Happy September!

It’s September and we have new things happening with the Szentesy Squad!

This week begins our Spelling lessons. The students will receive a pretest on Tuesday (usually a Monday), they have the week to complete a packet, and the test is given on Friday. Look for the green list to come home so you can practice, practice, practice!

We have begun our first unit of the year in ELA. The boys and girls enjoyed reviewing Story Elements and reading “The Hot and Cold Summer.” Vocabulary lists should have come home last week (pact, queasy, annoyed, foisted, etc.)

This week the students will take their first math test of the year. We will have an extensive practice test on Thursday. Students will be able to study that for Friday’s test. As in the past, students are encouraged to complete test corrections for the problems they mark incorrectly. This greatly helps students to understand their mistakes and grow from them (not to mention, receiving extra points to help their grade!)

Content will begin this week with a science unit on Biology!

Library Book Exchange will take place this week. Thank you Mrs. Etzweiler!

It was lovely to meet so many families on Thursday evening. I look forward to a successful year working together to help your child grow!

Last but DEFINITELY not least…..this Thursday night is Rita’s Night! Hambright students can receive a free slushy between 6:00 and 8:00 pm. Miss Szentesy and friends will be serving from 6:00-6:30. Hope to see you there! Be sure to thank the PTO for putting together a great back-to-school gathering for our Hambright Leaders!
