   Field Trip coming up on October 16!! We will be going to the Youth fun! The class has already had so much background knowledge about the Revolutionary War, and this will just help develop more of a passion for Social Studies!! I have a problem though... I need drivers! I have 6 students so if you have a car that can fit 6 that would be great. Let me know if you are able to come with us. We will leave around 10:45 and return at 2:00.

Good Morning!

Hello again Parents!
  I hope you all saw the email I sent out about the Social Studies project. Your child was assigned a person in History to research and create a poster about. Details are on the assignment. It is due on Sept. 21st, so you will have plenty of time so don't wait to the last minute! This project is so fun and we will go on a 
"parade"  to show the administration and some of the younger grades. 
   We will have a short SWYK( Show What You Know) on Friday over chapters 5-8. We will review in class but the students have their pages in their binders that you can start reviewing at home. They also have their vocab. words through Ch. 8 in their binder. We have been going over these in class but any extra they can do at home is great. 
  Fall Break coming up 24-28! 

Hello Parents,
  This is one way I will be communicating with you and I want to make sure I have all subscribed and it is working. Please let me know if you receive notification of this blog. Just shoot me an email.
