We were busy this week with practices for the Moving Up Ceremony and finishing up summative assessments. Please take the time to check out your child's blog. These blogs are a record of the growth and learning that have taken place this year. The letters they wrote for the summative assessment are full of facts and humor! As they enter the teen years, definitely remind them of these health plans. Many talked about sugar, exercise, healthy eating, drug use, smoking, and relaxation.
A huge thank you to Dr. Sison for speaking to us about the toll that stress has on the systems of the body and teaching us some easy ways to slow down and chill out! Thank you also to Mr. Ravelo for speaking to us about the function of the human ear and ways to protect our ears.
Summer suggestions to help your child maintain academic skills-
*Spend time on Khan Academy, all students have an account with their school email, or they can sign up for an account with a home email.
Read, read, read- Start your own book club with your child by reading the same book. Students love talking about the books they are reading.
A few suggestions- The House of the Scorpion, Wonder, Rules, One for the Murphys, The Alex Rider Series
*Watch CNN Student News online and check out Wonderopolis
*Set up a blog or continue using kidblog to keep writing this summer.
Events This Week-
Moving Up Ceremony - Monday at 6 PM
