Week of December 16th

Before break we will wrap up the minerals portion of our minerals and rocks unit. Realize that we will not test over this material until we cover rocks after the break, so we will have some reviewing to do when we return. This week though, students will complete a mineral ID lab, as well as a mineral uses scavenger hunt online.

Thank you so much to all who were able to donate to our Christmas family. I know that they will be so very blessed by the generosity of the students and parents on yellow team. We were able to fulfill the wish list for each member! Cash donations were used for a gift card so that the family could purchase food for a Christmas meal or additional warm clothes for the winter! Thanks again for your help!

Homeroom families: There are just a few items still needed for our Christmas party. If you want to help, check the wish list page at this link: https://rrasco.wordpress.com/wish-list/ It will be a pretty laid back day with games and snacks. I don’t have a set schedule, but if you’d like to come by and enjoy the day or help out, feel free to do so anytime between 9:00 and 12:00! I have told students that they may wear pajamas. Just make sure they have appropriate shoes on because we will go outside for some fun relays, weather permitting.

This Friday is an early release at 12:30!

Thank you so much for making the first half of the year a great one! I have really enjoyed getting to know your children, and I’m looking forward to all that we have left to do this year. I hope that you and your family have a blessed Christmas!
