Thank You Biztown and Pacific Western Bank!

Thank you to Pacific Western Bank who sponsored our amazing trip to Biztown.  It was such a wonderful and memorable day for our students who practiced the skills needed in a working economy.  Student all had a job and a role in the Biztown community and learned how the economic flow works with workers, businesses, banks, and government.  It was a day full of lessons, and many were inspired to think more deeply and work towards their goals and place in the greater society.

A special thanks to our parent volunteers who made it possible.  Biztown cannot happen without you.  Special shout out to Genny, Susanna, and Judith!

Scholastic Book Club
I’ve sent home the book club catalogue for May.  They are featuring Lemonade War for $1.00.  I am encouraging each family to please order this book for your child so we can read it together in class.  It is a funny book, which also reinforces some of the things we learned about economics in our Biztown unit.

Please place your order online or send $1.00 into school before Wednesday, April 19th.  I would like to close the order then so they can send us our book as soon as possible.

Order  online. If this is your first time ordering online, you will need to enter our class code:  QJ3YR

Pearson Math
We will be taking our Unit 11 Assessment on Friday.  Please remind your child to study.  Go over the word problems and practice conversions.  Look at the previous quick checks to see how the questions are constructed and think through the problems together.

Next week we will start Topic 12.  It is a short unit.  Our Unit 12 assessment will be next Friday.
