We begin the month of thankfulness and cooperation. I certainly am grateful for a lovely day of community on Saturday. It was a spirited and joyful carnival. I loved seeing all of the smiles, hearing all of the laughter and seeing all of our families gathered together in celebration. When I attend events like these at ACS, I am reminded just why I am here in Lebanon. I love being a part of such a joyful and loving community. Thank you for making this my home away from home!
Time seems to be flying by and I anticipate it will only go faster with all of the holidays approaching. There is much to celebrate and we have a great deal to be thankful for in 5D. Please be sure to check our calendar for upcoming events.
Please note that we have a Place Value summative on Thursday November 5th. Thus far, our children have been showing a deepening level of comprehension in math. Their formatives reflect their hard work and their learning. I anticipate the summative will reveal more of the same.
Our Social Studies (mapping) summative will be on Tuesday November 10th.
Progress reports will be coming soon - conferences as well. (November 16th)
I’d like to give a special thanks to Ms. Venema for providing delightful decorations in our hall and delicious Halloween treats for us on Friday. We certainly had a terrific holiday!
Please note that there will be no school on Friday. I wish you all a marvelous week.
Ms. Amy Branch

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to travel the world and to make a difference in other people's lives. I truly didn't believe I would become a teacher though; however, I am so glad that I am 5D's teacher! I am originally from Washington state but have enjoyed living in both West Africa and Lebanon. I am very blessed to have lived such an incredible life thus far.
