After two weeks, I'm back with the latest information for Room 226! Can you believe we have just 15 days of school remaining? These next three weeks are packed with activities and learning.
2nd graders can shop at the Fisk School Store on Thursday, June 1 before school. Items for sale typically include school supplies. Friday, June 2 is a make-up day for all students to shop.
We spent most of May working on writing poetry, so this week students will be sharing their poetry in a "coffee shop" format reminiscent of the 1960s. That's way cool, daddio!
We've just about wrapped up our end-of-year assessments. Students completed the online i-Ready assessments in math and reading, a developmental spelling inventory, and reading Benchmark assessments. It's wonderful to see the growth the children have made this year!
At a special assembly on Tuesday, we say good-bye to three wonderful staff members of Fisk - Mrs. Field, Mr. Ron (Hunt), and Mrs. Whiting. We thank them all for their dedication to the students, staff, and Fisk community.
