Short Week- September 7th

Happy Labor Day!

I hope everyone enjoys their 3 day weekend. Mrs. DeBono has great plans that include lots of sleep and pleasure reading! Hence why, it's Friday night and the blog is being updated for next week already.

Please note that this upcoming short week is Benchmark 1 testing. Students, it's time to SHOW WHAT YOU KNOW!! Please keep in mind that early bedtimes, healthy breakfasts and positive encouragement are great test-taking strategies for success. I cannot wait to see the growth of the students in just these few first weeks of school.

Because of testing, our curriculum is not regularly what you see during the week. Below is our testing week homework. There are no spelling words or a P.O.W. this week.

Tuesday- Complete the 10 question reading review packet. Read for 20 minutes.
Wednesday- Complete the 10 question math review packet. Read for 20 minutes.
Thursday- Creative writing assignment and cursive practice. Read for 20 minutes.
Friday- None
