On Monday Patricia will be joining our class IF Wendell's Warriors can raise 1,000 gold pieces. Good luck, students!
December was a JOY in 5th grade. We finished all of our classwork for 2018 and got to celebrate. Our white elephant gift exchange was exciting to experience. The gingerbread houses were sticky and adorable to make with our buddies. We also managed to get the first edition of our class newsletter hot off the press at 3:05 PM. A big thank you goes to our photographer/ main writer who was determined to have it complete. I am beyond blessed to have such a top notch group of kids to work with each day! They were even understanding when Dunkin' Donuts was too busy to fill our order and I had to cancel our Pulse Leadership Group meeting.
Our newest newsletters from the class and Lincoln are below. Enjoy!
It's important to be yourself in life, unless you can be a Mush. Then always be a Mush!
A little Throwback Thursday action for you:
It has been a really busy several weeks at RCAA. We are staying warm and plugging through. Our Avon fundraiser could have gone better, but we did have a few big sellers to carry the rest of our team.
Parent teacher conferences went well. For those I have to reschedule, I sent a note home with your student yesterday. I will be doing make-up conferences on Tuesday night.
Well, we were starving, anyway. For some reason our lunch person never showed up. Because we were so busy with MAP testing, nobody noticed until we went to the Cafeteria to find it empty. OOPS!
Olivia's mom was to the rescue with Pizza Hut. It was a delicious solution! We survived and were back on schedule with only a 15 minute delay. RCAA students know how to roll with it.
The pancake breakfast was a success, as was Reading MAP testing. Mrs. Watson, our new advisor, just walked in the building to meet with students. It is exciting for a Tuesday around this place!
Rough day. Educational, but sad. Our little Pan Solo (chick that started to hatch yesterday) went to class pet heaven within an hour of being born. We were so excited with the video camera filming everything, then it was like--- Uh-oh. . .
Katherine insisted on re-purposing a Popsicle stick art project into a casket. Someone's mom is not going to be pleased when she goes to defrost ground beef and finds a chick entombed in her chest freezer. . .
Ms. Palumbo needs a place for her random thoughts. She's putting them here!
