  • 5th Grade IMAX Field Trip

    On Friday, May 26th our fifth grade classes will be traveling to the Portage 16 IMAX Theater.  While there, we will view the movie Hubble. 

    This movie is a 3-D experience and offers our students an opportunity to experience life aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis.  The film’s goal is to make viewers feel as though they are voyaging through space, seeing with the assistance of the Hubble telescope and experiencing the life as one of the astronauts working on the telescope. 

    The cost of the trip is $8.00 per student.  If you would like to sponsor a child for the field trip, donations would be appreciated. Please send in the permission slip and payment on or before Thursday, May 18th.

  • Sixth Grade Reading Homework Letter

    Just like learning a sport or musical instrument, reading is a skill that needs to be practiced
    daily! In our classrooms, students are given time to read books of their choosing each day. In
    allowing them to choose their own reading material, our goal is that students will develop a
    positive outlook on reading that will continue throughout their lives.

    We are asking for your help in achieving this goal. You’ve probably noticed that your child has
    written “Read” in his assignment book for each day of class this year. Students have been told
    that they are expected to be reading independently at home each night, for at least 20 minutes...
