Tomorrow is the Science Fair.  Please send your student to school tomorrow with everything they need to present.  They will set up starting at 7:45 in the morning and judging will start at noon.  Parents are welcomed to come see the displays, but you will not be present during presentations to judges.  The projects can come home that afternoon.


The 4th Grade "We are Texans" Showcase will be Thursday, December 12th from 2:20 - 2:50 in the front hallway of the school.  Please come experience some of the cultures that made our great state of TEXAS!!  
Parents: Students should already have brought in Trifold boards and they will need 10 artifacts of their culture.  (they know this)

Science Fair Coming soon!

People doing a Science Fair project need to be mindful that it is due to me on December 10th.  Be working on it during the break!  :)  Happy Science!

4th Grade Parents

We are getting ready for our 4th Grade Showcase.  This showcase is  going to be on Dec. 12th at 2:20 in the front hallway.  Please come and see the amazing projects.
When the students return after Thanksgiving Break, they will each need to bring a TRIFOLD board of 36 X 48 size.  This is a big board....for a reason!  
They will each need 10 artifacts (or items that relate to their culture) to show and display.  (one of these is usually a food to sample!)

Myth Showcase Flyer

WE are so excited about this Friday Morning!  I am trying something new this year with Greek Mythology.  My students have really done it well!!  I am looking forward to a great Showcase on Friday as students come in to the school for the day!  The 5th graders will line the front hallway and turn it into a Greek Statue Hall of Fame!  Come by and see what they have created!!  
5th Grade Parents:  Please bring students to school between 7:30 and 7:45 dressed, (they can dress in my room if quickly done), and ready to set up!  Front doors open at 8:00 for students to come in for clubs and 8:10 for all students.  We want to be in place for 8:00.  

UIL CHESS Cancelled tomorrow

There will be no UIL chess this week due to a faculty meeting that has been scheduled and I have to attend.  We will have chess club and UIL chess next week!   

5th Grade GT ONLY

The students have been working on Greek Mythology.  They have researched famous gods and goddesses and they are now writing their own Myth based on a god or goddess they make up.  Ex:  God of Football, godess of Rainbows.  The creativity is amazing!! They have really enjoyed this unit and this is a first for me!  Our showcase will be on November 15th first thing in the morning.  They will come in at 7:30 and we will dress in our costumes and create a Greek Statue Hall in the main hallway.  When the other students arrive, they will see the "Greek Statues" and be able to view their research and Myths they created.  It is going to be a great show!  They will also be visible in call to Greatness!  :)  
They will need a costume that matches the god or goddess they created or studied.  It is totally up to them.  It can be a simple white sheet tied in a toga or a purchased costume.  The only requirement is that they dress as either the god they researched or created.  Parents are welcomed to come take pics as always!  It will be a sight!


Chess UIL practice is cancelled next Wednesday afternoon due to a staff faculty meeting.  I will need to be there and I do not have another afternoon that I can do Chess UIL.  (other than Friday and who wants to do that!)  :)  
NO...they do not!  :)   
We will resume on the 30th!
