The LAST week : (

Thank you for coming out to the Writer's Museum last Thursday. We had a great turn out.  Also, thank you for providing snacks--we had some very hungry writers! 


We will have our "Homework Completion" celebration this Thursday, June 27th. If the weather permits, the party will include water games outside on the field. Please send a change of clothes in case your child gets too wet.

A letter was sent home about this week on Friday. Check your child's backpack please. If you would like to provide a snack on Friday, please email me at lchatterton@wcpss.net

Talent Show:

You are invited to attend the annual "Lake Myra Talent Show" this Friday, June 28th from 10:00-11:00 a.m. in the "gym-torium."  Sydney is performing! Can't wait!

June 24th- June 28th:

This week, we will cover the following in each subject...and much, much more!

  • Produce complete sentences when appropriate to task and situation in order to provide requested detail or clarification
  • Write narratives in which a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events is re-counted and told in details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide a sense of closure
  • With guidance and support from adults and peers, focus on a topic and strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing


  • Interpret maps of the school and community that contain symbols, legends and cardinal directions
