Social Studies: Next week students will have a review for the test. 5B will take it on 11/15. Students should be studying for the test at home by following the suggestions on the study guide which is on Google Classroom.


Science:  Students will create colorful diagrams of plant and animal cells. They will use these diagrams as well as the notes taken in class to prepare for a quiz on Thursday (5/16).

Religion: Students begin Chapter 14, New Life in Christ. Students will learn how the Sacraments of Initiation are celebrated for adults and children joining the Catholic Church.

English/Language Arts:  Hello HRS families. While we finished up Number the Stars early this past week, we also continued our practice of narrative writing. Students are currently working on writing effective dialogue, which they will use when they write a short story. We have also been practicing writing description with imagery, sensory details, and figurative language. We will continue working towards the short story after students present their projects for Number the Stars next week. We also discussed how the mood and tone of the final project should be that of respect and responsibility as we honor the characters and individuals who experienced The Holocaust. If you have any questions, let me know. These are due on Monday, so please have your child bring the project to school. They can drop it off in my room when they arrive. I can’t wait to see how students chose to show their knowledge of the book!

Have a good weekend!
