Busy Week!

I wanted to let you all know that next week we'll have a lot of things going on!  It is a short week, with no school on Friday the 21st.  It is an early start for your spring breaks!

On Monday, March 17th we will be taking a Science test.  We are filling out the study guide on Friday and so you should see that coming home for the weekend.  I will be posting that on my blog too.

On Wednesday, March 19th we will be going to the Civic Center for a Symphony Orchestra Concert. We will only be gone from school for a little over an hour, 12:45-2:15ish.  This should be a unique experience for our students.

We will also be doing a lot of final assessments for the 3rd quarter next week.  It is hard to believe that after spring break we will only have one more quarter left of the school year!  My how it has flown by!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to call me at the middle school, 472-5019, or email me at  melinda.lyon@fairfieldsfuture.org.

Hope everyone enjoys their spring break!  My fingers are crossed for warmer weather!

Mrs. Lyon

Spelling for Jan. 6th

We will not be having a spelling list for the week of January 6th.  With missing a day and having a late start this week, I decided not to do spelling.  We are writing stories this week and our list is always a shorter one, so I thought it would be nice to take a week off.  We will have a new list next week. Be on the look out for it next Monday.
Hope everyone is glad to be back at school.  I sure am!
