    Teacher Comments:  The class attended an interesting assembly about living with an allergy this week.  The speaker reminded students to not let their allergy or their friend's allergy define them as a person.  He told all students to focus on what they CAN do, not what they can't do.  It was an excellent message.  We also started a unit on Multiplication & Division of Fractions this week.  The class is learning to use different strategies and models to help multiply.  We also attended the Middle School play which was very exciting.  In addition, we began reading, Esperanza Rising, our latest class novel.  It's a fabulous book with lots of incredible life lessons.  We had a wonderful visit from a special Guest Reader, as well.  The students loved her stories.  Your child has his/her passwords for Google Classroom, IXL, & ReadWorks in his/her planner.  They will be able to use these to access digital learning if it becomes necessary.  Have a terrific weekend!! :) 
    **This slip will come home every Friday with important information, tests, essays, and other important papers attached.  Please review it, sign it, and have your child return it, with attached tests and other work (when attached), to school on Monday.
