IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!!!!

-CHANGE IN TIME OF WAX MUSEUM

_Due to a conflict in schedules at school, our Wax Museum is going to have to start at 11:15. Please arrive at school by 11:00 and check into the office.

Again, new time, same date…Friday, April 17 at 11:15. Please arrive by 11:00 to check in. We will start promptly at 11:15. The Wax Museum usually only takes 20 to 25 minutes once we start.

You must have a driver’s license or a state ID.
At this event, each child will be dressed up like an important person from history that has made a difference in the world. This person will be researched and studied during class but students may also do further study at home if they would like to. Each student will write a first person factual report in school and try their best to memorize it.
I wanted to give you advanced notice so that you can try to come up with some kind of a costume. If possible, please try to find items around the house and be creative. I don’t want parents to feel like they need to go out and spend a lot of money on this.
I am really looking forward to working with the students on this and hope that you will be able to attend our event.
Costumes will need to be worn to school on the day of the performance (Friday, April 17). The students may bring a change of clothes to change into later if they want to but do not have to. Keep in mind; we have P.E. in the afternoon.

Thank you!

STUDY ISLAND:
Please be sure to have your child practicing on Study Island as much as possible from home. It is a program that has been PROVEN to help students learn at an accelerated pace when used properly and often. OUR CONTEST STARTED MARCH 1ST AND CONTINUES THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF MARCH!

Math Fact Practice:
Please have your child go on xtramath.org daily to practice their math facts. You can write the time down on their logs that they are practicing on this website. If they finish a session, they can always log off and log back on in the same day. They will need either your email address that you used to sign them up or my email address which is lcoverick@summithill.org
They will type their first name.
Then they will need their pin number.
Every time a student passes an operation they will receive a certificate and a rubber ducky as their reward!
Thank you for your support.
