We had a wonderful time visiting the Railroad Museum in Sacramento last week. Thank you to our grandparent- and parent-chaperones for helping: Mrs. Davidson, Mr. Loeffler, Mrs. DeGroot, Mrs. Aguirre, and Mr. French.


Hosting a swim party is a lot of work, as I’m sure you are all aware.  If any parent is willing to provide a pool for our 18 students, please let me know. You have all been a tremendous blessing to my class and me this year. I am thankful for your generosity expressed through cards, pumpkin bread, movies, gift cards, coffee and coffee mugs and on and on. My hope is to speak words of encouragement to each student as we wrap up a great year of growing in “loving one another.”

Fresno Christian Drama students present the musical Music Man April 21-23. Please support our talented students with your attendance. Tickets are $10 General/ $5 Students and Seniors. See the link below for more information.




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.

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.


This week we review multiplication and division of fractions.


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

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