Weekly Highlights

This week we welcomed a new member to our 5/6 team – Ms. Teasa. Teasa joins us as a former 6th grade teacher in the Indianapolis Public Schools. We worked to welcome Teasa to our community by creating slides about ourselves and about TPS/the 5/6 class.

We had two celebrations of our zine work this week… one on Tuesday with the whole class during school and another on Wednesday night. We are so proud of this work! We’ve hung it up in our classroom, so you can stop by sometime and see it there if you can’t make our last “celebration” – more details below.

We did completed a science lab related to genetics and have had some experiences with learning about DNA!


Art To Remember Orders are here! If you would like an early pick-up, before the items go home with students, you may come to the 3rd floor art room WEDNESDAY the 5th, from 4:00-5:15pm. All orders not picked up at this time will go home with your artists on Friday the 7th. If you would like me to hold items in the art room, for pick-up before the Variety Show on the 19th, let me know via email. If you have any other questions feel free to contact Ms. Sara at

The whole school will be going to see Cardinal Stage’s production of Beauty & the Beast on December 20th at 10am. We are asking that families send in $6.50 for their child to attend this performance. No child  will be prevented from going based on an inability to pay. If you are able to contribute extra money to cover the cost of someone else, please send that in with your child.

Zines at the library! We will have our zines on display in the gallery space at MCPL Monday-Thursday next week. Come by and take a look/read. We’ll send home copies of zines the following week, so please leave them up and let them be seen!

Questions to Ask Your Child at Home

  • How did the celebration of your zines go? What went well? What went not as well?
  • What is happening in CPR?
  • You’ve been working on a short interview project, what are you learning about?
  • What book are you reading during IDR? Is it interesting? Is it challenging? What do you plan to read next?
