Happy Long Weekend!

Hello, everyone! I have just a few quick updates…

There will be no spelling this week. It’s a great opportunity to add more minutes to the January reading calendar!

Please remember that we do not have school on Monday and Friday (1/25) is an early dismissal.

With the change in the semester, also comes a change in our specials. We will no longer have Library Instruction, but instead will have applied engineering with Mr. Andrew. We will still have book exchange every other Day A.

Did you get the chance to look in your child’s Friday folder? It is packed with hard work!! Please empty and return the folder on Tuesday.

Thank you for your continued support! Please never hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns. (or good news!)

Enjoy the extra long weekend!

1/25 Early Dismissal – AM-K 9-1:30, PM-K No School

AM Kindergartners will have school on Friday from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm.  This also means that PM Kindergarten students will NOT have school.  Your child will ride the bus to school in the morning and home from school at dismissal.  If you plan to pick your child up from school, please be sure to send a note to school so we are aware of the change.

Kindergartners will eat lunch at school.  Lunch costs $2.35.  If your child would like to pack a lunch and buy milk, the cost is $.60 for milk.  Below are the choices for lunch.  We have limited the selections to help get the students through the lunch line in a timely manner.  *Please put the money for your child’s lunch in an envelope or baggie marked with his or her name and lunch choice.  Please note that if your child receives free or reduced lunches, you should have been notified so plan accordingly when sending money to school (i.e. reduced lunch is $ .40).  You may send your child’s money to school prior to the date of the early dismissal if that is easier for you.  If you have any questions, please let me know!  Thank you!

  • A lunch: Italian Cheese Pizza
  • B lunch: Hot Dog on a Bun
  • All lunch choices also come with the following: Steamed Broccoli, Romaine Lettuce Salad, Assorted Fruit, and Choice of Milk

Winter Formal Rescheduled

Dr. Gale has decided it is best to reschedule the Winter Formal. It will now be held on Saturday, Jan. 26th from 7-10pm. I understand that there may be some students who are no longer able to attend. This may also mean more students can attend. Therefore we must continue to have tickets sales/refunds during lunches this upcoming week. Please visit our googledoc to sign up to cover lunches this week. One or two students is fine, please take a turn!! Also, update the googledoc if you can now help decorate or take your name off if you can no longer help. Thanks for everything you have done already. We are going to havea great amount to donate to charities!! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1A-nJdj8m5RTH-4m2YxShv3_MKp07wBMq03tqgYj37pw/edit?usp=sharing

Mr. Mattern's Sixth Grade

Third Marking Period

It is hard to believe, but yesterday was the final day of the second marking period.  This means that we are half way through our sixth grade year!

We are currently wrapping up our spy unit in reading.  The students took a multiple choice test yesterday, and they will complete the TDA next week.  After finishing the text dependent analysis question, both classes will start a new novel entitled, Nothing But The Truth.  We will be focusing on examining purpose in reading during the third marking period. 

In writing during the upcoming marking period, we will focus on specific grammar skills including proper pronoun usage, subject-verb agreement, prepositions, comma usage, and identifying sentence fragments and run-ons.

Mr. Schettler will be taking a deep dive into algebra concepts during the third quarter.  Students will be writing expressions and solving equations.  They will also be studying geometry and reviewing concepts from the first half of the year.

In the content areas, students will travel back in time to study the immigration process, and they will be completing a biology unit.

Enjoy the weekend, and stay safe in the snow and ice!

Here are a couple of dates to look out for:

Jump Rope for heart assembly January 23

Yearbook order Form or Online January 28

January Book Order January 31

Snacks and Dodgeball January 30

Snacks and Dodgeball

The students did an excellent job and hit their goals for December. On January 30th we are going to head to the gym for a couple rounds of dodgeball. After dodgeball, we are going to have a snack together. I will be providing drinks. Students are encouraged to bring in their favorite snack to share with their classmates.

End of the Marking Period

We are finished with marking period 2. The students were amazed yesterday when I said they were halfway through 3rd grade! The report cards will be coming home February 1st. When you are looking at the comments, I will write a glow and a grow. The glow will have something to do with academics, attitude, and social and work habits. The grow will be a challenge for third marking period. If you have any questions about the comments on the report card, please feel free to email me at kim.garvey@pennmanor.net.

Topics Coming up!

In third marking period we are looking a lot of different topics to learn and master. In math we will be moving from Algebra to fractions. In Reading we will be comparing two types of literature and finishing our novel. In writing, we will be writing a restaurant review. The students will pick their favorite restaurant and write a persuasive review. In social studies we will be learning some Lancaster County history! It will be a great 9 weeks!

Enrichment

Students work on an online program called Moby Max. If you are looking for extra reading and math work for your child to do, Moby Max is a great way to do it. Students are already leveled in math. We will take some time next week for students to take they reading test in Moby Max. Most students have already completed it. Moby Max will level the student as they answer the questions in the assessment and then they will be given skills at their level. This program is K-8 skill program so your student will have chances to grow. Students know their user name and password and this can be accessed on any device that has internet.

If you are in need of a school-issued sign, please let us know so we can make a new one for you. Mrs. Martin will check identification if proper signage is not displayed.

Math Information

Chapter 8 Math Tests will be returned today. This was a difficult test on fraction concepts. I did allow students to use their Ch. 8 Math Review packet and homework to help them as they took this test. Prior to the test, I had worked through the math review with the students following along. If students were following along with me, and were copying down my notes and math work, this would have been very helpful for them to refer to as they took the test. However, even with it being an open-note test, some of the scores were really low. Students always have an opportunity to do test corrections after each math test. Ch. 8 test corrections are due on Wednesday, Jan. 23rd. Test corrections provide students with an opportunity to have a better understanding of the math concepts and can also help improve a test grade. Thank you for your support!

I hope you all had a wonderful week! We have been working hard this week! 🙂

Math- We have finished up Chapter 4 and just started Chapter 5! Today we learned about tens. I was SO excited about how amazing everyone did on their Chapter 5 test- wahoo!

Writing- We started a Penguin unit! We read a nonfiction book about penguins, and brainstormed facts about penguins. The students have been working on their graphic organizer. We will soon be writing our rough copy. Yay!

Content- We have been learning about our country, state, continents and oceans. Feel free to ask your kiddo about any of those facts! 🙂 Tomorrow, we will be writing about where we would want to be if we could be anywhere in the world.

Martin Luther King JR- We have been working on a folder with lots of MLK JR facts. The students have REALLY enjoyed learning about Dr. King. We are looking forward to showing you our finished project in a couple days! 🙂

Reading- I was able to take a day on Wednesday and read with your child one-on-one. I cannot tell you how proud I am of each child in this classroom! We have been learning how to respond to questions about our stories. Tonight, everyone has reading AND writing homework. 🙂

Tomorrow- Thursday, January 17- Day C… We have Art!

*Just a reminder that we do NOT have school on Friday, January 18th or Monday, January 21st.

AM Buddy Class Game Day

A little late in posting! We had so much fun learning our new games with our 6th grade buddies. We learned how to play, how to win and lose, and how to clean up and take care of our games! The afternoon class did the same, but I needed to leave unexpectedly to get my daughter to doctor’s appointment. I assure you, they had a blast as well! Thank you for all of the great games for our classroom!

Ms. Kyper's Kindergarten Class

UPPER CASE LETTERS

We have begun learning our upper case letters. So far we have finished A and B. We will always practice writing these on white boards in school. When there is time we will start the work sheets in school. If there is not time worksheets will be sent home to complete.

I am hoping to send home a calendar tomorrow and the newsletter by the end of the week.

Are you ready for more snow???? Ready or not here it comes.

Reminders for the Week

It’s hard to believe we’re half-way through January already!

Here are some reminders for this week:

There is no school for students on Friday 1/18 or Monday 1/21.

Friday 1/25 is an early dismissal day.

There is no spelling, vocab, or comprehension test this week. We will be taking a test on plot tomorrow. As your child is reading tonight, talk to them about the characters, setting, problem, solution, and major events in their story. This will help them prepare for the test. Next week we will start lesson 16. We will return to our normal schedule for reading on Tues of next week.

Cereal

Which types of cereal are attracted to a magnet?

On Thursday, we are going to test different types of cereal to see if they are attracted to a magnet. We could use your help to get as many different kinds of cereal as possible to test. Please send in a small baggie of any type of cereal that you have in your kitchen cabinet.

Thank you for your help!h
