Halloween Party

Posted on

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that Halloween is already upon us.  I have created a sign up genius for our Halloween celebration.  You should be receiving it shortly or you may have received it by now.  Our Party will take place the morning of Oct. 31.   Parents who signed up to volunteer as helpers (during open house) received a note from me today in their child’s folder.  We are in need of items for the party.  Please sign up on signupgenius.com for the party items needed.  All items are due on or before Friday, Oct. 31.  Children are not allowed to wear costumes to school per school policy.  Your child may wear orange and black or a Halloween themed shirt.

Reminder:

Field trip money and permission slips are due October 28.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Dear Families,

I have received one book order for this month.  I will wait until this Friday, if you would like to order books.  Scholastic has great deals on books for your children.  Our classroom also receives free books with each order.

We are working on the letter R this week.  We will be creating a letter R craft in place of a snack.

In math we are working on number recognition, number writing sorting objects, and patterns.

Be sure to send jackets with your child each day.  It has been cold outside during recess and many children have not been bringing in jackets.

Library books are due Friday.

Popcorn sale Friday.

Thank you to Mrs. Bierschbach, Mrs. Dixon, Mrs. Hernandez, and Mrs. Lane for sending in extra classroom supplies.  The students and I appreciate your generosity

Have a great week!

Dear Families,

We will be working on the letter B this week.  At the end of the week I would like to serve a snack for the letter B.  I am in need of 4 parents to donate 6 bananas each for Friday’s snack.  If you are able to donate please let me know.

October book orders are due Friday, Oct 17.

Each child needs to bring in a variety of coins to include pennies, quarters, nickels, and dimes.  A total of 15- 20 coins.  Please place in a baggie with your child’s name and send to school on or before Friday. Oct. 17.  We will be using them for a math activity on Friday.

Have a great week!
