Social Studies
After spring break the 5th graders will begin Chapter 14, The Constitution. Students will be learning about the events that lead to the creation of a Constitution and learn about the three branches of our government. We will also be learning about the idea of “Checks and balances”.

Language Arts
The students have done a wonderful job memorizing and presenting poetry this week! Did you know that some of the students even recited their poems over the intercom to inspire the rest of the school? We continue to work on the rough drafts of our Earth Day poems and will finish the final drafts and illustrations once we return from Easter break.

Students will attempt to move their vehicles using rubber band energy. They will evaluate the design of their vehicles for rubber band energy.

Καλη Ανασταση και Καλο Πασκα!

Happy Resurrection and Happy Easter!
