Wow, it’s May already! This year has flown by, especially since the winter vacation. We still have lots to do before the
school year ends.
Thank you so much to all of you who joined us for the
Palomar College planetarium field trip. Your participation makes field trips possible and is
extremely appreciated. The kids learned so much and I think it really helped
with their understanding of the night sky. I’ve included a copy of the planetarium brochure so you can
take advantage of their weekly Friday night events that are open to the
public. Many of the kids expressed
an interest in going back. Check
out all the specific info online.
This week is CAASP testing. My class will test on Monday and Friday from 8:30-10:00, and
on Tuesday and Thursday from 10:15-12:10. We are not scheduled on Wednesday. Please be sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep each night, has
a good breakfast and brings a healthy snack. It’s imperative that your child be on time.
Our in-class focus will be on our Moon Journals, their moon
phase writing, and constellations. We will also have a couple practices in the auditorium for our
musical. This week the kids will
not be allowed to use their scripts during rehearsal. Of course I will prompt them if anyone needs a
reminder. Please have your child
practice the script every night through the day of our parent performance. They are doing a really good job so
Keep up the great work on the Moon Journals! Thanks for encouraging your child to
stay current with the work.
I hope to see you at the Ice Cream Social this
Saturday. Support our Cardiff SEA
and join the fun. I will be
scooping ice cream from 11-12, so come see me! Be sure to check out the silent auction for our awesome
