Isle a la Cache Field Trip
Field trip forms for Isle a la Cache went home today (3/18). Our team is going on Friday, April 26th. Payment is due by April 5th. Students will need a disposable bag lunch for this field trip. Please make sure your student dresses for the weather that day.

ILLINOIS ASSESSMENT OF READINESS (IAR)
The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) assesses progress of students in grades 3-8 in meeting the Illinois Learning Standards in English language arts and mathematics. Testing will begin in April. Team 5A schedule is below.

Wednesday, April 3- ELA 1 (10:55-12:55)
Thursday, April 4- ELA 2 (10:55-12:55)

Tuesday, April 9- Math 1 (9:15-10:45)

Students may bring gum or mints during IAR testing. Please make sure your student has a working pair of headphones. As always it is important that students get an adequate amount of sleep the night before testing as well as a healthy breakfast. We encourage students to do their best everyday and I appreciate your partnership in helping students achieve academic success.

THEME THURSDAY AT CHELSEA
Stay tuned for April/May themes.

Don't forget every Friday is Chelsea Spirit day and wear you Chelsea colors!

SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS
Each month students will receive a Scholastic Book Club flyer. If you are interested in ordering books, please use our class code to access our class online. Our class code is Q8JND. I love the look on students' faces in the morning when they come to school and see their brand new books on their desks!! If you have any questions or difficulties, please don't hesitate to contact me.

NO PEANUT PRODUCTS FOR SNACK
Due to several students on our team with peanut/nut allergies, we are insisting that students not bring any snack that has peanut products. Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation.
