Just in time…

Good Afternoon! I’m so glad the sun came out just in time for the kids to be home early to play outside.

March has been a very busy month because…

  1. The students did an EXCELLENT job on their poetry and songs program.
  2. They took 2 math tests and will take 1 more coming next week!
  3. They’ve learned a lot about the 3 types of matter and have a test coming up Friday, March 29th. (Review sheet went home today.)
  4. Finally, on Tuesday will be the end of the 3rd marking period with report cards coming home on April 8th.

Enjoy your weekend! Ms. Kaplan

Hope everyone gets a chance to get outside to play before the rain arrives.
