Planting seeds at Neighborhood House
May 2 - 6, 2016

   The Riedl family moved to our new apartment this weekend, hence the delay in sending out the newsletter. ;-) Filming for the Feel It video starts this week during recesses, so be sure to be thinking of fun ideas for what you want to do for this awesome 5th grade memory! Make it a great week, everyone!

Neighborhood House: Final Trips!

We only have one more trip to visit Neighborhood House! The second group will be going on Tuesday, May 10th 17th. Please remember that the students should wear good shoes to walk in, bring a rain jacket in case it rains on our 15 minute walk to Multnomah Village, and clothes they don't mind getting dirty when we are there volunteering. It would be great if all students would bring two items to donate (one for each trip). Let me know if you have any questions and click here for more info.

Measuring Academic Progress (MAP)

Spring MAP begins in a few weeks. Just a reminder, MAP is the standardized testing used at West Hills to track student growth as they continually learn more. To ensure results that accurately reflect student knowledge, it is important that each student has plenty of rest, has a good breakfast and lunch, and does not have interruptions (i.e. doctor appointment) during the time of their tests. Let me know if you have any questions about the following schedule for our class:
   - Monday, May 16th, 2:00-3:00pm
   - Wednesday, May 18th, 2:00-3:00pm
   - Thursday, May 19th, 2:10-3:00pm
   - Friday, May 20th, 2:00-3:00pm.
