We're Done with the WASL-- Great Job F3!!! Now, Moving on.... :)

Great Job F3 for working SO HARD on the WASL. The scores do not come out until August, but I have a good feeling that kids did an excellent job this year. They took their time, went over their answers, and were thoughtful while taking the test. Way to go!

It's been so long! Sorry about that! What have we been up to? Well, we're just about finished with our Family Life and Sexual Health unit. Students are well versed in friendship skills, knowing about various kinds of families, decision making, the changes they are and will go through during puberty, the reproductive system, pregnancy and HIV/AIDS. I am very proud of this class for being so focused during this unit as well as their great maturity. We will be doing FLASH public service announcements which I will link to on this site in the next couple of weeks.

We are learning about colonial times and what led up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Students will be writing an essay due near the end of May about a public issue. They will need to take a stand on that issue and write about how that issue relates to individual rights or the right of the common good.

Lastly, I wanted to write about some events coming up for F3. First, our FLASH puberty night will be on May 7. This is a very important night to come to with your fifth grader. There will be sex educators from the King County here to guide you and your child in how to discuss issues regarding puberty and sexuality. I strongly encourage all parents to come on May 7. Also, on May 15, please join us for the annual Maple BBQ. It is a great time to sit out in the sun and enjoy food with the staff and students.

Thanks for your fantastic support of your children. It's been a pleasure to teach them.
