Week of March 2nd

March 2, 2015


Well I think I jinxed us.  I had bragged about how well this winter was going and how we hadn’t had to miss school due to weather.  Since then we’ve missed several days and depending on this next front coming in, we may not be through yet.  As of now, we won’t finish school until the week of Memorial Day.  I’m putting a sunshine border around this newsletter to think warm thoughts.

End of the Quarter

This is the last week of the quarter.  If your child has not met their AR goal, Friday is the last day! Grade cards will go home the end of next week.


In math the students will name the whole for a fraction; identify & create equivalent fractions; multiply fractions; and compare & order fractions.


In science the students will study light energy; its source and various uses.

Communication Arts

This week in communication arts the students will review using non-fiction text features to understand informational text as well as identifying fact and opinion.

Social Studies

In social studies the students will study the period of reconstruction after the Civil War and effect on Civil Rights for freed slaves.

Voter Registration and Bond Issue

As many of you know, the school district has placed an issue on the April 7th ballot asking the voters to approve the construction of a new Jr. High.  If you plan on voting you must be registered by March 11th, next Tuesday.  Registration cards can be picked up and returned here at the Benton office or at the Newton County Court House.  We encourage you to vote on April 7th.
