Weekly Packet: I had planned to send home a weekly packet today, but didn't have time to put them together before school ended today. I'll try to send the packet home tomorrow instead. 

Math Homework: Students received a math packet today, which we will work through over the next week or so. Their math homework is to complete page 17 in this packet. This is due on Wednesday, Nov 15.

Back to the Future: Well, I tried... Over the summer, I switched our class website to a simpler system that I hoped would save me time. The good news is that I learned about static website generation programming in Go, a hip new programming language with a strong future, and had a good time with it all. The bad news is that it didn't turn out to be a time saver. Therefore, I'm switching back to our good old tried and true class website: http://wss4.ronliskey.com

 

Dear Sixth Grade Families,

Please excuse the mid-summer interruption. Exciting things are happening and there’s news to report

Welcome Tina Tian

Please join me in welcoming Jack’s mother, Tina as our Sixth Grade Teacher Assistant. Tina volunteered in our class through much of the fifth grade year, and is very familiar with our students and classroom routines. She is smart, creative, proactive, a bundle of energy, and very quick to see a need and lend a hand.

Dear Families,

Due to a shortage of chaperones, the fifth grade class will not go to UC Davis this Wednesday.

The ELD students are still going because arrangements for them were made long before.

Thanks to ten families who donated a collected $610 toward our class field trip fund, we are well on our way toward covering the majority of expenses. If all families contributed at this rate, we would have about $1800. Please note that every penny donated goes directly toward your child's field trip.
