Welcome Back! Here is our PARCC schedule- please make sure your child has plenty of sleep, a healthy breakfast and snack, gum or mints for testing, and a working pair of headphones.
PARCC schedule:

Monday April 9th: Math 4 morning
Wednesday April 11th: ELA 1 afternoon
Friday April 13th ELA 2 afternoon
Tuesday April 17th: ELA 3 afternoon


Advanced ELA: We begin our Greek Mythology Unit with Heroes. This quarter, students will read about Greek humanities nonfiction topics, and Percy Jackson Lightning Thief. Each student will complete an independent study on Porquoi Mythology in class along with an at home project with Greek Mythology Research. Please check my Downloads Tab for a copy of the directions and due dates.

Math: We will continue with decimals with comparing and representing comparisons using area models, number lines, and place value charts. There will be small amounts of homework, even on PARCC days, so please keep up with our regular schedule. The End of Module assessment will be on Thursday and Friday this week.

Social Studies: Great job on the West quiz- we will conclude fourth quarter with a study of types of maps, and our state float project- more details to come!

Science: Students will be demonstrate knowledge about potential and kinetic energy through the chain reaction experiment.



Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12.
