to Lyndsi and her mom, Julie, for making the delicious cupcakes for Mr. Ewing’s 50th birthday.

Happy Thanksgiving! I can't believe that November is almost over! Students drew names in our classroom on Friday for the Christmas party. I have placed those in your folder. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. All of our fall/Thanksgiving projects will come home this week! When we come back on November 29th it will be all things Christmas until break! I have also enclosed a book order form; it is due back on Monday the 29th or you can order online. I hope these will be in before Christmas break but we cannot guarantee that. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy the time with your family! - Miss Stacie

Kindergarten news

It is a short week! Our theme will focus on Thanksgiving. Sight words and classwork will be sent home on Tuesday instead of Monday this week. We will review the phonemic sounds we have been working on, and we will learn a new trick for when to use the letter c vs. k when writing. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am very thankful to be your student's teacher this year. - Mrs. Stewart

1st grade news
2nd grade news

Because this is a short week, neither grade will have spelling words. We will continue working on phonics and reading. I have some Thanksgiving Day activities planned as well. Please remember that almost everyone still has AR tests due. Use the long weekend to read those AR books. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and enjoys the long weekend. – Mrs. Hird

3rd grade news
4th grade news

Since this is a very short week, our class is going to complete a couple of Thanksgiving activities in class. We will also complete a Missouri Studies Weekly study guide for week 7, review together, and take the short test on Tuesday. We will also be focusing on math facts. I still have several kids in class who haven't mastered addition or subtraction facts without using their fingers. This is something very important for them to master as we will soon be working on mastering all of our multiplication facts. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving break! - Mrs. Cooper

5th grade news

Happy Thanksgiving! 5th and 6th graders will be finishing their alphabet poems this week. 5th graders will have a Social Studies test on Tuesday over Ch. 1 L. 3 & 4. 6th grade will have a Science test over Ch. 2 on Tuesday. Students will also be looking at the history of Thanksgiving and doing some fun activities like a Reader's Theater. Don't forget-AR book requirements are due Friday, December 10th, so keep reading! - Mrs. Foster

7th & 8th grade news


By now, you should have had a chance to see mid-quarter grades. The short week finds us finishing up a unit on verbs in grammar. In science, seventh grade will be moving on to a unit dealing with astronomy, while eighth grade is working on a unit on cells. Students have chosen to draw names for the gift exchange, and I wanted to make sure that you know that your student knows who they've selected. No tests this week. Enjoy the break. 5/6 Math: In finishing up before break, fifth grade is working on problems involving part/whole relationships and mixed measures. Sixth grade is working on mixed number problems and the various uses of prime factorization.
