We hope you are all had an enjoyable weekend. We have had a busy week last week with students challenging themselves with new math lessons and a lot of writing of short stories and students writing about some of their favorite things. Third graders were also invited to the Upper Elementary for some informal writing lessons with Ms. Nicole. Other highlights were a lesson with Ms. Mary about erosion using the information students learned previously about rivers and its parts and learning about bacteria and other microscopic living things with Mr. Ben.
This week was our first library trip. Students teamed up and did a scavenger hunt to find books in both the children’s section and the non-fiction section of the Sammamish Library. It went really well and students got to talk to the librarians to help them find books and using the card catalog on the computer. Also, this week students have been getting letter from their Kindergarten buddies and have been inviting them to have lunch with them or read some of their favorite books together.
This is a quick reminder that Progress Reports will be emailed to you on this Thursday afternoon, February 4th. If you would like a hard copy sent home on Thursday, please let us know and we can get one ready for you in your child’s folder. School will be closed on Friday, February 5th for conferences. These conferences will be just between parents and teachers, the students do not need to come.
