End-of-Year Update ~ 5/23/18

Hello Parents,
*I always panic this time of year - so much to do!! The most difficult unit to complete between now and portfolio share on June 6th will be our Greek mythology inspired quest stories.  The stories can be typed or hand written, comic book style or paragraph style, however students wish to write them. Many expressed an interest in working on them at home today when we were brainstorming ways to make finishing this project easier. Please ask your student if they would like to work on their story at home between now and June 5th!
*Our plant sale pizza lunch will be this Friday. (Finding pizza delivery at 10:15am during our normal lunchtime would be very difficult. Scheduling our pizza lunch during swim week makes more sense because we don’t eat lunch until 11:45am). Each student will get two slices of pizza. Feel free to send a drink to school as well as a fruit or vegetable. We will schedule our plant sale ice cream treat for sometime next week.
*The last three permission slips for the year will be sent home tomorrow: Lake Day June 6, Crystal Cave June 7 and Como Zoo June 8
*I asked the teacher who will be replacing me at Barton, Melissa Favero from Burroughs, to come to our portfolio share to meet the 3rd graders and their parents. She is able to come from 7:45 to 8:15 that morning.
* I’m sure I am forgetting something…

Thank you as always,

Dear Parents,
I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy this beautiful weekend!
Tomorrow is our last day to review for the MCA math tests. We will be testing Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Students who do not compete their tests can finish on Thursday morning. The tests are not timed. I will provide snacks again on testing days.
Once the MCAs are done, we are getting out of the classroom! We have several field trips lined up:
May 4th - Ordway
May 8th Agriculture Day at the State Fair Grounds
Permission slips have been sent home for these two trips

May 15th Minneapolis Institute of Arts self-guided tour
May 22-25 swimming at the Blaisdell YMCA
June 6th Lake Day
June 7th Crystal Cave
June 8th Como Zoo

The MIA and Como Zoo are the most fun with small groups, so I will be hoping for six chaperones for each of those trips. I have not yet heard anything about volunteers for Lake Day, but that information should be getting to teachers soon.
Thank you for all your support!

Hi Parents,
I have a few things to share with you:

1) Pizza Hut “Book It!” Calendars are due tomorrow. I will hand out the certificates and new calendars for March.

2) A permission slip was sent home today for Orchestra Hall. The field trip is next Thursday.

3) Today we made a schedule for artist report presentations. The class decided that the art part should be brought to school on the day the report was shared. (So only five students need to have their art at school tomorrow.) Here is the schedule:

March 1st - Lily, Fritz, Leah, Adi and Destiny

March 2nd - Meg, Lila, Maddie, Ben, Sam

March 5th - Penelope, Ezra, Johanna, Malcolm, Abdullahi

March 6th - Liam, Mohamed, Najma, Zunairah, Leif

March 7th - Hodan, Avery, Yohannes

Thank you for all your help with this project. I hope it was fun!
