Boston!
HAPPY FRIDAY!

     Summer is getting closer and closer and we are enjoying our last few days together. We are continuing our read-a-loud, My Brother Sam Is Dead. With each chapter, the kids are hooked and can't wait to see what will happen to Timothy.
     On Wednesday we loaded the bus and headed to Boston to culminate our colonization unit. What a wonderful day! As we ventured along the Freedom Trail, groups of students took center stage and became the teachers who taught us about the historical background of each site we visited. We ended our day in the Old North Meeting house were the students role played a debate between Patriots and Loyalists which led to the Boston Tea Party. We have some great future actors in our midst. 

     As our week ended, the 5th grade students visited the 6th grade classrooms and teachers for step-up day. The 6th grade teachers introduced themselves and answered many questions to help the students feel comfortable about 6th grade in the Fall.


REMINDERS:
*   Monday is our Yearbook assembly. Anyone who ordered a yearbook will receive their book at the end of the day on Monday. If you did not order a yearbook but would like one, please call the HMS office.
*   Our last day of school is next Wednesday, June 17th. School will dismiss at 11:00.
