Helping Houston



I am very touched by how many of you guys jumped at the opportunity to donate to this class. The 5th grade class at Pilgrim Academy I mentioned has set up the following links so that we might be able to donate to help them raise money for what they specifically need.  


Please share on Facebook, twitter or other social media platforms since donors choose will double donations up to $50 by adding the promo code LIFTOFF at checkout for the next 4 days. The more people we get to donate, the better!! 


Below you will find the links Mr. Abarca has created that will give you a detailed play-by-play of what he needs for the classroom. Any little bit helps!! 


Thanks SO MUCH for supporting these kiddos. You guys ROCK!

The Relatives Came Project

Hi all,
Attached please find a copy of the class project expectations for our campus wide mentor text The Relatives Came.Our class is creating a class quilt about different experiences visiting relatives at their homes. 
Part 2 is what I need your help on...please get with your kiddos asap and discuss what they would like to contribute of the options. Help them type up a family recipe OR send with them a photo of a favorite family event.
These projects are due Thursday. I know, late notice, but it is going to look AMAZING in the hallways come Parent Orientation, right??
Thanks for being flexible. If you have any issues, please feel free to email me!
All the best,

Football Fun Run


This is such a fun opportunity to promote independent reading. The Football Fun Run takes place on Friday, September 29th this year. Students who have earned enough AR points get to SPRINT through the giant, inflatable helmet before kick off at the Cole football game! 5th graders need to have earned ONLY 6.5 pts in order to qualify this year! We begin AR reading tomorrow. Students have until September 21st to earn points. 


Get those kids reading at home!! Let's see how many 5th graders we can get on that field!!

All the best,

Mrs. B 



 Good evening,
