Camping Trip Update -- May 22, 2012
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 9:40 AM

Dear Families,
I want to thank all of you for the wonderful he getting ready for Camping. This is Barton at it's "Village Raising the Children" best. I know we will have a wonderful time. I am attaching Parent Rules and Directions. Everyone is welcome to come even if you were not signed up to help. A surprise visit is perfectly acceptable. Rain Gear is a must this trip-- It does sound like we could get some rain. We have a NOAA Weather Radio with us -- but I do not anticipate any severe weather-- just a lot of water. If we do need shelter we will have access to a building. We will also have our cell phones with us although reception is sporadic.

Click here for parents' rules and more information.

Also Room 216 has scheduled our last Portfolio Day for June 5, the last day of school.
Thanks again for all your help.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012 2:55 PM

Dear Families,
I apologize for this lengthy email but PLEASE take time to read the whole thing. There is a great deal of information which may be helpful.

First of all, the MN Comprehensive Assessments begin next week. We have the reading test for 3rd and 4th grade on Tuesday 4/17 and Wednesday 4/18morning from 7:45 to 10:05. We have the MCA math test the following week on Monday 4/23 and Tuesday 4/24 at 11:15-1:15. Students can sometimes feel stressed and overwhelmed by these tests. I want our class to be as prepared and confident as possible. We had a class discussion and made some decisions. We will take stretch and snack breaks during each test. I am also including links to the MN Dept of Ed website.  Read more...

The dates are 5/23-5/26, Wed through Fri. Get the dates on your calendar so you can join us.
