THIS WEEK: Monday, May 14 - Sunday, May 20, 2012

If your mom was able to come out to our Mother's Day Tea on Friday, I hope you gave her a big 'thank you,' and if not, then I hope you told her how AWESOME you were! For those who are interested, we have DVD's of the tea for $5. The money will cover the cost of the DVD, and then any 'profit' will be put toward Father's Day. Now we can work on our Father's Day Breakfast! How many dads received their AudioBoo?
Once again this week, our only Online Assignment will be the SumDog Challenge. It will run from 4:00 pm on Thursday until 8:00 pm on Monday, May 21 (over the long weekend). We will have our SumDog Class Competition on Thursday of this week. While I am not assigning any TypingWeb, remember that you can always go in and 'redo' any lessons to get a higher typing speed (and therefore a higher word processing mark for Term 3) :-).

We will be having our last in-class FLIGHT lesson on Monday, May 14th. The Take-Home Activity (creating a Hovercraft) will be due on Tuesday, May 22 (right after the long weekend). The Wrap-Up Activity for Lesson 4 will not be a 'quiz,' but instead, you will be asked to bring some materials to create one last plane - one that you will enter in our classroom(s) competition :-). You will get more details regarding this soon. The Wrap-Up Activity will take place during the week of May 22-25. Then comes the real fun! Have you ever been told to, 'Go fly a kite?' If not, then I will soon be telling you to do just that! :-) We will be designing our kites, and when they are all done, we will spend some time out flying kites with Rm. 117 :-). Fun! Fun! Fun!

Over the next few weeks, we will be completing all of the School Board assessments that are due at year end, so be sure to come to school rested and ready to focus. :-)It is so hard to believe that we are at this point in the school year already! If you have been watching our Class Calender, you will have noticed that we have a few activities planned for June already - Fieldhouse (June 6), swimming at Massey pool (June 14), Father's Day Breakfast (June 15) and Tunnels of Moose Jaw (June 21). Before we know it, the school year will have ended :-(.

Here's to a QUIET, CALM week in Rm. 205! :-) :-)
