End of the year projects
We are doing several projects for the end of the school year. In ELA, we are creating a timeline on U.S. immigration. In math, we are doing the Math Day projects where the students have to create a story using math topics that they've learned throughout the year. Finally, in science, we are starting to think of inventions to showcase during the Invention Convention in June 20th. It's going to be a busy last month!
Please keep in mind that the Math MCAS is next Tuesday and Thursday. Remember to have your child sleep early the night before the test and eat a healthy breakfast the day of the test so that he/she is prepared . Thank you!
