We’re almost done! The Math SOL is tomorrow, remediation Friday and retakes Friday if they qualify. Please review one last time tonight using the SOL test taking strategy handout and your notebook. Be sure to get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy breakfast and be on time. Testing begins at 9:00. Make sure you have at least 2 good pencils with erasers.
It is a long day and most likely the longest of the 3 SOL tests, so be sure you have a good book to read after you submit your test. Now that the school library is closed for check out, you may want to stop at the Ladysmith Library to check out a couple good books to read over the next few days.
Friday 5/17 is PTA Cotton Candy Treat Day. Send in $1.00 no later than Thursday if your child wants to pre-order. It is also Hawaiian Day.
Monday 5/20 is the 5th grade cookout. No need to send in a lunch.
Tuesday 5/21 is the 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony at 9:30. This is more than a typical awards assembly. Students are asked to dress nicely. Parents are encouraged to attend. If you plan on taking your child home immediately following the ceremony, you will need to come back to their homeroom and sign them out.
Wednesday 5/22 is the last day for students and is an early dismissal.
