As part of our accreditation process, we will have visitors on Monday and Tuesday doing a site visit. Make sure to make them feel welcome if you see them in the hallways or classrooms.
The 5th grade students are going to the elementary building today (Friday) to perform their musical review.
Next Friday, April 13, they will go to Lutheran South in the morning to play trivia games with other area Lutheran school 5th graders.
This week’s memory, week 30 is due Monday April 9th.

This past week students finished up lessons 90 (Mr. Akerson Pace) and 116 (Self-pace) The most recent tests will be graded and entered over the weekend.
The material is getting harder! Be diligent in your study habits, work ethic and get that homework done!
Next week will be spent doing prep for the achievement tests. These tests are one good measure of our student progress. This is just another piece of data. While I value the information gained and do use the results in various ways, I do not see them as THE MEASURE of student progress.
One thing I tell them is that some of the questions asked on the math tests cover topics not yet taught in our 5th grade curriculum. That is the reason I give a “crash course” in some topics next week. We will do this through breakouts, game and practice problems.
Most students completed this week’s assignment of “Inanimate Easter”. They chose an object that was in the Easter story that could not talk and wrote how it may have reacted to scripture events from Holy Week. Ask your child to share their 5 slides with you! They did a great job!
