Thanks for checking the blog!  We have been excitedly working on projects to share with you during our Parent Open House Night (which will be a week from today from 6-7:30, or if you’ve already been to one for another child in another grade, 6:30-7:30)!  The students are hard at work at their very first persuasive paper (a big deal in 5th grade due to the DWA test!), and creating an organism packed with incredible specialized structures to survive on Planet Wakynabi!  🙂  I am looking forward to seeing you there next week!!
I’ve also updated some other upcoming events below, so be sure to check it out! Thanks!

1) Math: (3-1) p. 47 all, p. 48 odds.  Also, please redo low-scoring quizzes and the Unit 2 test that is going home today!  Finally, after sharing it with your parents (and redoing it if needed), please bring back your Unit 2 tests so we can put them in your portfolios!
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 
3) Missing Work Reports: If you got a missing work report, you need to get it signed by your parents and return it tomorrow to earn Friday Fun!
