I hope everyone enjoyed their break!
Tomorrow is the Chapter 4 Social Studies test. Then they will begin the next chapter which will be focusing on the New England colonies. There is lots to learn about the 13 colonies.
Wednesday we will be having the Tucson Symphony’s brass and percussion ensemble perform for grades 3-5 here at school. This is always an enjoyable performance, and we look forward to it.
Friday is the National Day of Writing so we will be dedicating some time to writing school-wide.
Friday evening is Coffee Cabaret. The beginning choir will perform as well as the middle school choir. This begins at 7:00 p.m. The performers should plan to be here at 6:30.

Happy October 1! I can’t believe that September is over.
Here are a couple of reminders for the week:
Our Chapter 2 Math Test will be on Thursday, October 4th. We are studying for it in class this week.
We will be having our last Qwest #3 on Friday, October 5. It will be the last Qwest for “Sing Down the Moon”.
Social Studies Chapter 4 Test will be Tuesday, October 16 after the break. They will have all of their study materials with them over break. They can also get their textbooks online now through Ms. Garcia’s blog.
Progress reports will go home on Wednesday in the Eagle Express. I encourage families to sit down and set some goals for the remaining trimester which ends November 9. There is plenty of time to bring grades up if needed.
As the weather may start to turn cooler (thank goodness!), I am reminding everyone that the only school acceptable sweaters and jackets are to be solid red, navy, or white with no contrasting trim, logos, or zippers. St. Michael’s logo is the only acceptable logo. Please remember to label your child’s jacket/sweater. We donate mounds of these to charities when they are without names.
Have a great week!
Today, students designed an investigation to determine the necessary conditions for activating dry yeast. After determining that water and a cookie produce yeast activity, they conducted an experiment to discover that it is the sugar in the cookie that activates the yeast. Yeast is introduced as a single-celled fungus.
Moving on to the Human System, the students got an introduction to the digestive system. We will move on to the circulatory and vascular systems this week.
I want to remind everyone that we are dismissed from school at noon tomorrow. There will be aftercare if needed. Teachers are having an afternoon of professional development.
Congratulations to everyone who tried out and will be part of “The Little Mermaid” cast. We will look forward to seeing them perform in January.
We are working really hard to make sure that everyone is completing their homework in a timely manner. It may be helpful if you periodically ask to see their assignment books to make sure that they have completed all the work assigned for the evening.
Our 1st QWest for our new Lit Study Sing Down the Moon is this Friday. It will also include parts of speech and how to use the word in a sentence, along with the definition.
We are drawing pictures and writing stories for Eagle’s Quill, which are due on September 26th. The theme is ‘the 80’s’! So I did some sharing this morning and they probably would love for you to do the same. The topics were: the movie E.T., the video game Pac Man, Cabbage Patch Dolls, CD’s, Aerobics, Mountain Bikes, Space Shuttle Program and more….
We are also starting Ch. 2 in Math and discussing the relationship of fractions, decimals, and percents.
Have a great day!
