Dear Parents/Guardians,

I do apologize for sending last week’s letter late. This week a lot has been happening in our classroom. Yesterday I revealed to everyone what our classroom reward is going to be. I’m sure that some of you have already heard the news. We will be having a pajama and movie day on Monday the 20th. I will also be making popcorn for everyone. We will have a vote on which movie to watch that morning.

Also in this week’s Friday Folder you will be finding your student’s report card. Most students have their SBAC results from last year enclosed as well. There is also a form inside the envelope to fill out. Please make sure that you sign the envelope and send it back to school on Monday. Remember that Parent-Teacher Conferences are next Monday and Tuesday. If you haven’t signed up, and you would like to, you need to call the office to make one.

In math we are still working on finding ways to multiply double digit numbers. Everyone seems to be doing very well. The students have been very excited to be using Reflex Math on their chromebooks this week. In reading we are still looking at strategies to use when reading nonfiction books. In writing we are still working on writing fiction stories. Everyone is working on developing a character for their story. We had four winds this week in science, where we learned about the ecosystem in a fallen tree. In global citizenship we have looked at ancient Greece, religions of Greece, and modern Greece. Next week we will wrap up Greece with a game of jeopardy.

Feel free to call me (ext. 6761), email me (, or send a note if you have any questions or concerns.  I am usually at school until 5:30, you are more than welcome to call me until then. I hope you have a great weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing you for conferences.

Best Regards,

Christine Newberg
