5th Grade Yearbooks

5th Grade Year Book – Order Deadline April 25th
This 5th grade year has been so exciting, full of great experiences and memories.  To celebrate these memories and events families have an opportunity to purchase a 5th Grade Yearbook commemorating our time together at Nye.  These books will be passed out the week before promotion, so students will have plenty of time for signing.  However, we will need to order the yearbook vouchers now in order to receive the special price.

The 5th Grade Yearbook is an 11 ¼ by 8 ¾ hardcover photobook.  A letter was sent home Monday.  If you are purchasing  the Yearbook(s), please send the bottom of the letter back with your payment.  If you are not planning to buy a book, it would help us greatly if you could check the bottom indicating that you have seen the letter, but are not planning to buy the photobook.

If you have some good pictures that we might be able to include in the photobook, please feel free to send me the photos in jpeg format at maximum resolution and size on a disk (sandisk, usb, or CD).  Email sometime reduces, compresses or changes the image so a disk will be best.

Thank you to those who have already sent back their orders.  Again, all yearbook orders must be received by Monday, April 25th.

Craft Night
Craft Night is Wednesday, April 27th from 6:00-7::00 in the Nye Library.  It’s a fun night out with the family.  Come join us!

Jump Rope for Heart
Students are jumping to raise money for the American Heart Association this week.

Here is a link to a video from the American Heart Association about 3 heros and how they are helping to combat heart disease.

SBAC Testing
Next week we will be taking the Smarter Balance Assessment.  These tests are given to students across our nation and give us a snapshot of how we are doing.  Students will be taking these tests online.  You can take a look at the practice test with your child at home.  Students can find the link in the Nye Website.  I encourage you and your child to take some time to use these practice tests at home (in addition to what we are working on in school) and become familiar with the online tools and formats used.  Students can practice the tests at their grade levels to see how the tests are organized and become more comfortable with the formats.

Dr Zoolittle

On Monday, we had a fun assembly about the Watershed in preparation for our trip to the Zoo on May 2nd. Then Dr. Zoolittle came by on Wednesday to do a great activity in the classroom.  Students had to be detectives to examine some guts and figure out what animal had eaten them, and then what the animal died of.  We also got to see and touch some live animals.

This program about Watershed Heroes has been wonderful and we are looking forward to our fieldtrip on May 2nd.  We are also looking for a few parents to join us as chaperones that day.  If you are able and would like to be one of our chaperones, please contact me through ClassDojo.  The bus will be leaving school at 9:00 that morning.  Students (and chaperones)will need a sack lunch and should wear a hat and sunscreen, and comfortable shoes for walking.

Thank you Ms. Keisha!

We have been fortunate to have Ms. Keisha as an aide this last month.  She has made a big impact in our class and we love her.  We are sorry that Friday, April 22nd will be her last day at Nye.  We wish her well in her new job placement.
