Dear Parents,

   The children are learning a lot and having fun here at Eastern!  The students are discovering a great deal about problem solving,

study skills, technology and a whole host of interesting science topics.

    The children are also working very hard preparing for the Next Generation assessments in math, and science.  These tests will

include higher level thinking questions, multi-step math questions and extended response questions. Please encourage your child to

look over their interactive notebooks in each subject area nightly to solidify their knowledge and give them confidence. The dates for

the AIR assessments have been scheduled.  The 5th Grade math assessment is scheduled for Wednesday April 16th and the

science assessment will be given on Wednesday May 3rd

   In Social Studies class, the students have been learning all about exploration and colonization of North  and  South America.  The

children learned  about many differnt explorers, where they explored and how they influenced the Americas.  The students also

learned about colonization of North America and how these colonists and what they brought to the Americas influence our

society even today.  Talk to your child about explorers and how they influenced our culture!  

  In science class, the students are learning all about light and they will soon learn about sound energy.   The children learned

how light travels and how it can be reflected, refracted and absorbed.  They also investigated how colors of light mix to make other

colors of light.  They enjoyed discovering what happens when you shine one wavelength of light on a colored object.  Ask your child

what happens!

   I hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather and getting outside and enjoying nature with your family.  If you have any questions

or concerns, please contact me here at Eastern.

Thank you,

Mrs. Freundlich
