Our fifth grade students just completed the Writing SOL test. The test consisted of a multiple choice section and writing to a prompt. The information gathered from this state-wide assessment will allow us to see how well our children have performed in comparison to other fifth grade students in Virginia.
Fourth grade students have participated in a series of video conferences with experts in the field of Virginia History. They have had the opportunity to see artifacts, hear lectures and ask questions of presenters. In April, the Mosby Heritage Foundation will be here in person to share additional information about colonization.
Third grade is busily preparing for the arrival of baby chicks. They are watching eggs hatch and learning about biomes and habitats. Our first and second grade students are learning a great deal about the reading and writing process. It is fascinating to see how much they have learned since September!
Report cards will be going home on April 9th. Our annual student – teacher basketball game will be held on April 11th. As SOL testing begins on May 12th for grades 3, 4 and 5 and ends the last week of school, we will be having Field Day earlier than usual, on April 25th. If you would like to volunteer to help on that day, please contact Mr. Hawes.
Thank you for supporting our PTO Book Fair. The money raised by the PTO will be used to purchase books for our guided reading program.
Spring Break begins April 14th. We hope that you and the children will have the opportunity to do something special!
