FCS AUCTION DINNER NIGHT
What a tremendous evening we enjoyed Saturday evening at the FCS Auction Dinner! Thank you for your donations and for the many hands working together with a great servant’s heart to make this event so wonderful. Your generosity will make it possible for FCS to continue to offer excellent Christian education for our children in our community. The body of Christ is strong and alive!!
Also, congratulations to Carston Saelzler for winning the silent bid on the “Get-a-Way Lunch with Mrs. Fraser and a Friend!
Our class had such a blast on March 14 declared as “Pi Day!” We enjoyed earning about geometry, the circumference of a circle, diamters, and 3.14 measuring pies with yarn and comparing circumferences and diameters. Math never tasted so DELICIOUS!!!! Thank you so very much for sending the delicious pies!

We completed our 3rd quarter benchmark assessment last Friday and will begin Chapter 8 on Division Concepts this week. We will be learning about the division of whole numbers. You can expect to see work that provides practice with dividing 2-digit numbers by 2, 5, 3, and 4. and with finding the unit cost. Please see the family letter coming home with the concepts covered in this chapter. Please check for understanding as we move forward.
This week our class will finish our Meux packet. We will continue our study in Unit 3 on Community History of Chapter 5 How Communities Began and Chapter 6 Building Communities. With all the Benchmark Assessments last week, we were quite BUSY!! On Monday partners will be assigned for the Fresno History Project Boards and Borders Buddies. Please check with your child as I will assign them to either bring in a freestanding Tri-fold board (size 36” x 48”) or a nice border for the project. These can be purchased at any school or office supply store. These will be due on Tuesday, April 10th, when we return from Easter Vacation.
YOUNG AUTHOR STORIES
Last week Wednesday we completed our Writing Benchmark Assessments on fictional narratives. This week we begin our fictional narratives for the annual Young Author Story Contest. Following the writing skills they have acquired, students will have an opportunity to write their own creative story. Their stories will be on display for Open House in May. Judges will select a first, second, and third place winning story from each class to be published. The first place winners will have their story published as a book and it will go on sale at Open House. Winning authors will be available to autograph their Young Author Story. Students will work on their stories in class as they move through the writing process of planning, organizing, rough drafts, coloring codins, revising, editing, and their final draft with illustrations.
BOOK REPORT PROJECT
Our final book report project for the year will be a Science Animal Cube. Students should choose a nonfiction book to read about a particular animal. Then complete the project according to the directions and rubric attached to Monday’s newsletter. These science animal cubes will be on display for Open House. Book report projects are due April 27.
