May 26, 2017 News

Field Day is tomorrow!  Thank you in advance to those parents that are able to come watch us “in action.”  Lunch is 12:15-12:45pm (BBQ outside) if you want to stop by and the events will take place from 1-3pm.  The theme is “Land of 10,000 Lakes” so children are encouraged to dress in blue or Breck spirit wear.  Children will need to wear tennis shoes, and may bring their swimsuit if they wish.  Hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen are good things to bring, too. 

This week, we looked at the important geographical features of Minnesota and took our map quiz.  Everyone passed with flying colors!  Tomorrow, each group will make a plan for their cookie map.  Next Tuesday, we will form the cookies in the shape of Minnesota.  Then, we will decorate our cookie on Wednesday morning.  The children will pass one more “quiz” before they get to partake in the cookie! 

In math, we have learned about equivalent fractions and fractions of a set (i.e. 2/3 of 15).  We also have learned different ways to compare fractions.  We continue to use our multiplication and division fact knowledge in all our fractions work.  I am sure your child is tired of hearing me, “The facts are important!” 

There will be no school on Monday, May 29th for Memorial Day.

Next Wednesday (May 31) is also the BIG DAY where we will debut our Minnesota Amazing Race Destination movie.  We will meet you in the Theater at 1:30pm for this special event!  Immediately following the movie, we will head back to the classroom for our Portfolio sharing.  The children will be able to recap their year with you.  We have been busy bees working on a digital portfolio, which we will be able to show you as well.  The children will also share their paper Portfolios with you, as well as the various projects we have worked on this year.  Please bring in an extra bag to help pack up materials.  (A handled bag is best.)

Next Thursday, June 1st will be a non-uniform day.

Lower School Closing Exercises and Reception will be on Friday, June 2nd in the Chapel at 1:30pm.  Please pick up your child from the classroom (after the program) and then head outside for refreshments.  There are no buses or Extended Day following the program.  Attire for this event is semi-dressy.
