Thank you to Rayleigh’s mother, Elvira Madrigal, for hosting the year-end swim party on Friday, May 22, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Our room moms will organize the food and drinks. Please let Ruth Williams know if you are willing to help. 

Students do not need to come to school first on that day. If your child will need a ride from school to the swim party, please let me know, as we will not be organizing formal carpools. You will also need to pick up your child after the party is over, or make arrangements for them to get home. We will not be going back to People’s Campus.  Again, if you need help with this, just let me know.

As we come to the end of our school year, would you please encourage your students to return all items checked out from the Library. The final due date for all items is Friday, May 1. Reminders of items checked out will be sent to the students beginning the week of May 4. There is a $25.00 fine for each item not returned. Many wonderful titles are lost each year because they are not returned. We greatly appreciate your assistance in getting books back in and onto the shelves so the collection is ready to go again in August. Thank you for your help!
Lin Brown, Librarian
Parents, please remember not to use the parking lots at the east end of building 5. They are reserved, per our agreement with People’s church, for Kids Inc. drop off and pick up. Many families are not following this policy and it jeopardizes our relationship with the organizations we share the campus with.


The required reading for the month of April is student’s choice and the written response is a poster illustrating the protagonist and the antagonist, with a memorable quote from each, due Friday, May 1. Students will be given the poster paper in class. Please put the name of the book and the author’s name on the back of the poster.

The required reading for the month of May is student’s choice. Since this is a very short and busy month, there will be no written response.

Class time will be given every day for silent reading and students are expected to read a minimum  of 10 pages a day. If they are unable to complete this in class, then reading becomes homework.


We continue reading “Harriet Tubman: Conductor on the Underground Railroad” by Ann Petry. This ties in with our Social Studies curriculum.


This week we continue Chapter 9: Multiplication and Division of Decimals.


This week we continue our study of the circulatory and digestive systems.

BIBLE: We continue Unit 7: Luke Writes About the Early Church.



The memory verse for this week is Galatians 6:10 and the test will be this Friday, May 1. Students will be graded on writing the verse accurately, including correct wording, spelling, punctuation, grammar and scripture reference.

The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17
