“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments

Dear Parents,

As you know, we started testing the students using the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS).  This week, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will test Monday - Friday from 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM.  (The 3rd graders are the only ones testing on Friday morning.)  It is most important that the students are rested each day.  I have suggested to the 3rd graders that they go to bed each night early enough to get a good night's sleep.  It is very important to arrive at school on time.  We begin the testing at 8:30 AM each morning.

We still have our "beans-in-the-bag" project and have been recording our observations.  Be sure to ask your 3rd grade scientist what has happened with his or her beans over this length of time.

The students have been researching 3 different Northwest Coastal Tribes.  They have been working in three groups as they collect information.  They have begun to use their notes to make charts that they can share with the other groups.  These should be up for you to see during our conference days.

Special Note:  Students need to wear their full uniforms each day.  (Some are forgetting the OLL sweatshirt, vest, fleece, or sweater.)

Mrs. Marshall
