    The results from the eye exam went home last week. Please ask your child if you haven’t gotten them.

    Thank you again for supporting your child through the Exhibition. The student groups all took risks, promoted learner agency, and professionally presented in front of a variety of audiences. It was great to see their passion for the issues they chose shine through!

    With the end of Exhibition comes the beginning of our last unit, “Where We Are In Place & Time.” Within this unit of inquiry, we’ll be starting our fantasy book clubs in reading, writing memoirs, and investigating the Earth and Sun in science. We’ll be finishing up volume and geometry in math, as well. There are a LOT of vocabulary terms in geometry. The students completed a geometry review packet of what they learned in 4th grade for geometry that included a wide variety of these terms. It would be helpful if the students learned these terms in their home language and reviewed them often. Please ask your child for this packet so you can go over the terms together.

    I’m excited for you to come on Thursday to hear from the students at the Student-Led Conferences. The kids have been working hard putting their presentations together and gathering their evidence of growth. After your time in my room (or before), you are invited to go to the specialist classes. The teachers all have activities for you and your child to do together. These activities should not last more than 10-20 minutes.
