Hi Everyone!

Happy Thursday!! I hope this newsletter finds you well! I realized at midnight that I haven't updated my website in a while. I really apologize. I utilize the Remind 101 app now a lot of the time and so I don't always remember to update this site. I will do a better job of this from now on--I promise!! In ELA right now we are finishing Unit 3. Next week we will take the CDT tests so we will not take the Unit 3 Wonders test. I can't wait to see how much progress the students have made on the CDTs since September! In Math we are beginning Chapter 7, Adding and Subtracting Fractions. This is a relatively easy chapter (until the last few lessons) so I am sure the students will do well. They all did so fantastically well on the Chapter 6 Math Test. Every single student scored a 3 on the multiple choice questions--WOW!!! I am so proud of them. Just a reminder, students should reach 50% on ST by Jan. 31 and should also be working on Reflex three times a week or more. In Social Studies we are working on the Southeast Region of the USA. Map test (and states and capitals on Friday, 1/18). Also that day will be the PJ and Bring a Thing celebration from our fundraiser participation success and 3,000 reading stickers. Students may wear PJs and bring a stuffed animal, electronic, or board game. Students may actually bring two items as an extra special treat! In Science we are working on energy. You should have heard about the Instrument project by now--it is due 1/24. I can't wait to see the students' creations! We have done a ton of energy experiments this week--fun! Check out the calendar section of the website to see an updated list of important dates. Thanks! Mrs. Schmoyer

Each Friday, I plan to post the daily homework for the coming week in this space. Please check it and contact me with any questions. I will provide a binder for each student on the first day of school. Please check out my supply page for some items I would like you to bring with you on that first day. Thank you again, in advance, for your support. The key to a successful school year is a true partnership between the teacher and the parents!
