Grades 5-7 Mr. Hanson

Welcome Parents and Students! 


An important field trip notice went home today (6/2/17).  Due to safety concerns going on at Evergreen we are switching our end of the year field trip to Tolmi State park.  See notice for more information, or contact your child’s homeroom teacher. 




A big thank you for all that you are doing at home to help your child’s young mind prep (and cope) with dealing with state testing.  The students have been working so hard.  Very proud of them!  Here is a list of items coming for the month of June:

We are reading a play adaptation of the “Phantom Tollbooth.”  Not only are we reading this, but we are going to act this out with actual props and some costume work.  I’m hoping this turns out well as I’ve never done this quite to this extent.  It should be fun though.  Students have parts to try and memorize.

Homework:  Memorize and read your parts.  Read 30 min.  

7th: Reading Writing Lab: 

We are working on creating a civilization!  Don’t forget to work on that promotion slide show.
