Dear Families, 

Thank you for a wonderful school year, and this was even through a worldwide pandemic! I cannot express how happy and grateful I am to have been able to have taught your children. 

The students really seemed to have enjoyed the robotics unit. Today they finished the unit by creating a model of a robot that had the goal of moving five blocks that represented hazardous waste on a student-created site. Students will be taking the unit test and reflection on Monday and Tuesday about How the World Works. They will also be working on adding the last items of their memoir and photos of their robots to their online portfolios. They will be taking their written memoirs home on Monday as well. They will be presenting their physical memoirs to the class beginning on Monday and also finishing reading Green Glass Sea. 

We started a fun math project titled Geometricity where students use geometry to create a city of their own. They will continue the project all next week as well. We will not be having any more spelling next week. 

This Monday, May 24th, will be the last online schooling day. Chromebooks need to be turned in on Tuesday, May 25th. Please drop off the laptops and chargers to the school.
