Newsletter for the week of April 3rd

Posted on April 7, 2017

Dear Parents,


I hope you all enjoyed our Publishing Party this week. All of the students worked so hard this week preparing their amazing stories and practicing reading their story aloud. It was such a pleasure to watch each of them read their story to you all with such pride! We learned that when we read our stories to others, we have to make it sound exciting. We have to read with enthusiasm and use the punctuation to help guide our reading to engage our listeners. They worked very hard during our Narrative Unit and their hard work is evident in their stories.  When we get back from Spring Break, we will be starting a unit on Featured Articles and Pollination.

This week in Mathematics, we completed chapter 8. Students learned how to plot data on a line plot using X’s to indicate a measurement. We spent a few days reviewing for our chapter 8-math test. This chapter focused on measuring different objects in inches and feet using the tools, an inch ruler, a yardstick, and measuring tape. Next week we will be reviewing different mathematics skills we have learned thus far. Next week we will begin chapter 9, where we will learn to measure different objects in centimeters. We will continue the chapter after Spring Break.

In Religion, we learned about the Liturgy of the word. The Liturgy of the Word is the first main part of the Mass when we listen to God’s Word. When we listen to God’s Word we become better followers of Jesus. By listening to the different readings at Mass, we remember all God has done for his people and about Jesus’ life and teachings. We will have the Chapter 16 quiz next Tuesday.

This week in Science, we learned about earthquakes and volcanos. Earthquakes can change the surface of land. After an earthquake happens, a landslide or a tsunami can happen too. Volcanos can also change the Earth’s surface. Magma, which is hot, soft rock, can push through the Earth’s crust. Once it leaves the Earth’s crust is becomes lava. When the lava cools, it becomes hard rock.

Our Chaperones for the NYBG Trip are:

  1. Jessica Cristian (Lucas’ Mom)
  2. Suzanne Campese (Jackie’s Mom)
  3. Nancy Franke (Katherine’s Mom)
  4. Yoomin Seo (Abraham’s Mom)

All chaperone must arrive by 9:15am. It is our goal to be on the bus by then!

Unfortunately, only four can come. I wish I was able to take all who volunteered.



  1. Spring Break is April 13th – April 21st.
  2. Our field trip to NYBG is April 26th, the first Wednesday we are back. All lunches must be packed in paper bags! No containers, thermoses, or silverware. It must all be disposable.
  3. Over the break, the homework is : 3 Reading Reflections


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a FABULOUS spring break! Happy Easter to all!
