Week of February 25th

 I hope everyone enjoyed our snow days on Thursday and Friday! It will be interesting to see if we have any more snow days this week!
The plan this week is to review on Monday and Tuesday and take the state assessment on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
We may have to keep our original testing days of Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. If this is the case we will start a new book on Friday called Growing, Growing, Growing and students will have homework over scientific notation due Monday, March 4th. Otherwise, there is no homework this week.
Please encourage your child to get enough sleep and eat well this week. I do believe this helps them be prepared for testing.
Thank you!
Mrs. Anderson
