Also, we have completed all out modules for the currentworkbooks we have been using, so students are bringing hometheir classroom workbook and homework one. They do not needto do anything in these books, but I told them they are greatpractice books, especially for over holiday break.

Good morning parents,

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
Here is some updates about our busy week.

***Wednesday afternoon in our school parade starting at 2:30. Students will parade their costumes around our school track. Here are some reminders for Wednesday:

1. Please send your child in his/her regular school clothes to avoid them getting anything on their costumes at lunch.

2. Please send their whole costume in a bag that is clearly marked with your child’s name on it. Oftentimes students have the same size in the same costume.

3. Please make sure your child can change into his/her costume on their own.

4. Please do not send students to school with toy weapons, even if it is part of their costume. They will not be able to have these out at school.

Don’t forget- Friday is a half day.

Thursday students will be having a quiz in math.
Students will have to do the following:
1. Write a word in written form, unit form, and expanded form.

2. Read and solve money story problems (that include figuring out how many tens are in multiples of hundreds- for example, how many $10s are in $300.)

In the spirit of Halloween, River Oaks staff have been busy decorating pumpkins to be raffled off. Students can purchase tickets for a chance to win a pumpkin. Tickets will cost 25 cents each.

Tickets can be purchased on October 22nd through October 26th.

Drawing for pumpkins will be Friday afternoon (October 26).

All funds will go to help pay for field trip expenses.

Hello everyone!

Just a reminder that the students will have their first science testtomorrow. A copy of the study guide is located down below inClass Story. The test will be multiple choice.

Also, in order to try and make things easier, I had the students ripout all of their homework for the week to bring home today. Eachday I will let them know which lesson homework they should workon. For example, today they will work on Lesson 2, tomorrowLesson 3, and Thursday Lesson 4.

They should turn in their math homework packet on Friday fortheir homework credit.

I had a few students ask if they can do their entire packet tonightand I told them that they should not do so. Each day we learn theessential skills needed to do the homework for that night, so ifthey are working ahead students might miss important skills orinstructions.

Hopefully this will help. 🙂
