Boosterthon

Thank you for your support thus far in our Boosterthon initiative! We are well on our way to our school goal of $15,000! Funds raised during Boosterthon will directly support the Playworks recess program for our K-5 scholars for the 2018-19 school year. Playworks creates a place for every student on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. Through a combination of recess monitor training, explicit instruction in the classrooms, and inclusive games at recess, Playworks help to build a culture of play that enables kids to feel a real sense of belonging and have the opportunity to contribute on the playground, in the classroom, and into their communities. Studies have shown Playworks to increase safety, inclusion, and empowerment for students during recess, thus decreasing behavior incidents on the playground and increasing time focused on learning in the classroom. We are looking forward to partnering with Playworks next year!

Ancient Rome

We have entered our unit on Ancient Rome.  All students present for class today, Monday, April 26, received their new books, The Story of Ancient Rome.  Please remind your fifth grader to carry the book in a zip-lock bag for protection, so future students can enjoy reading a well-preserved copy.  As always, I encourage parents to look over the books for your own appreciation of that era.
