Boosterthon!! : Boosterthon will last from today until next Thursday. I ask that everyone sign up at funrun.com. You are not required to get pledges but our class gets a reward if we all register tonight :)! However, I do hope that you are able to get some pledges in order to raise money for our school! Students get prizes based on the money they are able to raise. This program has amazing benefits to Dolvin and I hope everyone has fun!!

We have just started learning about WWII. We will discuss the causes of this war as well as the main events and people involved in the war. While this is a great unit full of historical rich content, it is also a very sad unit with some events that have effected some students and their cultures. Please have a discussion with your child about respect for history and how it had negative impacts on several cultures. Students are to be respectful throughout the unit. Our test date for this unit will be announced later.
Check back every week for a new post with information about the coming week.
