Publishing Party!

Families! Please join us tomorrow from 2:40- 2:55 for a celebration of our hard work telling true narratives! We will be showing off our skills in room 909 and hope you can join us! 

Homework tonight- our class chose to talk today through the science lesson and as a result they are required to complete page 5 pictured above. They are not required to complete the whole packet. If they only have one paper it is because they have lost their packet. 
We have a math test tomorrow, I strongly suggest they complete their math as a review.
Thank you for your support!
We went to the school library today! Please take care of your books! We will return books in two weeks, November 15th.
Thank you!
