Afternoon:

Reminders at the bottom.

Math: Started working on the last part of our last ‘new’ SOL. We took a square and created a tangram.

Science: more Sound reviewing.

Field Trip Information:

Our fifth grade trip to the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Museum is WEDNESDAY!  I am sure the kids are getting excited and ready for a charter bus ride and day at the aquarium.  Please be sure to have your child in his or her classroom by 6:40.  We will leave Shady Grove by 7:00 a.m.  Students should each pack nut free snacks and lunches to eat on the bus.  They can also bring games, books, and other non-electronic activities for the 2 hour bus ride.  The children do not need to bring their backpacks or binders since we will not be going through our normal school day. Students may bring a string bag for their lunch, snack, etc. Please do NOT send money as we don’t have time for the gift shop and can’t purchase items from the snack bar.

 

We will return to Shady Grove at 3:00 p.m.  Please plan to meet your child in the classroom to sign him or her out.  If your child is walking, riding a bike or going home with another parent, please send a note tomorrow so all students can arrive home safely at the end of the day on Wednesday.   Thanks for understanding.

Our chaperones for this trip are :

Mr. Agarwal

Mrs. Calisto

Mrs. Tittermary

Mrs. Baker

Ms. Hanfi

Mr. Wu

Mrs. Gamboa

Mr. Hagood
