A Few Reminders

Hi Fifth Graders,

Great job with the dress rehearsal of the Wax Museum today!  Your speeches and costumes were amazing.  I am excited for the rest of the school your families to see it on Wednesday!

Here are a few reminders for the week:

*Your costumes, speeches, signs, and on/off switches should stay at school until Wednesday.  Speeches can go home only to practice, they MUST come back Wednesday.

*Your March Reading Letters are due Monday, March 31st.  If you want extra credit, they should be turned in by Friday, March 21st, and please write your name on the board if it's finished before spring break.

*If you are leaving early for break, please be sure to let me and your math teachers know.  We will try to get work together for you before you leave.

*Portfolios will go home on Wednesday (unless tomorrow is your last day, then it will go home tomorrow).  Remember you need to read through the portfolio with your parents and then fill out the top orange sheet to bring back to me.  That sheet is due Friday, April 4th, the Friday we come back from break.  The 2nd page are reminders for your parents for the remainder of the year.

*Mrs. Polito closed round one of voting for the March Madness of books.  Round 2 will open tomorrow morning for anyone who wants to vote.  Use the same website to get to the voting spot!  Remember to only vote once per round!!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the rest of this week or the weeks after spring break.  Four more days until we get a little time off.  We have a lot of work still to do, so let's make these days productive!
