Newsletter and Spelling List – Week of April 27-May 1
Mr. Lucas Newsletter
Friday, April 24, 2015
Since they arrived last week, our caterpillars have been getting bigger and bigger. It is amazing how fast they grow! In another week or so we will see some start to change to the chrysalis stage. We got to look at them up close with hand lenses this week.
Field Trips Coming Up…
On Monday, May 11, we will take an all-day field trip to the HealthWorks museum in South Bend. We can only take a limited number of parents, so if you are interested in going on May 11, then please let me know. First come, first served 🙂
Also, on Friday, May 15, we will take a short field trip up to the high school for their Food for America day to learn about agriculture in Indiana. No parents needed for this hour-long trip.
On May 26, we will walk to Syracuse Lakeside Park for the afternoon.
Jars Needed for Mother’s Day Craft
We need glass jars for a Mother’s Day craft we will be doing the week before Mother’s Day. Small, jelly-sized jars work best, but other sizes will do. Please clean out the jars and remove the labels before sending in. This will save us a lot of time. We need the jars by Monday, May 4. (Also, if you have more than one jar you can send in for students who can’t bring one, that would be great!)
Cool State Facts Video
Our students worked with their fifth grade Warrior Buddies earlier this year to create the artwork and write an interesting fact about a state. That video is now available at our LucasLodge website and on YouTube. Check it out!
NWEA Tests This Week
We took the Spring NWEA tests in the computer lab this week. We took the Reading test on Tuesday and the Math test on Thursday. Everyone worked really hard at doing their best. This test will let us see how everyone has progressed this year in reading and math.
