Student Class News: By Luke and Jake

Tomorrow we will have PARCC test and we get to chew gum. Today Henry, Luke, Kit, Aaron and Ava survived “Hurricane Jeff,” (it was soooo windy during recess!)  New book coming out tomorrow called I Survived the PARCC Test, selling at the plastic playground.   We have at least two weeks of the PARCC test. We are practicing for the play, which is going good. We painted some candies for the witch’s candy house.
