Thursday, September 25, 2014, 8:15-12:00

Children's Theatre of Charlotte/The Giver

300 E. 7th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202

 

The 6th grade class will be going to see the play The Giver based on the book by Lois Lowry.  With this being the assigned summer reading, we have been having great class discussions in anticipation of this event.  We will leave campus at 8:15 and return at 12:00 to have lunch and attend afternoon classes.  We have enough drivers for this trip.  If you have any questions, please contact cpackard@woodlawnschool.org . 

The 7th grade Curriculum Overview for parents and students will be on Wednesday from 2:00-3:10.  Please note below which room to go to first:

Thursday, October 16 -Fractions, Decimals, & Percentages Test- Math

October 23 5:15-8:306th Grade Fall Social - Carrigan Farms Hayride and Bonfire

On October 23 Woodlawn's 6th grade class will travel to Carrigan Farms for our fall social!  Our class will take a hayride to enjoy the fall colors, smell the sweet hay and enjoy each other's company.  Then we will roast hot dogs and some-mores on a bonfire and enjoy twilight.  What a wonderful way to enjoy the crisp fall weather and all your classmates!  

There will not be costumes for the 6th grade social.  After discussion with the parents, we decided to take the safest approach.  Since we go on a hay ride and have a marshmallow/wiener roast around a bonfire, thin/flimsy Halloween costumes with capes and such are not compatible with prickly hay and fire.  It will be cold out, so students will be wearing jackets anyway!

Please look for a sign-up genius invitation in early October from room parent Jodee Berini to provide food and drink for the party. Teacher chaperones: Denham, Packard; Parent driver/chaperones Berini(4), Lolla(4), Polsky(5), Liantonio(5), Trovato(4)6:45-8:30, Leonard(4)5:15-6:45.
