Maternity Leave News
I hope that everyone is having a great week! As you may know, May 19th is my last day. I am excited to share that Ms. Mary Gallery will be taking on my maternity leave. Below is a note from Ms. Gallery.
I am excited to be rejoining the Coonley community and working with the children and families in fifth grade. I came to Coonley in 2008 as the first-grade teacher in the new gifted program. Two years later I moved to third grade, where I taught until my son was born in 2014. While I’ve mostly been at home with him, I have also worked as a substitute here at Coonley and covered leaves for Ms. Heineman and Ms. Parsons last spring. I will be working closely with Ms. Sugrue and the rest of the fifth-grade team to ensure that the end of year is as engaging and enjoyable as it has been so far. I look forward to getting to know all of you this spring.

Please join us as we “show” off our students’ excellent work. Families are welcome to visit the Multi-Purpose Room from 8:45 a.m. - 9:10 a.m. on Friday, May 12th, to view the projects. Students will share their research findings and propose solutions for making our community an even better place!
Where: Multi-Purpose Room
When: Friday, May 12th
Time: 8:45 a.m. - 9:10 a.m.
Here are a few due dates for upcoming projects...
* The Robert Crown field trip is next Thursday. Please remember to bring a sack lunch for the day.
* On Tuesday, the 5th grade students will take the ISBE Science assessment during their science class period. This test does not attribute to fourth quarter grades, Academic center, or high school entrance.
* Update from Mrs. Sugrue:
Computer Science Community Research Projects are coming together nicely! Students should be finished collecting data and are now analyzing that data. For the next two weeks, students will be working on finalizing their reports as well as constructing their final projects. Students have the option of creating a model of the suggested solution OR a tri-fold board presenting their findings. Also, creating a website, blog or video that can be used to educate others on their topic. Students will have class time to work on these, but they will also need to dedicate time at home.
Please remember to mark your calendars for May 12th from 8:30-9:00 a.m. for a viewing of this projects in the Multi-Purpose Room.
Update from Mrs. Butala:
On Monday, your child came home with two permission slips. One to attend the field trip to Robert Crown (4/27) and another to participate in the Coonley Sexual Health Unit after the field trip. I will be hosting a parent Q & A on Tuesday, April 25th at 8:00 am in room 217 to review specific lesson objectives and answer any questions parents have about the curriculum.
