We are finishing our counties project this week.  We will work on it for thirty minutes each day, Monday through Wednesday.  The project is due Thursday and will be presented in class.  Students have been instructed to work on their projects at home if they feel they cannot complete it in the 1.5 hours devoted to it in class this week.  Please followup with your student about this project.

​This week we are studying the patterns of the earth's surface (think plate tectonics, volcanoes, landforms, earthquakes, etc.).  We will have a test towards the end of next week.
 
The Leader in Me:
Our school will be learning leadership skills throughout the year using The Leader in Me Leadership Guide.   We believe all students have important strengths to share, and we will be learning about ways to develop and share those strengths.  Part of The Leader in Me involves learning about The 7 Habits of Happy Kids.  There will be a section in each weekly newsletter briefly explaining what we are talking about in class with some questions you can ask and discuss with your child.  From time to time, your child will bring home assignments or questions about leadership.  You are encouraged to make best use of these opportunities and look for ways to apply the skills at home.  The greatest help will be for you to learn and model the leadership principles.  To learn more, visit www.theleaderinme,org.  We look forward to your encouragement and support!
