    NEWS ABOUT THE EXTENDED BREAK...

    Hello Families,

    Firstly, I want to say how much we are going to miss your kids over this extended break.

    The following work is recommended, but not required. Please follow our Daily Academic Schedule to continue your personal academic progress.

    MATH
    We hope that all the 5th graders will use this time as an opportunity to memorize their multiplication and division facts as well as review addition and subtraction facts. This should be a main focus.

    If you have access to the internet, the kids can log into their IXL accounts on IXL.com. The kids all know how to log into the site, and you will find a parent handout in the envelopes we sent home on the last day of school, March 16. The kids should also visit multiplication.com to play math fact games and take math fact tests. The site will even print flashcards for the facts the kids don’t know. Play Math War with the decks of cards.

    READING and WRITING

    We are sending home two reading logs for March and April. Please help your child find a book to read for pleasure, and talk to your child about the books they read. The kids can write about what they read and keep a journal, write stories or makeup comic strips. The kids can also write or email family members and friends.

    SCIENCE and SOCIAL STUDIES

    Kids: Explore the world around you. What interests you? What do you want to know more about? Read magazines and newspapers and visit websites. Help with cooking and baking and following and modifying recipes. Test different paper airplane designs. Plant a garden.

    Please stay safe and keep your families healthy over the break. Contact me through email if you need anything.

     

    MEALS WILL AVAILABLE FOR LA CONNER FAMILIES DURING THIS BREAK

    We will be providing 2 meals for pick-up beginning Tuesday, March 17. You can drive through at the MS/HS or Elementary School between 10:00 - 12:00 am to pick them up. This is available at no cost to all La Conner schools students, including McKinney Vento students who live in our communities.

    Please click on and complete this survey to let us know if you would like to sign up for meal services (pick up or delivery will be available - likely deliveries will begin on March 23).

    Food Service Request

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Hey! Now that the days are longer and the skies are sunny, you should be wringing every minute of daylight out of your day. Go OUTSIDE for a walk with your family and your dog (or in Noelle's case, with your chickens)! When you're inside, you should be reading a book, talking and hanging out with your family, and limiting screen time. Stay off your phones and pads and pods and see what is happening in real time right in front of you! 
     
    Remember to read, read, read! And pound those MATH FACTS!

    CLASSROOM SNACK POLICY

    Please note that we have a 5th grade student with a severe nut allergy. Do not send any classroom snacks or birthday treats with peanuts or tree nuts of any variety.

     If you are sending in snack food, it has to be healthy, no chips or candies. If you are bringing it in for the class, please be sure there is enough for about 20 kids. They like crackers, cheese, fruit, fruit snacks, nut free granola bars, etc.

    What are you doing still reading this when you could be reading a Ranger's Apprentice book? What are Will and Horace up to now? Or if you really want to be online, you could be playing games and pounding those math facts at multiplication.com.
