SBAC Schedule and Upcoming Events

Below you’ll find the SBAC schedule for our class.  Testing begins next week and I’m trying to make it a low key as possible – practice, group work, discussions … all easy going.  I hope this helps reduce anxieties!  The time allocated is not often fully used by students.  It’s helpful if they have an engaging book to read if they finish early.

Also, I’ve updated the Upcoming Events page with the latest dates and events, you may wish to check it out!

Volunteer Forms

Hello!  We’re entering the time of year where field trips sneak up on us!  I’ve posted dates for some of our upcoming events, and will continue to do so, and we’ll need chaperones!

If you have NOT already done so, you’ll need to complete a District Volunteer form.  The approval process takes some time, so if you’ve any interest in chaperoning with us – don’t delay in completing and submitting the form!

You can find the form by accessing the Colchester School District website.  Click on the tab for Human Resources, locate ‘forms’ on the sidebar to the left, and look for VOLUNTEER.

Our Flynn Theater Workshop

And just in time to help with our own classroom plays – we had a professional from the Flynn Theater drop by to coach us in our acting!

Reminder – we have our afternoon field trip to the Flynn tomorrow!  Kiddos need bag lunches!  We’ll picnic in the classroom at 10:45, leave for the Flynn at 11:15, and return to school around 1:30!
