**Science**students learned more about Adaptations through reading comprehension activities. The focus has been on both physical and behavioral adaptations of people and animals.

Students took the

**Science MCAS**these past 2 days so they are all set until next year!

**Foreign language**preference letters should be turned in to me as soon as you can.

**Spring Photo Shoot**. You have the option to purchase following the directions on the flyer. Or, you may return the pictures on Monday.

Next Friday we will visit

**Old Sturbridge Village**. Students should bring a bagged lunch. Most of the ground is dirt so depending on weather students may want to wear a pair of old sneakers. Students will walk around in groups of 4-5 students per adult.

Thanks,
