Hello Folks,

Due to parent-teacher conferences Thursday and Friday afternoon the students will be released at 11:00A.M. I still have openings for parent teacher conferences on Thursday the 26th and Friday the 27th of October. I sent out a notice last week.

This week we have Library on Tuesday.

My friend and I attended the Fall Festival this weekend. We had a very nice time and enjoyed some good food.

Grades close this Friday and report cards will be distributed on Thursday, November 2nd.

The latest book order was placed on Thursday, the checks were sent Friday, and on Saturday I received an email stating that the order has been shipped. For those who would like to order books on line my classroom code is RMJDH.

I have decided to send home any papers whose grade is less than 70% for a parent signature. If a student does not put their name on a paper I will put it in a pile and they will have to find their missing work, if it is a graded assignment two points will be deducted.

Religion- We will continue discussing the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation.

Social Studies-We are continuing to study Chapter 3; The Age of Discovery. At some point this week the student will be assigned a “Wanted” poster for an explorer. I will create a rubric and have scheduled a period of time in the computer room for research and creation.

Science 5–I have the cars for the car design lab. We will be working on these during the beginning of the week.

Science 6 –We will continue with reading and note taking for lesson three. I would like to take the quiz by Friday of this week. The students presented their experiments this week.

ELA-The Spelling and vocabulary quizzes will be held on Tuesday.

Have a great week and look forward to meeting with you.

Mrs. Dumont
