Weekly Update for the Week of Dec. 8-12
Interested in Being a Fieldtrip Chaperone?
We have two fieldtrips coming up!
For this field trip, I will also like someone to assist in helping me find additional drivers (if we need more) and then complete a driver information checklist for each vehicle. Please email me if you are able to help in this way.
*Given the tight time frame, I am also attaching each permission slip to this email for you to use as a backup to the hardcopy one already sent home.
Calendar Project Due Monday!
Calendars need to be print ready and paid for by Monday, December 15th. Your child should have brought home the “2015 Calendar Print Order Form” in the purple Home Folder today.** This quality of each student’s research, challenging math problems, and awesome detailed illustrations is inspiring!

Two-Week Work Plan
After experimenting with a two-week work plan during the weeks of conferences and Thanksgiving, students have requested that we continue using it. This means you will be receiving your child’s work plan every other Friday, instead of each Friday. Look forward to the next Bi-Weekly Work Plan on Friday, December 19.
Many students have indicated that they believe there are historical connections to the 3-Islands Project. To help facilitate their interest in making these connections, I am providing lessons built around Joy Hakim’s history book series called, “A History of US.” Students are in the process of reading their third chapter focussing on European exploration of the Western Hemisphere.
