Just a Couple Things….

Here are a couple of announcements for you:

1)  When I meet with each group this week, they will receive information concerning a Science Olympiad opportunity at ESU #3 on Nov. 5th.  If your child is interested in attending, please fill out the permission slip and send back to me or there is a link on the slip  that you may also use to register on line.  Please only do one or the other, not both.  We are only able to take 16 students in grades 4-6,  so we will be randomly drawing students on Oct. 29th.  You will be notified if your child’s name is drawn.

2)  Classroom spelling bees will be held this week.  The students will be taking a written exam consisting of 20 words.  These will be scored and the top 12-15 students will be asked to participate in the school bee. Sunset’s  school bee will be held on Nov. 4th at 1:30 in the gym.  Loveland’s school bee will be held on Nov. 12th at 1:30 in the gym.  Family members of the contestants are welcome to attend.

3)  Fourth grade EY students will take a written math exam this week to determine the top 24 students that will attend the Marrs Magnet Math Competition.  When those students have been determined, they will be given some practice materials to use.  The Marrs Competition is on Monday, Nov. 18, there will be more information coming for those that are selected to attend.

That is all for right now! 🙂  Please let me know if you have questions or concerns.  Thanks!

  1. I am excited for the spelling bee. Please tell my little speed demon to take his time, as I know he can spell very well but he rushes and makes mistakes he knows. Will they be able to practice the words?

    1. Good question! None of the students will be able to practice the 20 words on the classroom spelling bee. The top 15 qualifiers from the school will be given a study list to prepare for the school bee.
