Upper Elementary November Newsletter
Thank you Joe and Valera Sovcik for designing and building a beautiful puppet theater which
the entire school can enjoy. We all enjoyed the puppet show book reports. Many children discovered new books which they would like to read.
Thank you Erin Crozier, Dawn Furlong and Dianne Medina for driving our class to the Explora
Museum in Albuquerque. It was a terrific trip and the children really enjoyed it. Parents, we are so glad you could make the time to meet with us during the conference days. Keeping communication strong, between the teachers and parents, gives great support to the
academic endeavors of your child.
We are now beginning to practice our melodrama, Grammar Gulch. The play will be held twice
on December 10th. The first show will be around 9:00 AM, and the second show around 1:45
PM. We will confirm these times closer to the event. Please reserve the date. Grammar Gulch
is a humorous, informative and engaging performance where the students are actively involved
in learning and remembering the rules of grammar.
In social studies, the children have completed researching and outlining their Medieval topics.
They are now planning lessons and activities which they will teach to their classmates. These
lessons will be presented, December 16th to 19th, the last week of school before winter break.
