The Math MCAS is this Monday and Tuesday. Please send your child to school well-rested, well-fed and ready to go! They should also bring a water bottle and a book to read. Thank you to parents who sent in snacks and supplies. We have been reviewing for the past few weeks and the students are prepared to show their knowledge.
We started reading Joshua’s Song this week, a historical fiction novel that takes place in Boston in 1919. We will be reading about life at that time when kids often worked at a young age, lived in tenements and had to take care of themselves. I know it will spark many interesting discussions.
We reviewed “kind” and “unkind” behavior during Morning Meeting this week and talked about appropriate ways to respond when someone is unkind. Everyone was aware of the effects of teasing words and how they can be hurtful.
Ms. Donaghey finished her student-teaching on Wednesday. We were sad to see her go because she was a wonderful part of our class this spring. She will be substituting the last few weeks of school, so hopefully we will see her around Foster School!
Please return the yellow forms for the office on Monday, if you haven’t already. Two signatures are required; one on the front with updated information in the school database and one on the back under the medical information.
