Teacher News:
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend!

This week will be somewhat of a shortened week, due to our field trip this Friday! The students will not have a grammar test this week, and will have a shortened spelling list. Please dress for the weather, and have your child bring a sack lunch, as we will be eating at the farm.

I cannot believe it is the end of the first grading period! Time is flying! It has been a privilege getting to know you child! The second grading period is now upon us. The class will take a break from Social Studies, and now focus on Science & Health.

This week the students will be reading the weekly story Super Storms. (Lesson 8) The class will be working on main idea, visualizing, and compound words. The students will also be going over verbs, consonant diagraphs, and word endings.

The students are doing their math lessons on the Ipads. I am still only sending paper homework. A great benefit is that the students have their book at their disposal while doing their homework.

This being said, it is very important that the students have their Ipads charged and brought back to school. Thank you in advance!

Next week, we will start STAR testing again.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to 
contact me. My email is: dcochran@highland.k12.in.us

Sincerely,

Mr. Cochrane
