Zoo Fieldtrip on Monday, May 2nd

Zoo Trip on Monday, May 2nd
On Monday we have a fieldtrip to the San Diego Zoo to learn more about our watersheds. We are suppose to be there at 9:30, so we are hoping to get the students on the bus as soon as the busses arrive around 8:50 and be on our way as soon as they can start.

Students need to bring a healthy sack lunch.  Please pack it in a bag that they can carry and won’t fall apart, as they will each be carrying their own lunch and walking around with them.

Our chaperones are now all set and arranged.  (Remember to bring a lunch for yourselves as you will not be able to leave your group to purchase food.)

According to my weather app, we should be having lovely warm weather that day.  Please make sure that your child is dress appropriate for a day outside.  Have them wear sunscreen, a hat, and comfortable shoes.  Collin’s family was so generous and gave the students red hats last Friday.  I encourage everyone to wear them on our fieldtrip!

Awards Assembly on Friday, April 29th  8:10
Congratulations to Richard, Angelika, Sam, Audrey, Zoriyah for their good work.  We will celebrate them on Friday, April 29th.  Please feel free to join us if you can.

Golden Pyramid Scholars Award Ceremony-Saturday, April 30th 8:00 am
Congratulations to our scholars who will be receiving a Golden Pyramid Scholars medal of Honor and Award Certificate at Golden Hall, at the San Diego Concourse Golden Hall on Saturday morning.   Students receiving this honor were given a letter to let their parents know.  Parents need to respond by Friday, April 29th to confirm your child’s participation (information is on the letter).

Everyone is welcomed to attend this ceremony on Saturday morning.  http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07eccquvqs6220ddb8&llr=rnoon4tab

SBAC Testing
We started testing this week.  It is long and challenging for our students, but please encourage your child to do their best, and enjoy the process.  Remind your child to eat something in the morning.  Please make sure that they get plenty of rest and a full night’s sleep so they can be prepared to take their test.

If you are able to send some gum or peppermints for the class, we will use them during testing.

Scholastic Book Club
We’ve sent home book club catalogs this week.  If you would like to make an order, please enter your orders online by May 4th.  (If it is your first time ordering online, you will need to log on with our classroom using our classroom code GWTQW.)  I will plan to close out the order by next week, but you can let me know if you need a little more time.

Yearbook Logo Contest for 5th Graders
Get out your black pens and design a logo for Nye!  We will feature the winning design in the yearbook.  Students will need to draw a logo using black ink only.  (This black ink drawing will later be colorized using a computer program to do it.) Submit your drawing next week.
