Last Day of School – LUNCH!


The cafeteria will be serving sacked lunches on the last day of school.  The attached form went home with students today.  If your child plans to purchase a SCHOOL LUNCH, they must fill this out and turn it it by Friday.  Otherwise, your student will need to bring his/her lunch from home.  Thank you!

Mrs. Phillips is in San Francisco

Social Studies Grades


Dear Parents, Please don’t panic!  I entered some grades today and have quite a few missing assignments, so some kids have an uncharacteristic lower grade.  If you see your child is missing an assignment, please encourage him or her to turn it in and see me if they are unsure of said assignment.  I will […]

Longitude and Latitude


Last week in social studies were learned about longitude and latitude.  This will be an ongoing skill we work on that can be challenging.  I found an online game the children really enjoyed playing.  Here’s the link:  

States & Capitals Resources


We are working on the Northeast region’s states and capitals this week, but I wanted to re-post the videos and links from last week’s homework page.  These videos and activities are good for reviewing all 50 states and capitals.  I will have quizzes throughout the year over all 50 and students can earn bonus points […]
