PowerPoint Presentations  

A new portion of this web page is now open!  In RTI, the research group did a project in which they were to research a topic of their choice in a small group.  They were to, then, create a PowerPoint presentation and present it to the class.  The students did a great job on these, and they are now availbe for you to view under the PowerPoint Presentations section of the web page.

2nd Quarter Science Projects  

Today, I assigned the 2nd Quarter Science Projects.  Your child has a description of the assignment and a rubric to know what is expected.  This is a two-part project.  Their first part is creating a solar system.  We will not have time to work on his part in class.  However, the 2nd part - a PowerPoint presentation - will be completed exclusively in class in small groups.

 

Your child will receive two separate grades for this.  One grade will be for the solar system itself.  The other grade will be for the PowerPoint.  The PowerPoint's grade will come from 2 sources - first, the grade from me.  This grade will be on the presentation itself and how it falls in line with the rubric; all team members will receive the same grade from me.  The second source will be a grade from their peers in a peer evaluation packet.  I will average the grade from me and the grades from their peers for the final grade on the PowerPoint presentation.  The description, rubric, and evaluation have been saved in the Forms sections for your convenience.

Burger King Nights  

Changes have been made to our long tradition of Burger King nights. Burger King is no longer allowing schools to have individual nights for receipt collections for fundraising.  Elementary school nights will be on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. beginning today. We encourage you to support our school by going on Tuesdays.  You will need to inform the cashier the name of our school is Community Elementary School and make sure it is written on the receipt in order for our school to receive funds.  We appreciate your continued support and hope you have a great evening.

Baby Photos  

I would like to share with you about our 5th grade yearbook project.  In the 5th grade section of the yearbook, we put your child's 5th grade picture next to their baby picture.  The side-by-side comparison makes for a great 5th grade section.  (Fair is fair.  The 5th grade teachers submit baby pictures that are in there as well.)  If you would please send your child with a baby picture, it will be scanned and returned either the same day or the next day.  If you'd rather not send a printed photograph, you are welcome to email the photo to me.
