When: Monday, June 1, 2015
Time: 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
One of our main priorities is to provide a comfortable and supportive transition for our students and families as you leave elementary and move to upper elementary. We are thrilled to welcome all of you as we begin this journey together. The parent orientation is for parents. Our incoming 5th grade students have a Student Orientation field trip scheduled this month to visit Warner. The 4th grade students will come to Warner with their 4th grade teacher on buses on their scheduled day.
We hope you are able to attend the Parent Orientation on June 1st and we can’t wait to meet you!

Language Arts: Much of our Language Arts time has been spent writing and typing our research books. This has turned into a HUGE project so thank you for helping out with the typing at home, if need be. As you know, there is so much time, effort, and concentration that goes into a project like this and the majority of the students have really stepped up to the plate and are giving it their all! We will be finishing up the books in the next few weeks.
Math: Graded Area and Perimeter quizzes are in Friday folders this week. We have started our Geometry unit. Throughout the unit, we will be working on lines of symmetry, types of angles, 2 dimensional shapes, measuring angles, and will also be covering perpendicular and parallel lines. There is a lot of vocabulary in this unit as well so I'm reminding the kids to make sure they not only keep good notes in their math journal but also to place corrected homework in their math folder. This will help us at test time!
Social Studies: Graded Economics tests are in Friday folders this week. We're in the midst of our last unit in Social Studies...Government and Rights and Responsibilities. We'll be working a Government lapbook and I'll be adding in some fun games and activities throughout the unit.
Science: We have an open note quiz on Monday. We reviewed with a game last week and students have everything they need to prepare for the quiz.
