It is with a heavy heart that we bid a fond adieu to Saba today.  Saba and her family are leaving tomorrow to return to living in Pakistan.  We wish Saba’s whole family all the best.  It is a good moment to reflect on how  fortunate we are to live in such a diverse place as Berkeley and to be able to  have our children benefit from being part of such a unique and vibrant community.  Take care Saba!  We will miss you.

In Mathematics today we spent a little time converting measurements on maps to real-world distances using different map scales.  Students may write about a map from home tonight and explain the scale of the map for enrichment.

Math Test retakes and Vocabulary Tests were passed out today.  Make sure students are showing them to you.


  1. Language Arts:  Vocabulary: Silent/ Sounded Consonants Worksheet
  2. Mathematics: Page 79 : Map Scales
  3. Reading: Read for 20 minutes and fill out pink reading log.
  4. Other: (Some students) Finish rough draft of limerick, be ready for a peer review tomorrow.
