Major, 2nd grade, led us in The Pledge.
Milestones: Ms Zelski reminded us that Milestones testing begins tomorrow. Sadly this means we have to cover all the work in the hallways and classrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors. Also, it is very important to be silent in the hallways during transitions. Ms Zelski also reminded parents to please ensure that their students who are testing get a good night’s sleep and are here on time in the morning. Parents are not permitted to be in the building during the testing period, so please postpone any plans to join your student for lunch until after the testing period (4/25 – 5/4). Thank you for your understanding!
Word Nerd: Ms Jenkins shared some of her favorite new words that students have written on the New Word Discovery board outside her room: ILLUSTRIOUS; QUALITY; INTEGRITY. She is going to leave the paper up for any more new words that students discover here at school or at home. We learned the meaning of 2 more words this morning that Ms Jenkins thought interesting: Abdicate: to renounce or relinquish a throne, right, power, claim, responsibility, or the like, especially in a formal manner. Dilletante: a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge. Thanks Ms Jenkins! We are at least 2 words wiser now!
Song of the Week: Ms Cruz and Ms Araim’s 3rd graders led us with Help by The Beatles.
Mindful Moment: We took 3 deep breaths and thought about ways that we can make meaningful and positive connections with the people and world around us.
We wish you well.
