    In my last e-mail for the year I would like to thank you all for sending me such great kids. I had a great year with the kids and think they are well prepared for what comes next. Have a safe and fun summer. Take time to read and enjoy the great outdoors. xo MCH

    Math - Mr. West

    Hello everybody! I have had a great year with your children and have really enjoyed being their math teacher. I am retiring at the end of the school year and this has been a delightful group of children to be with for my last year as a teacher. Thank you and farewell.

    Social Studies -- Ms. Odermatt

    We've concluded our WWI unit and will learn this week how the Treaty of Versailles created conditions for Hitler's rise to power. We will spend the next 2 weeks focusing on WWII and the Holocaust with the final test scheduled for the last week of May. Here we go on the home stretch!!

    Science - Mr. Boler

    Students will receive their Populations and Ecosystems test back on Wednesday. Completed Test make-up forms must be turned back in (with the test) no later than Monday June 3rd.

    On Tuesday and Wednesday we will be learning more about organism adaptations by viewing "Voyage to the Galapagos Islands". Students will also do one more observation of their Milkweed Bug Habitats.

    On Thursday and Friday, students will construct their rockets which will be launched next Monday June 3rd. If you are available, we could use more volunteer eyes at McRae park. There will be a morning group (10am to 11:45) and an afternoon group (1 to 2:20pm). If you can help out at either or both sessions please email me at: leon.boler@mpls.k12.mn.us
