Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you to those who were able to come out and see me last night.  If the time was inconvenient for you, merely message me through Dojo and we can work out an alternate time.  Mornings are more flexible for me but after school works with enough notice.  I trust that you’ve had a chance to look over the report card and talk it over with your child.  I hope you found the feedback useful.  Thank you for returning the slip of paper and envelope too.

Looking ahead, we have finished our novel study of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH.  Students are now working in groups designing a board game based on the book.  Materials for the game may need to be collected this weekend, FYI.  Science projects are due next week too.

I have most of the students’ writing for the magazine.  In some cases, I’ve had to fast-track students who’ve fallen behind.  This means that you may have been unable to provide any feedback to your child’s writing because I had to skip that step.  Once I mark the students’ work, all versions of the writing will be returned and you can see the process from beginning to end.  Then, I will begin the magazine’s layout and chip away at it over time.  As of now, I’m estimating early April before it’s ready for print.

Happy Family Day Weekend!
