April 7-11, 2014
The countdown to TCAP has begun! We are about three weeks away! Our classes are working hard to review and prepare for our state standardized tests. TCAP tests will be given April 28- May 2nd. Don't forget to complete your parent homework! This is TOP SECRET! All parent homework is due by Friday, April 18th. Also, let me know if you can send in snacks or water for TCAP week. Thanks for your help and support!
We have two special programs lined up for this week. Ms. Cat will be back with our last formal Rudy Raccoon lesson on Monday. WCYB Meterologist Kaitlin Penfold will be at Towne Acres on Tuesday afternoon. She will be speaking to the third and fourth grade classes about the weather and meteorology. We are excited!
Remember we do not have spelling words or vocabulary words at this time. We will have a DOL quiz each Friday over the skills we are focusing on for the week. The homework packet is due on Friday, as well. Keep working on reaching your AR goal by reading each night.
