Today we attended a fun assembly by WHOlives. Their mission is to bring water, health and opportunity to children in developing countries that are at great risk, due to scarce and contaminated water.
We discussed the world water crisis and were invited to participate in the Change for Water Challenge. The Challenge invites students to bring in coins throughout the week to help create a well in Africa. Students are encouraged to do chores at home or for friends and neighbors to earn the coins to bring to school each day.
Help us donate the coin of the day:
Tuesday= Pennies and Nickels
Friday= Dollars (Dollar dress down day)

Important: May 6th (Mon.) through May 10th (Fri.), we will not be having regularly scheduled class. Instead, we will be doing end of year testing. We will be administering the two main State mandated tests, so it is extremely important that your child comes rested and ready to work. I need ALL students to show up to be tested. I have created a sign up account in Sign Up Genius. As soon as possible, please schedule a time that works best for you to bring your student into our classroom for testing.
