Welcome Back


I hope you all had restful breaks and were able to spend time with the people you love.  I was able to see both family and friends and get in some turns on all that powder we got this break!  I am so looking forward to seeing your child tomorrow in the classroom, my life has been quiet without their laughter.

Please be aware that we are hitting the ground at a full sprint now that we are back!  Please expect many updates and papers coming home the next few weeks as we pick back up after break.

I don’t want this to get buried in the month-at-a-glance. STEM WEEK IS FAST APPROACHING.  For 6th this means science fair, for 5th, this means invention convention, and for 4th it means the mousetrap car.  6th graders will be checking in with me tomorrow as to progress.  5th graders should be working through their invention convention packet independently, and the 4th graders need to bring in any supplies to make their mousetrap cars (or the completed car if they are choosing to build at home) on Monday the 7th.  We are going to start testing our builds the week of the 7th.  If you need me to help gather supplies for your child’s mousetrap car, invention, or science fair project, or need me to allow class time for the 5th and 6th graders, please let me know no later than the 4th of January.

January at-a-glance.
