Week of 11/13-11/17

Dear Parents: This week we will have 2 more evenings of Parent/Teacher Conferences on Wednesday, and Thursday. I will send reminder notes today of the dates and times.

Tic Tac Toe will be a bit different this week. The activities will be related to November. Thank You!

Conferences

Dear Parents: Parent/Teacher Conferences will begin this week on November 9. There will be 2 more days of conferences next week on November 15,16. You will be sent a reminder notice of when your Conference time is. Please remember to attend, because it will be our first real opportunity to review your child’s progress so far, and to review the Report Card. Thank you!

Spelling

Dear Parents: Please Remember that we will still be having the Spelling Test tomorrow (Fri. 11/3). The Tic Tac Toe activities will also still be due tomorrow, even though it is a half day.

Thank you to everyone for all of your help during the Field Trip, and for the Halloween Party. The students enjoyed both days very much!

Halloween Party

Dear Parents: A reminder that our Halloween Party will be on Tuesday, October 31 in the afternoon. The children will be watching a movie, and eating their treats. I do not need any parent helpers for the party, because the children really enjoy passing their own treats that they have brought to their classmates. However, please feel free to join us for the Halloween Parade beginning at 2:30 outdoors. This is a great chance for taking pictures of students in their costumes. Thank you!

Friday, and Upcoming Field Trip

Dear Parents: Please remember that this Friday, October 13 is a half day. Students will be dismissed at 11:45. We will not be able to have Library Checkout that day, so students may keep their books an extra week.

Also, please note that our first Field Trip will be on Monday, October 30. We are only allowed 8 parents per classroom, so please contact me through note or email if you wish to chaperone. I will accept the first 8 responses I receive. You must be willing to chaperone a small group of students, not just your own child, and you must have an approved background check on file in the office. Also, parents that are chaperones must drive themselves and their own child, and meet us at The Rainforest Cafe at Great Lakes Crossing. We need this to save room on the bus. The note about the Field Trip and the permission slip will be passed out soon.

Upcoming announcements about Halloween will also be given shortly. Thank you.

Upcoming Math Test

Dear Parents: There will be a Math Test on Tuesday, October 3rd. The test is a review of skills covered in First Grade such as Number Patterns, Place Value, and Comparing Numbers ( Greater Than/Less Than). A Study Guide will be sent home today to help students review for the test. This Study Guide will have the correct answers already on it. All students need to do is study it. Please help them with this. The questions on the test will not be exactly the same as the Study Guide, but very similar.

NWEA, and Gym Day

Dear Parents: Our NWEA testing will begin tomorrow, Monday, 9/18/17 in the afternoon. Please make sure students are well rested, and have eaten a healthy breakfast. I also will be assigning a Math sheet for homework every day in addition to the Spelling Tic Tac Toe. Please check your child’s planner every day for homework assignments. Also, our Gym Day has been changed to Thursdays. Please have students wear Gym shoes on that day. Thank you!

Welcome to my Blog

Dear Parents: Today I am sending home the first Spelling Homework called Tic Tac Toe. I have explained to the students how to do this, and the directions are also given on the sheet. This homework will be due every Friday, and students will be tested on the Spelling words every Friday also. Please help your child with the Tic Tac Toe activities, and to study for the test.

Please remember to attend Open House this Thursday at 6:00. See you soon!
