Dear Renaissance Families,
Fourth and Fifth grade students left for Nature's Classroom today, May 15th. Students unable to attend Nature's Classroom will complete How To Video Projects, where they will teach students about specific math topics. On Friday, May 19th these students will attend the performance "Miracle Worker" at Queens Theater. Please complete permission slip and return them to school ASAP.
Field Day will be held on June 9th. We are looking for chaperones to run stations. If you are interested, please email me.
The third grade continues their work on their upcoming musical Amanda Bean's Amazing Dream. The group is practicing memorizing lyrics of composed music. During dance they are working on putting dance moves to these songs. In class, we casted the roles and we began practicing scenes during our MOG blocks. We welcome back Brandon, our teaching artist from the Guild, in the end of May.
Fifth, Fourth, and Third graders are given access codes to Khan Academy. The little mathematicians are enjoying working on the Ipads during class. I recommend that students continue to practice at home. Extra credit will be awarded to friends that log in extra minutes.
Some important dates for you to note:
May 15-19th- Nature's Classroom
May 19th- "Miracle Worker"- Queens Theatre
June 9th- Field Day
Academic grades are logged on the online grade book PupilPath. Please make sure you log in to see your child's progress. If you have any questions about PupilPath, please direct your questions to Victor.
Thank you for your continued support!
