K-5th grade students will be bringing home Keyboarding Without Tears certificates this week, showcasing their hard work from this school year in the Media Center. K-3 grade students were given back their Hour (Trimester) of Code picture passwords, so they can continue coding and programming during the dog days of summer! The links to the Media Center Wiki (our student home Internet page on all school machines), Keyboarding Without Tears (K-5th Grade), Typing Ace (6th-8th grade), and Code.org/Coding and Programming section of the Media Center Wiki are below:

These are all great options for summer enrichment, but always remember to limit your screen time and take screen breaks, by going outside to enjoy the sunshine :)

Have a well deserved summer break!

Hello Families!

I can't believe this is the last full week of school! This school year has gone by so fast and I am trying to cherish every last moment I have with your children. We are finishing up a lot of things this week. The students will be finishing their planet projects and presenting them this week. I will video tape their presentations and send them to you. This project is graded more on how they work together in a group. We are also finishing up our last chapter in math (chapter 15) and will be taking a short quiz over it on Wednesday. Finally we are finishing up our persuasive letters this week. Today you should be a "last share day" in your child's red folder. I wanted every student to have one last time to share something with the class. Starting today and through next Monday 4 students will share each day.

As stated in the Clement Connection, the last three days of school include the following:

Monday June 12: Normal uniform day

Tuesday June 13: Field Day! Students will wear a certain color (more details later)

Wednesday June 14: Dress up day! Students may dress out of uniform but should "dress their best" ***this is also a half day and last day of school!!!!

Here are some upcoming dates

  • June 7: Math Chapter 15 quiz
  • June 9: 8th grade graduation and Anchor Day
  • June 13: Field Day
  • June 14: Last day of school!

Have a wonderful week!

Sincerely,

Ms. Freking

Dear Parents,

Wow, what a year! To better state that- what a GREAT year! We have covered a lot of material and participated in many fun and exciting projects. We have developed skills needed for Kindergarten and made many new friends along the way too. Each of your children has brought such joy and happiness to our classroom. We are so fortunate to have had such a wonderful group of children this past year. Thank you!

Best,

Ms. Manganaro and Ms. Arnold

Hello Families!

The last Scholastic Book orders are due Thursday! Tomorrow is the math chapter 14 math test. The math test is only around 12 questions. We are only teaching a few lessons in Chapter 15 (the last unit) in math and will be taking a short quiz next Wednesday. The science test over chapter 7 is this Friday. Again this test is a rather short one but I still sent home a review sheet. The students are also bringing their science books home starting today to study. Please make sure they bring them back every day because we are still in lesson 4. The students also have a filled out study guide that they will be bringing home. They may also use this to study. The students are working on their rough draft for their persuasive writing and are also finishing up their science projects. I will be recording their presentations and sending them to you so you can see their presentation as well. We are starting their presentations next week. All of their work is done in class and this is a group project. They are doing a great job with it! There is no spelling the rest of the year. We will still be doing our Mad Minute for multiplication fact practice and will be doing a couple division ones as well. We will end those next week.

As stated in the Clement Connection, the last three days of school include the following:

Monday June 12: Normal uniform day

Tuesday June 13: Field Day! Students will wear a certain color (more details later)

Wednesday June 14: Dress up day! Students may dress out of uniform but should "dress their best" ***this is also a half day and last day of school!!!!

In 5W, we are beginning to work on a very exciting Chicago architecture project that connects to the "Architecture is Art" theme from The Wright 3 novel. There are two components to this project. The first is a research paper that students will work on in class. Each student will choose a building in Chicago to research using the website http://www.architecture.org/architecture-chicago/buildings-of-chicago/. Today, they started doing research and taking notes on their building and its architect which will be used to write a final paper.


The second part of the project is a poster that includes important information about the chosen building and its architect. This part will be completed at home only. Both the paper and the poster are due on Tuesday, June 6th, the day after our Seadog Chicago Architecture Tour at Navy Pier.
