Message Home Before March Break
Hello Riverbend Families,
We want to reach out just before March Break begins. The kids have worked VERY hard this week and we are proud of their accomplishments. The Hawks finished up their class novel " The Graveyard Book," and we heard there wasn't a dry eye in the class, even Jordan was getting choked up. The Owls have finished working for hours each day in school and at home for 5 weeks on their Argument Essay. These final essays would probably put some high school kids to SHAME! Go Owls.
Heather has sent home a small math package for the Hawks that they can work on to keeping their skills sharp. We know March Break is a time to recharge and rest. However many students requested extra work, so Heather wanted to extend the work to all keen learners! These aren't long assignments, so Hawks do what you can to keep your Math brains active. Owls can always work on IXL modules in Math for a little practice.
ELA Challenge Over the Break
Any students who choose to can select a book of interest. A goal of reading 20 minutes per day is a great start. Challenge yourself to stop and ask those questions we've been practicing all year. Use the stop and jot bookmark posted below to guide your thinking during your reading.
Keep a journal! Write the date at the top of the page each day and write down your thoughts and exciting things that are happening.
Meeting With Cathy Rogers Over March Break
We are encouraged and happy to be having a meeting with Cathy Rogers over the March Break. We will be discussing tuition transfer again and hopefully making progress for Riverbend and it's families!
HAPPY MARCH BREAK!
