Dear families,
 
I hope you enjoyed your weekend! :) 
 
A few reminders:
  • Please check your child’s agenda nightly. This is your way of knowing what students are assigned to do for homework. STUDENTS are responsible for copying down homework correctly daily. Please sign to indicate that you have seen it and they have completed all necessary assignments. I will not check STAR binders daily so please encourage students to place parent notes in a place they will remember to turn them in. 
  • If there are any changes in your child's transportation, please bring a hand written note for I cannot guarantee that I will be able to check E-mail during the school day.
  • Please be sure to check Powerschool often! If you have not registered for Powerschool, PLEASE DO! :) 
  • Toys, including fidget spinners, are not permitted at school. According to the handbook, if toys are confiscated at school, parents must pick them up from the front office. Chapstick and other medications are not permitted at school without a note from a doctor. 
·      Late homework will NOT be accepted (lost, forgotten at home, forgotten at school, etc.)
MathThis week, we finish our lessons on time and transition into fractions (chapters 8 and 9).There will be a test on time on Wednesday. This test will include telling time to the nearest minute, finding elapsed time, finding start tine and finding end time. Notes can be found in students' math journals. Students should bring home notes each night to study. Please be sure that your child continues to study their multiplication facts. Without this foundation skill, students will struggle in many other areas of the math curriculum.  We will have multiplication pop quizzes throughout the year!

A few reminders:

 

  • Our class will be having a "Thanksgiving Feast" on Tuesday, the 21st! I will provide rotisserie chicken and a wonderful parent has offered to bring ham.

All you can eat pancakes, pictures with Santa, and ornaments will be sold. Classes are expected to create a basket to be sold in the silent auction. 50% of the proceeds to back into the classroom. I was thinking that this year we could do a gifcard basket because these have done very well in the past.

Dear parents/guardians,
 
I hope you had a great weekend! :)

 

A few reminders:
  • Please check your child’s agenda nightly. This is your way of knowing what students are assigned to do for homework. STUDENTS are responsible for copying down homework correctly daily. Please sign to indicate that you have seen it and they have completed all necessary assignments. I will not check STAR binders daily so please encourage students to place parent notes in a place they will remember to turn them in.
  • Homework will not be graded for accuracy, only for completion and following directions. However, in order to receive credit students will need to write in complete sentences, answer ALL questions, show all work (math), and answer in RARE form including page numbers (reading)
  • If there are any changes in your child's transportation, please bring a hand written note for I cannot guarantee that I will be able to check E-mail during the school day.
  • Please have your child bring earbugs/headphones to school if they have not done so already. As we begin to use the laptops, it is important that each student is able to listen to their own device.
  • Toys, including fidget spinners, are not permitted at school. According to the handbook, if toys are confiscated at school, parents must pick them up from the front office. Chapstick and other medications are not permitted at school without a note from a doctor.
  • Fall festival is coming up! I will be doing a soda ring toss game and would appreciate donations of 2 liter sodas if possible! :)
  • Please return all field trip permission forms as soon as possible!!
