March 3 - 7

Bacon Bears,

Its all about respect!

March is here! Now it is time for us to get super hyper focused on READING! Mrs. Benson has organized a Read Across America event for Monday, March 3 that will knock your socks off! Our theme this year is "Sink Your Teeth Into a Good Book." We will be meeting at 2:00 PM for an overview of the event and then each grade level will be reading to the kids (There will be some cool costumes as well).

For the rest of the week, each grade (and class) will be doing some other activities to reinforce reading!

March is Women's History Month and the 4th graders will be preparing to take the podcasting stage as they will be selecting, researching and interviewing an influential local woman. Stay tuned for the podcast :)

In addition to Read Across America. the students will be taking their 3rd Model Assessment this week. Our teachers and students have such an appropriate view of the Model Assessments.... They are designed to be formative assessments designed to assist teachers and students on what is going well and what needs improvement!
