THANK YOU students & parents for the cards, gift cards, supplies, sweet treats, plants, and other gifts that I have received during the "Teacher Appreciation Week" at Rio Calaveras. I am deeply moved by all the kind thoughts and generosity. They are very much appreciated.
CLASS SUCCESS FIELD TRIP
Throughout this year, Room C7 students have been working hard to achieve. They believed in themselves and never gave up. They have survived 5th Grade and did so well. Even the mean teacher did not scare them at all!
We have done a lot together this year. To celebrate our 5th grade success, we are going to lunch together on Tuesday, 5/14. Bring enough money for lunch and maybe Starbucks afterwards.
CLASS TALENT SHOW
Our Class will hold our annual Class Talent Show on 5/23. All students in Room C7 are encouraged to sign up and have fun contributing to the show.
The only requirement is to have fun with classmates, not worrying about good or bad. Practice well and enjoy.
BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION PROJECT
The Students are hard at work constructing bridges using sandwich picks. This is a Math application project where each group must cooperate to build the best bridge possible that can hold the most weight under a limited budget. They have to follow building codes, fill out order forms, write checks, and run their building companies just like a real business. It’s a project that reinforces a lot of math skills, highlights social skills, and emphasizes concentration on details… and most importantly, it’s a lot of fun. Please ask your child daily about this project.
To inform parents of what's going on in the classroom, curriculum, news, progress, and activities. Please ask for the Learning Schedule that goes home every Monday.
