Happy Spring Break!

Congratulations Class for winning the 2nd place Attendance Award.  Good job, everyone!

Spring Break March 20th-March 31st
Students are off for Spring Break.  We had a great 2nd semester with some wonderful fieldtrips.
Special thanks to the Mingei Museum who gave each child a family pass to visit the museum again.  I sent them home on Friday, so make sure that you check your child’s backpack.  The family pass allows your entire family to visit the museum for free!

Report cards were given out during Parent Conferences or sent home on Friday, so please check in with your child if you haven’t seen it.

During this break encourage your child to read, and write their stories down.  Take pictures of trips and family, cook together, measure and use fractions as you look at recipes, sort socks and make fraction piles, eat pizza and talk about fractional parts, look at those cereal boxes and macaroni boxes and find the volume.  When we come back from Spring Break, we will soon be starting state testing.  Fractions will be a big part of those math tests.

We will also start the measurement units in our Pearson Math program.  I’ve assigned some work online that your child can do over break to work ahead and be ready for our lessons when we come back.

Try to spend a little time with your child to look over the past units we have already done and go over the concepts they need to work on a little more.  This is a great opportunity to catch up and even put some energy into moving ahead.  Your child can also do STMath practice online, use Khan Academy, work on Spelling City and NewsELA.

Come to the Theater to See Me in Halo Halo
I will be opening in a show produced by Asian Story Theater called Halo Halo on Friday, March 31st.  This show is about San Diego’s Filipino Community, with stories developed through history and personal interviews.  These stories explore Filipino American culture and traditions, as well as struggles and triumphs that every audience shares.  In fact, four students from Nye Elementary have contributed to one of the stories featured in the show–our fifth graders: Aiden, and Rafael, and two fifth graders last year-Angelika, and Audrey.  There is also a contribution from Mr. Delute who has been a substitute principal this year at Nye.

Halo Halo runs for 2 weeks: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Lyceum Theater, downtown in Horton Plaza.  Hope to see you there.

Have a lovely week off! And see you back to school on April 3rd.
