Magnificent Monday!

We will also be having our next math test on Thursday. 

Attention all parents and students: We are having our Spring Fundraiser to raise funds to support our Science and Physical Education Program! There will be a variety of exciting EVENTS with a number of amazing PRIZES for students to win through their participation!

Some of the big events to make note of for THIS week are:

April 19th: Pancake Breakfast

April 21st: Sundae Fun Day!

April 22: SJA Dance Party with Delicious Treats!!!

What an exciting week!!


A Pledge form went home in efforts to renovate the school’s science lab and PE program. We kindly ask that all donations be turned in by Thursday, April 28th, 2016. All students who collect a minimum donation amount of $35.00 will be treated to a bowling party on April 29th!

Prizes can also be won for students who raise money! Grand prizes include a movie and pizza party; this is for the class that raises the most money!

We began the day writing our homework in our agendas and then our spelling words for the week.

We then had physical education with Mr. Slyk.

We then continued our measurement unit. Students found four objects to measure. Students used their ruler to measure each object. Students then graphed their information and then listed their objects from shortest to longest. Students then continued practicing using their rulers, ensuring to start at 0.

After first recess and lunch, we dove into our new UOI unit. We will be learning about how we can help protect and save our planet. We will learn various ways we can reuse, reduce, and recycle. We will explore conservation strategies such as using less electricity and water. We also read a book about Earth day (April 22) and then did a brainstorm about ways we can help our planet.

Students then worked on their unit 26 Spelling words.

After second recess and lunch we read chapter 5 of Flat Stanley’s Ninja Surprise. Oda Nubu wanted to show Stanley that he was sorry for using him as a party trick by taking a trip around Japan together. They both went on a bullet train where they had a serious conversation about Oda Nobu. He admitted that he does not really know karate, even though in his movies he comes across as a karate master. He told Stanley that he has a stunt double who does all his action scenes. As a child, he really wanted to be a karate master but instead he became an actor. He went on to say that an actor is what he is but now who he is. He went on to that being thin is what Stanley is but not who is, which is a creative, funny, and unique child.
