Latin Update – March 31

Salvete parentes!

It came to my attention that the word search on the back side of the Latin worksheet that was sent home was a little tricky, so I created a quick video explanation to help students get started. You can view it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ioCa4BnglV-A0iSfc9Npe_ezLMbToQgN/view?usp=sharing. Hopefully that helps! If not, please feel free to reach out to me and I will do my best to coach your student through it remotely!

Blessings,
Mrs. Maddox

Schoenherr 5th Grade Readiness Worksheet (for after conference)

Attached please find one more conference form that I would like your 4th grader to fill out.  As they reflect upon this form, I would like them to consider the goals that they set, as well as anything we discussed, then complete the paper to turn in to me upon their return to school.
I can’t believe that your 4th grader is almost a 5th grader!  This year has flown by, and it has been a delight to be their 4th grader teacher.
I am praying that we will all be back together again soon!
Blessings,
