We started off the day with an assembly to recognize the winners of this year's PTA Reflections contest.
This is a national event, and students who win at their schools go on to complete regionally and nationally. We were fortunate enough to have one of our own students as a winner this year!
After this, we went to the library where Mrs. Sartori played the recording of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech while showing them a lovely picture books illustrating the inspiring words.
The rest of the day was devoted, as Fridays so often are in school, to assessment. We went over all our homework, particularly the math, in preparation for today's Topic 9 test. We took our spelling test. They took a history test with Mr. Pratt. After lunch, we took the math and reading tests. These have all been graded and the results are on the new grade book. The students returned to Mr Pratt during the mixing block to begin work on Willy Wonka, this spring's play.
Homework: Students were again given a list of grades to date in all subjects and missing work. Parents should sign this and students will return it on Tuesday.
