Super Sunny Saturday

Hello Everybody,

Well, I must admit that I am quite pleased that standardized testing is over because our normal school schedule will resume on Monday. While working on my lesson plans today, I can’t believe that we have only four weeks left in this school year. Believe me, these last few weeks will be busy and go by very quickly yet exciting at the same time.

On Monday, we will continue to work on Unit 5 in our grammar book which means a quiz and test will be the following week, but I will give your student more details when I see how we handle these last three lessons in this unit.

In Reading, our next story is a cute and fun one because it’s a Reader’s Theatre story that’s entertaining and educational at the same time. There will be a spelling list from this story along with history words that Mrs. Kuegeman is teaching right now. Please keep in mind that the last book report presentations will be given on Friday, May 4. Hopefully, your student was able to read or reread his or her book last week between the sessions of testing because now all efforts can be towards their last book report project.

For Mrs. Leagan’s homeroom, we will finish up math Chapter 7 on Probability and Statistics. We’ve been working on this chapter a little bit each day, and after one more lesson we will be done. I am hoping that a Check Your Progress quiz and chapter test will be later this week. Details will be given soon.

In case you haven’t heard, Friday, April 27 is Field Day at Fuller’s Park. Your student will receive his or her t-shirt and information later this week. By far, this is one of the best school days of the year! We would love for you to come and cheer on your student, Wood Acres, and the beautiful weather that should happen that day. Please make sure your student is wearing sunscreen and team color t-shirt, so good sportsmanship and sunburn don’t get in the way of this awesome day.

Tomorrow, I will be attending a celebration for a former student who just completed his basic training for USMC. I taught this young man when he was in second grade at Wood Acres about twelve years ago, and I couldn’t be prouder of his accomplishment. I love to see how and where former students go and which path they take after leaving me. One day, I hope to see your student come back and visit with news of their accomplishments. Until then, please enjoy each day with your student because they do grow up in the blink of an eye.

Take care, and I’ll see all of my super students Monday morning.

Yours truly,
Cheryl Leagan
