We've Got a Long Way to Go (and a Short Time to Get There!)

As I was sitting back and pondering the rest of the year this weekend, I realized a few things...
       ~ The Washington, D.C. Parent Meeting is 3 days away (Please  make sure you're in attendance!)
       ~ Spring Break is 8 Days Away
       ~ The trip to Washington, D.C. is 25 days away
       ~ The end of the year KPREP Test is 44 days away
       ~ The last day of Elementary School is 60 days away!  Wow! Time has really flown by this year.
       ~ And as if that wasn't enough: the first day of Middle School is 139 days away!

   If you're attending the trip to Washington, D.C., please make sure that you contact the school to double check that your background checks are up to date.  They take a while to go through, so please make every effort to make it happen ASAP!

   The end of Fifth Grade is fast approaching, and we still have 150 years of American History to cover.  There's a lot of content that we need to go over, but we'll make it happen.  It's just going to take a lot of effort!  Also, this week will be a "Scrimmage Week" here at Simmons.  We, your teachers, want to see what you remember from this year so far.  Get ready... it'll be tough, but doable!  
   Monday --> Reading
   Tuesday --> Mathematics
   Wednesday --> On-Demand Writing
