Sandwich Central School

scsI am sure you can appreciate the pace at which things are moving at this point. Spring is always a busy time of year, as it is full of after-school commitments and end of the year ceremonies. With that said, it is common for students of all ages to come home tired. We have a busy few weeks ahead of us, so don’t hesitate to call with any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to our Community BBQ on Thursday, June 8th. I know that the Association for School and Community (ASC) is already working hard on the details. I have hear rumors of climbing walls and live music.
I have been asked to remind families of two important items as we transition into spring; pick up/drop off procedures and dress code. Please encourage your child to remain on the sidewalk when using the front of the school for pick up or drop off. If you are using the side lot, it is important that students move directly to the grass and avoid walking through the parking lot. There has not been any close calls, but we want ensure the safest environment possible.
With warm (hot) weather suddenly upon us, clothing choices are changing quickly. Please work with you child to select outfits that are appropriate for learning and playground activities. Our goals are to minimize distractions and maximize safety. I am looking forward to the next few weeks and the challenges that will come along as we wind down this school year and prepare for the next. Enjoy the weather and I will see you on June 8th.

Each group is working on the following: Word Work (phonics), grammar, fluency, comprehension strategies and writing skills. The children enjoyed the variety of genre and the group discussions about the text.

Math: Rookies have been working very hard, and are just wrapping up Unit 8.  We have been studying two and three dimensional shapes and their attributes. Students are able to identify the number of faces, vertices, edges, right angles, and parallel lines a shape has.  In fact, they can even identify shapes without looking by feel or description!  The Rookies are also practicing ways to determine the total number of objects in equal groups and rectangular arrays. In doing this, they are building a foundation for learning multiplication next year.

hoagWow, what an awesome time we had last Thursday on our field trip to the Freedom Trail in Boston! Thank you to all the chaperones who joined us and to all families for sending their child prepared for a day out in the big city.  It sure was a highlight of our year!
The students worked diligently on Smarter Balance testing over the last few weeks.  Rookies were also hard at work this week on their NECAP science test.  We appreciate all the support from home with these tests, we know it’s a lot...thank you!

chapmanHere in the Sixth Grade we are feeling the end of our school year and the students’ time at Sandwich Central School fast approaching.  For many of us it is a bittersweet time.  While they are looking forward to their next adventure, they will certain have some fond memories from their time here at SCS.  Personally, I don’t think I can adequately express how fortunate I feel to have been able to work with this great group of kids.  The next five weeks are going to fly by, but I am going to enjoy every moment.
