Just a reminder that Tuesday is Physical Fun Day. Students will be participating in physical activities – most of which are outside. Students will need to wear sneakers and comfortable clothing. Currently, there is no rain in the forecast for that day. We’ll cross our fingers that it stays that way!! If it does rain, the rain date will be Tuesday, May 28.

Week of May 20th

Dear Families,

          Our field trip to the Lancaster Science Factory and Musser Park is on Tuesday. We are asking that all second graders bring a bagged lunch with a throw away water bottle for lunch. Bags should be labeled with name and class and should be able to be thrown away after eating. We are looking forward to a great day as we wind down our days of being second graders!

          Our Olympic Day is now on Wednesday and students should try to wear a gray shirt to support Team Kyle. Plastic water bottles labeled with names on may also come in for our “Sharpen the Saw Day.”

          Have a wonderful week and please let me know if you have any questions as our schedule is a busy one!

Sixth Grade Graduation

It is hard to believe, but the end of sixth grade is right around the corner.  We will be celebrating our students with an assembly and slideshow on Wednesday, May 29th.  The assembly will be held in the gym at Conestoga Elementary and will begin at 1:45 pm.

At the end of the assembly, the students will return to the classroom and gather their items for the pool party.  From our classrooms, Mr. Schettler and I will walk the students over to the Conestoga Pool for an afternoon of fun our students certainly earned.

A big thank you to all the parents who helped to organize the assembly and pool party!

We are looking forward to a great last few weeks of school!

End of School Year Google Classroom Cleanup

Click on the link to learn how to easily cleanup your Google Classroom for the end of the year.

  1. It is important to return all student work when students press the turn in button document ownership is transferred to the teacher- Your students have worked hard on their Google Classroom assignments. You need to make sure to return their digital work, just as if it was a paper that they turned into you. When you return their work it transfers the ownership of the files back to the student.
  2. Archive your classroom, do not remove or unenroll students. Don’t attempt to keep this year’s Google Classroom, unenroll the current students and then add next years students in the fall. This might seem like an easy way to keep your classroom organized, but there is a much better method. Archiving your Google Classroom still allows you to use any posts that you create in another Google Classroom. You can start your Google Classroom fresh for the next year. You can use assignments you have posted in the past quickly and easily. This also gives you the opportunity to rethink the assignment. Do you want to do the same thing you did the previous year of do you want to change it up a bit?

Concert Reminder

Just a reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday) is the concert! Students are encouraged to attend to show off all they have practiced in music this semester. It begins at 6 PM. Students are being asked to wear something they feel good wearing but also keep in mind that it gets warm on the stage.

Tomorrow will be a whole-group rehearsal during our special time. Students should bring their recorders to school tomorrow. We have music anyway, so students should have them. Also, many students keep them in our classroom so that they don’t forget them for music class. Tomorrow they will need to bring them home because this classroom will be locked at the time of the concert. They will not be able to get in to get it. Unfortunately, I have an appointment and will not be able to make the concert. I wish everyone the best of luck!

Hero Fair!

Yesterday we finally finished conferencing Hero Fair rough drafts! Wahoo! Today all students finished turning in their final drafts. I made a copy of each student’s final draft and gave it to him/her as it was finished. At this point, every student should have a copy of the final draft in order to be able to work on the poster. If you don’t, please let me know ASAP.

Just a reminder – Posters are due Monday 5/21 (some paperwork said Tuesday, so it will be ok if it comes in on Tuesday instead). You may send the poster to school as soon as you are finished. Please see the handout that came home for the expectations. Students should be able to talk about their hero. They don’t have to have all the details memorized, but should have a general idea about why their hero is important and his/her accomplishments. Students will be giving a short presentation to their classmates where they will be asked to talk about their hero.

The Hero Fair will take place on Friday, May 24 from 2:00-3:15. Parents are welcome to attend. It’s really cool to see all the hard work that went into these projects!
