Friday is a fun school holiday for students and teachers and Monday is the day we set aside for Memorial Day. A lot of people spend the weekend traveling to a fun destination such as the beach or to visit family. Some people spend the weekend by the pool. It is the first official weekend most community pools open. The temperature is getting much warmer and it’s nice to be outside.
I hope that ALL of you enjoy your long weekend to relax, have fun, and hopefully study some! If you have internet access you should go to www.portaportal.com and type in byrde in the guest access box. Go to SOL Review Sites and begin getting ready for our social studies and science tests. Can you find 30 minutes a day to study? I think you can! Also study your multiplication math facts.
Have a great extra long weekend! 🙂
I’ll leave you with a BONUS question – if you post a correct response I’ll give you an SOL coupon when you return to school. Why do we celebrate Memorial Day?
