Weekly News 1/21-1/24

This week we will begin our social studies unit on Cultural Awareness. This unit includes a home project which is a “Who Am I?” poster where we look at ourselves as individuals (information about this will be coming home this week). The students will need to create a poster that tells who they are. Information can include any languages spoken by the family, ways you celebrate holidays or birthdays, special foods your family eats/makes, special talents/hobbies that make your family unique…or anything else that fits your unique family! Many examples will be shared with the students which will hopefully allow them to begin brainstorming. We do understand that each family is different, and these differences truly make each child special and unique. While there are certain requirements for the poster, each family can take it in the direction that fits their family. This Who Am I? poster is due Tuesday, February 4.

This week:

  • Monday, Jan. 20: – Martin Luther King Day No School
  • Tuesday, Jan. 21: Day A – Family Interview paper due, “Who Am I?” home project sent home today

Weekly Update 12/16-12/20

Next week Central Manor students will have the option to participate in some fun holiday spirit days.  Please see below for the activities.  Participation is of course optional! As we enter our last week of school this calendar year, we would like to thank all of you for sharing your children with us every day.  We feel very blessed to be their teachers this school year! Enjoy the magic of the season!!!!

  • Monday, December 16: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer-Wear red and green!
  • Tuesday, December 17: Jingle Bells-Wear you favorite holiday bling!
  • Wednesday, December 18: Deck the Halls-Wear a festive sweater!
  • Thursday, December 19: Silent Night-Wear pajamas!
  • Friday, December 20: Home for the Holidays: Wear your favorite hat!

This week will mark the end of our daily multiplication tests. Students may still continue to take tests if they are motivated to do so, they will just need to work out time with their teacher to take the test. We are proud of the students who worked so hard to memorize their facts. What a huge accomplishment!

Is your child interested in participating in the Envirothon? Our students have a unique opportunity to be a part of Central Manor’s third grade Envirothon team.  The Lancaster County Junior Envirothon is an environmental knowledge challenge designed for students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6.  Students compete in grade level teams of 5 students to demonstrate their understanding of four learning topics including trees, mammals, birds, and an ecology focus group.  Many children are interested in being on the team so we will have a test to decide who qualifies for our 3rd grade team.  Students who are interested should study the pre-test packet and prepare for the testwhen we return from the holiday break.  Please note:  the Envirothon is a fun opportunity, however, it does take hard work and studying outside of the classroom.  Students should make sure they are prepared for the time commitment. If there are any parents who would be interested in coaching a pretty awesome group of 3rd graders so we are able to have a third grade team, please contact your child’s classroom teacher or Megan Smith in the office. Thank you for considering! This week:

Chapter 8 Math Test

Happy Wednesday! Just a friendly reminder that chapter 8 math tests will be coming home today. This test was extremely challenging and scores were lower than normal. With that being said we are encouraging students to take the time to make test corrections to not only learn from mistakes they made, but to raise their overall grade. Corrections will be due by Friday, December 13. Thank you as always for your continued support!
