Spring Break-March 25th-April 1st

BizTown Job Interviews and Primary Election for Mayor
Your child will be interviewing for a job at BizTown on Thursday, March 24th.  Students will be competing against students from all three classrooms (Ms Robinson, Ms. Nafferete, and our classroom) for the positions. Students will need to have their Job Application Form completed. I also encourage our students to dress for their interview and to bring a resume to hand in with their application.  Please practice a short interview with your child.   This will give them confidence as we go through the process.

We will also open an election process for the BizTown Mayor. Mayoral candidates will need to write a speech to introduce themselves to the citizens of BizTown and convince them that they are good leaders for the BizTown community. I will be asking students to formally announce their intent to run for this position on Thursday.  They will deliver their speech and we will do a primary run in our classroom on Friday.

After Spring Break our classroom nominee will to give their speech to all three classes on Monday and students will vote for Mayor. Please talk to your child about these opportunities for experience and encourage them to do their best and have fun.

Thanks for your help.

End of Trimester Spring Celebration
We are having a Spring Celebration on Friday at 10:45-ish. Students have been working on fractions and I would like to encourage them all to practice their fraction skills by looking at a recipe and working out how to multiply or divide the measurements in order to double or halve the recipe. They can then make something for our celebration and bring it to school to share with their classmates.

Please join us if your are able. We’d love to have you.

Awards Ceremony is on Friday, March 25th at 8:10
