Dear Parents,

Remember we have praise and worship in chapel at 8:00 A.M. every Monday morning for the first 20-30 minutes, thanks to Mr. Weimer and children’s Pastor Brian Brooks. 

VISITING THE RESIDENTS AT SUNRISE SENIOR LIVING:
This Monday afternoon the students will create some artwork  with a guest art teacher, Mrs. Maya Davis, who is visiting our class.  They will use these creations to bless the residents of Sunrise Senior Living on Wednesday, March 28.  We will walk next door right after recess at 10:15 and visit with the residents in their parlor, walking back by 11:15.  Please join us if you are able to do so, or pray for blessings on all!

CELEBRATING THE RESURRECTION AND EASTER VACATION: 
Throughout this week we will emphasize the importance of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  From praise and worship, to creating artwork, sharing with our senior neighbors, discussing devotions and our Bible study, to a final celebration on Friday, the students will have opportunities to embrace the great sacrifice and promise of God. 

A MESSAGE FROM ROOM MOTHER DARBEE WHIPPLE:

Thank you for providing the goodies we will need for the party. It will be another good one, I’m sure!
We are going to put together a set of Resurrection Eggs. For this project each student will need bring the following items to class by Thursday, the 29th…
12 count egg carton, (cardboard preferably)
12 empty plastic easter eggs, (that will fit into the carton)
3 dimes…
I will have the rest of the items to complete the set.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call 352-5168 or email me.

In Christ’s Joy,
Darbee Whipple

MATH:
Both grades will continue Ch. 8.  5th graders are studying Multiplication and Division of Fractions while 6th graders learn Applications of Percent.  This week I will also pass out the challenge activity sheet packet.  A minimum of 5 pages should be done in the packets, though I encourage more in case of errors or a desire to do extra credit.  These challenges help fulfill our FCS ESLR of encouraging “critical thinkers.”

SCIENCE:
We will begin a new unit this week on matter and chemistry.

READING AND LANGUAGE:
Students should be concluding their fantasy books.  A short graphic organizer will be given for the students to write their responses to the books.  We will then begin new Literature Circles as the students are placed in ability groups to read award winning books.  We are also typing and editing our Young Author stories.  Each of these will be made into books and displayed in the hallway.

SOCIAL STUDIES:
5th graders should continue to study and master their U.S. states, locations, and capitals while they move forward with their study of American history.

6th graders continue to study ancient civilizations and work on their civilization projects.
