This week during specials students are practicing and preparing for their Recorder Concert Thursday night. They will need to bring their recorder every day this week.
In Social Studies, students will continue to learn about The New England Colonies. Students are encouraged to bring home their journals throughout the week to review the notes in preparation for a quiz next week.
A few reminders:

Six Flags reading log- due Feb, 27th
*Please remember that weekly graded papers (red) folder should be returned by Thursday. If you need me to make a copy of an assignment so that you have extra time to look over something, return the paper with a note.
If your child is participating in the science fair, all projects are due Tuesday morning in the media center.
We are offering the “Wordy 30”challenge one more time this year. It includes extra days at the end to give students time to make up any days missed. The prize will be a “book of their own choice” from the great stash earned for us by the Jonquil Golden K and retrieved from the Scholastic Warehouse. Sheets went home last week.

Have a great week!

Welcome back! I enjoyed my days off with Wyatt, but I am ready to begin teaching again and resuming a normal schedule.
From Mrs. Powell- The science test was supposed to be Tuesday, however, due to us being out on snow-cation, I have decided to give the students the option of when they wanted to take the test. Some have studies hard over the break and wanted to do it right away. Some felt like they needed one more night of studying. So, you can ask your child whether or not they took the test today or are planning on taking it tomorrow.
Annually, the Georgia Department of Education requests parent input regarding the climate at each Georgia School. They collect this input through Parent Surveys. You may complete this 24-item survey on a computer, smart phone, or tablet. Your participation in this survey helps King Springs. Thank you for taking time to answer the questions.
We have been reviewing the scientific process with students this week to prepare them for the science fair project. I completed a mini experiment to get students thinking about ideas, we also visited the media center to look at examples from last year. If students complete a science fair project they will receive extra credit through one classwork grade of 100 percent added to their average. The extra-credit science fair project is due Tuesday, Jan. 24. STEM Night is Thursday, Jan. 26, and the complete Science Fair projects will be on display that night in the Media Center.
Please see the attached information about a Relay for Life fundraiser next week!
Happy New Year!
Tomorrow is the first day back from the holiday break. I hope that you were able to enjoy some time with family and friends.
