FYI--lots going on!

All students on Mountaineer are memorizing a poem to present to their class on Friday, May 5.  Their will be an optional presentation on Monday in front of the entire Mountaineer team, for those who wish to participate.

Student-led conferences are on May 18, and these are currently being scheduled.  If your sign-up form was returned with a time circled--that's when you are penciled in.  Let me know of any changes that need to be made.

Students are continuing to learn the states and capitals, and they have quizzes every Wednesday and Friday for the next couple of weeks.

We will not be doing "spelling" for the remainder of the school year; we are using that time for intense language work that will include grammar, punctuation, and some spelling pattern work.

Reading logs should still be filled out.

June 9--field trip to Northern Lights
June 14--field trip to Maple Street
June 16--field trip to Mills River
June 20--step up day, half day of school
