Dr. King in 1964. (Public Domain)Happy MLK Day! On Friday, students read a play about Dr. King’s childhood and a non-fiction article about his legacy. In class this week students are continuing their new book clubs with daily and nightly reading assignments and finishing up their unit on multi-digit multiplication with a chapter test on Thursday, among other subjects. Here’s the homework for this week: Tuesday. Jan. 20; Wednesday, Jan 21st; Thursday, Jan. 22nd.

Congrats to out 500 Club members: Josiah, McKenna, JJ, Jaden F., Rayden, Hailee H., Jazmin, Kara, Jonathan J., Alyssa, Symphony, Sidney, and Molly. These kids have each logged at least 500 minutes of homework reading over the last five weeks. They’ll celebrate their endeavor with a 500 Club party at lunchtime on Thursday, Jan. 22nd. Meanwhile, students who logged 300 minutes or less during that period took home progress reports on Friday that must be signed by an adult.

Room 15 kids completed their radio plays: The Emperor’s New Clothes (starring Hailee H. as the Emperor and Emma as the Empress); The Sword and the Stone (starring Ricky as Arthur and Jordan as Merlin); and Cidro-ella (starring Sidney as Cidro).
