Money and order forms are due February 20. Orders will be delivered to the school March 14. Attached is a copy of the order form. Every item in the brochure is $14. Thank you for your support of the APA Band Program!

The APA Jazz Band performs this Saturday February 10th at Pendleton High School at 5:40pm, admission is free! This is our only contest in the immediate area and the only free one to attend all year.

Good Afternoon!

We are starting a new story this week! It is called The U.S. Constitution and You. We are working on comparing and contrasting topics/ideas. We will specifically focus on comparing and contrasting the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution. Which means that we will be learning about the government with this story and it will be a combined reading and social studies unit.

We are continuing to learn about division and patterns in math groups. We are also taking a little time each day to prep for ISTEP. This will be done on the computer some days and on paper others.

We will finish up our electricity unit this week, too.

Please take a look below for a link to the newsletter and spelling words for this week. Thanks!
