
Congratulations 5th grade! You survived your first round of STAAR tests. We should have results the week after Easter and will let you know as soon as we hear. Science STAAR will be in May so we will be working hard to prepare for that. This week we will be doing some review in math so that we are ready for 6th grade. We are starting a great project in language arts that is based off the website Humans of New York. We are doing a Humans of 5th grade writing assignment and you will love seeing what your student writes about himself. Be looking for information about the Easter party and field trip to come home in the next few days. Our next spelling test is April 13. The words are listed below.

The week we have been working toward is finally here. STAAR math will be Tuesday and STAAR reading is Wednesday. Make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep, eats a good breakfast, and brings a book. Your student has worked hard and will be fine. Please take a deep breath and trust that they will do their best. Remember that one test does not define your student. We will have a spelling test on Thursday.
