What's Happening In Your Grade in April

Spring is here! FIRST GRADERS are excited for the warm weather. We will be discussing Spring and the kind of weather we will need for the May flowers. We will also study plants and seeds. We are continuing to be readers, writers, and active learners. They are challenged to solve everyday problems and explore how they reach a solution. April will help them fine tune their skills!

SECOND GRADERS are on the move! We are getting ready for field trips. Each track will be going to visit the Energy Solutions Area and the Clarke Planetarium. It is an all day field trip and teacher's will be asking for help. Every child will need to bring a cold lunch brought or get one from the cafeteria. Track D will be going on April 6; Track B, April 16; Track C, April 28; and Track A, May 5. Other events happening in our classrooms are Dare presentations and a Rainforest Presentation. On May 4, our students will be going on a farm fieldtrip. We would will like to thank Clay and Sharon Butterfield for their support in this endeavor.

THIRD GRADE has a riddle for you: If April showers bring May flowers, then what do Mayflowers bring? The answer is Pilgrims! The 3rd grade is having a great time learning about professions and how to wisely spend their money at "Kids Marketplace." Many students completed their "Treasure Books" and are excited to share their hard work with others! Good job on getting your own book published! We have also been learning how to use the laptops and are getting ready for the CRT that starts in May. B trackers are the first ones that get to test, so make sure to get some rest so that you can do your best:)

April 27th, 4th graders will be going to listen to the Utah Symphony
Please be at school for testing
Recorders should be practiced every day
Information on county reports will be shared
Listen in class as we review for testing

FIFTH GRADERS are having fun learning about all kinds of things! We are learning about heredity in Science and the Civil War in Social Studies. The kids (and teachers) are ready for spring! We can't wait for our softball season to begin! We have been working hard on fractions in math...adding, subtracting, and multiplying them! We are getting very smart! It's hard to believe the school year is almost over!

SIXTH GRADE It was great to meet with parents again for Parent/Teacher Conferences. We thank you for your dedication and follow through on the goals your child has set for third term. We want students to finish the year strong with good study habits to carry with them into middle school! We've focused on math, reading, and science to prepare them for the CRT Tests, which are very high stakes testing for your child. Make sure you know the testing windows so your child will be in attendance and prepared to do their best. We enjoy working with your children and appreciate all the support you give us!
