These are examples of quotes used in a sentence:

Christopher knew he could not live with his father because he was afraid of him. Christopher wrote, “Father had murdered Wellington. That meant he could murder me” (Haddon 122).

Christopher was able to face his fear of strange places because it was balanced with his fear of his father. He explained he was both “frightened of being far away from a place I was used to” and “frightened of being near where Father lived”, “so the total fear remained a constant” (Haddon136).

Newsletter week of May 29, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope everyone has enjoyed their long weekend. Thank you to those of you who have served in the military. As the wife of a retired Army officer and mother of 2 soldiers I know firsthand your sacrifices.

The state SOL tests continue this week for 3rd-5th grades. We will have to be exceptionally quiet due to testing in our pod and when walking to lunch.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie

Week 37

Tuesday, May 29, 2018, is Field Day.  We will have a math review in the morning before we travel as a group to the Bounce House.  This will be our last review before the math SOL.

This Wednesday, May 30, 2018, we will take the math SOL test.  I would highly recommend using IXL to practice the skills that you may need to work on before this test.  Use the Student Progress and Trouble Spots under the Analytics section of IXL once you are logged in to see where you could benefit from additional practice.

The only homework for this week is in social studies.  A copy is posted on the homework link above and it is due on Friday, June 1, 2018.

We will begin working on our social studies U. S. states and capitals project on Thursday, May 31, 2018.
