May 6 – 10

Almost all of the students were able to complete their May writing project.  Hopefully, they will be sharing their writing with you soon.  We also had a special writing celebration on Thursday.  Students that have been part of Lincoln Public School were given their writing folders with a collection of writing from kindergarten through fifth grade.  There were a lot of laughs as students shared their stories and illustrations.  It was fun for the students to see their growth and creativity!

Our last literature group of the year met on Thursday, but I encourage students to continue reading.  This is a wonderful opportunity to choose new books or revisit some of your favorites.  Two librarians from the public library came to visit Scott Middle School on Wednesday to let us know about their summer reading program.  Check out their webpage to sign up!  The public library is also looking for volunteers to help with the elementary reading program.

Next week will the unit 6, week 6, testing.  Students will take a reading comprehension test, a grammar test, a vocabulary test, and write a Text Dependent Analysis(TDA).

Tuesday,, May 14,  Scott Middle School will be lucky to have a local author, Phillipa Stusiuk, visit our school! Ms. Stusiuk describes herself as a writer, rover, animal and plant lover, Philippa has lived in Zimbabwe (where she’s from), South Africa, South Korea, Mexico, New York, and Copenhagen, Denmark. She grew up with Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Bichon Frises, Dachshunds, and mutts. She now lives in Lincoln, Nebraska with her husband, two daughters, and two cats. The Wonderful Whippet of Winifred Weatherwax is her first novel.

May 17, students will check in their Chromebooks for the summer.  Please make sure to bring all the parts including the strap for the case and the charger.  Each student will be issued the same computer in the fall when we return to school.

We all know summer is right around the corner, but finish strong!  There is still work to be done!
