Lots of Socks and No Cell Phones!

The sixth graders just returned from the Nature's Classroom informational meeting. The group is excited as the director shared a slide show that promises a week of hands on science, team building and a wonderful outdoor experience. Two of the big take-aways: you can never have enough warm socks and do not bring a cell phone for a camera. Forms are trickling in, thank you! If there are any additional questions please contact us!

Fifth and Sixth grade math

The fifth and sixth graders are working on a mini unit on map coloring. They will be doing most of this at home. It will lead them to discovering a famous math theorem. I won't reveal it just yet!
In fifth grade the students are studying triangles and quadrilaterals. Soon they will be studying decimal operations.
The sixth graders are studying patterns and variables. We are focusing on independent and dependent variables, and their relationships in charts and graphs.

Nature's Classroom Packets

Informational packets that include a suggested packing list, registration form and health form, were sent home today. Please go over the packet with your child and ask them to bring any questions they may have to Wednesday's informational meeting, or to their homeroom teacher. We will meet the director of NC at WUMS, Wednesday afternoon at 12:45. Please return the forms to school by next Monday, May 2. We look forward to great week in Maine with all the 6th graders in the district!

Third Quarter Report Cards and Conferences

It is hard to believe that the end of the third quarter was last Tuesday! Report cards will go home after April vacation. Although we do not schedule routine student conferences for the third quarter, we welcome them by request. Please contact your child's homeroom teacher if you would like a general conference where all three subject area teachers will attend, or you may contact just the subject area teacher you would like to confer with. Thank you!
