Author's Celebration! and other stuff

Hopefully you received an invitation today to our Author's Celebration next Thursday (the 17th). From 8:45 until 10:15 we are meeting in small groups to share our novels, and parents, grandparents and good friends are welcome to join in the fun. The following students have volunteered to bring items for the food portion of the celebration: Sam and Matthew (fruit), Jordan (veggies), Kai and Sara (cookies), Holly and Emily (cupcakes), Hannah (pretzels and water jug), Nathan H. (chips), Josh and Riley (juice), Amanda (paper plates) and Kenzie (cups). If you are unable to bring one of these items, please just email me at so I can make a new arrangement. Thanks in advance to those of you who can send us some goodies. Some of the students are doing some last minute novel publishing, so please check in with your child this weekend and make sure he/she is ready to go for Wednesday, the last day the printing press is running! The MRTA has created a letter and have asked teachers to send it home via either email or in an envelope. In the interest of trees, if you would like to read this letter (which explains the current job action and its rationale), please email me at the above email address and I'll send it along. I don't wish to post it on the blog because some students read this blog and it is meant for parents only. Please keep on sending in the Jump Rope for Heart envelopes. Students have a week of quizzes this upcoming week: on Tuesday there is a Science chapter 6 test and a French quiz (this is 5s only), and on Thursday, a Socials vocab quiz. Enjoy the sunshine!
