Important information week of May 22nd to 26th  
Queridos padres,

We completed our end of the year reading assessment. The kids did a wonderful work!!! We will start our end of the year Math assessment this week. After having the results of the Math assessments I will start scheduling parents and teacher conferences. Please keep reviewing and practicing with your student all math skills covered through the school year (Please check homework copies and notebook in order to revise skills). Any question I will  be happy to help you. 

MAKERSPACE: The last great MAKE for the year in Makerspace will be “Upcycled Race Cars”.   The students will create cars to race downhill (similar to pinewood derby) in class.   We have all the parts necessary for this project in the Makerspace except for the car’s body.   We will need each student to bring to school one 20 oz. coke bottle, pringles can, or similarly sized container to use as their race car body.   Please do not send in 2-liters, full sized coffee cans, or jugs of any kind.     They are just too big.  Thank you for your support and for assisting your students in this maker endeavor. Mr. Marriot

Global Fair: Our class will be representing Thailand. For the parade,  the girls will need to wear a white shirt and the boys will need to wear blue navy or red shirt.
