5th Grade - Bennion
Scholars will be bringing home a Hope of America consent form today. You will need to fill out the form and return it to school by February 14th in order for your scholar to participate in the Hope of America program . In addition to this form, you will need to go to hopeofamerica.org to register and pay for the program. The cost is $10, plus an optional fee if you would like to order a dvd of the program. To pay online, you may need to click on the paypal button in order to get to the secure payment page. Once you are there, you can either pay paypal, or use a credit or debit card. If you have any problems registering online, please let me know so I can help you. If you would like your scholar to participate, but the fee is a financial hardship, please send me a private email so we can find a way for your scholar to participate.
In other news, ask your scholar about the Jamestown simulation game we played in Social Studies and what happened when they made various choices. Also ask them what they have learned about magnetism this week. They should be able to tell you a lot! Finally, ask them what the RACE acronym stands for in our Informative writing unit. These scholars continue to impress me with their desire to learn!
