Dear Parents: We will be having a Halloween Party on Thurs. October 31. I will be sending home a sign up sheet if you would like to send a snack or drink for the party. Although candy and sweets are fine, please consider something a bit healthier, like water bottles, veggies, fruit, pretzels, etc. I do not have parents attend the party, because the students enjoy passing out their own treats, and they will be watching a movie. The students should wear their costumes to school that day because of the parade. It is very difficult for them to change at school, so please send them with their costume already on. The parade will be outside of the school at 2:50 that day. All parents are welcome to attend the parade. Thank you so much!

Week of 10/14-10/18

Dear Parents: A reminder to please review the Math Study Guide with students, as we have a Math Test tomorrow. Also, a reminder that Wednesday is a Late Start this week.

Our Spelling Words this week are: cute, cut, cube, cub, tube, nut, rude, jump, fume, bump. Thank you!

Field Trip

Dear Parents: Please note that the Field Trip permission slip and money are due tomorrow for our Oct. 28th trip. If there is an issue, please contact me, and I can extend until Monday. Please also note that if you have volunteered to chaperone, that your background check must be on file with the school office, and you must drive your own child to meet us at the museum, in order to save room on the bus. If you are a chaperone, you must stay the entire time of the trip to supervise children. Thank you so much for your help and support. Without your help, these trips would not be possible. Thank you.

Field Trip

Dear Parents: I have plenty of chaperones for the October 28 Field Trip. In fact, I have too many. I may have to do a raffle pick, and refund your money if you don’t get chosen. Hopefully, I won’t need to do that, but I will let you know. Thank you for all of your response in wanting to help.

Spelling List this week: rip, ripe, fin, fine, mix, did, hike, bike, pipe, pick.

Thank you.

Birthdays/Class Parties

Dear Parents: I apologize if there has been any confusion about birthdays and/or class parties. Students may bring something to share with the class for their birthday, but I do not have parents come in. Anything that you would like to have them share can be dropped off in the office, and the students may pass to the class with some friend helpers.

For class parties, we will have a party for Halloween, Winter, Valentine’s Day, and End of School Year. For these parties as well, I ask for parents to send in any treats their child would like to share, but I do not have parents join the party. The students enjoy passing their own treats to the other children.

Thank you for your constant support and generosity. When it is closer to Halloween, I will pass a sign up sheet. Thank you!

Week of 9/23-9/27

Dear Parents:The first Math Test will be tomorrow. It is fairly simple, and is mostly review of skills. I will send home a Math Study Guide for students to practice and study today. The Spelling List for this week is: mad, made, cap, cape, back, bake, ham, tape, late, made.

Week of 9/16-9/20

Dear Parents: The students started Spelling Tic Tac Toe today. Most of them finished already. If they do not finish by Thursday, I will have to send it as a homework because it is due Friday. I’m sure everyone will be able to finish. The Spelling Words this week are: dog, pet, hut, tub, jet, want, bun, job, tell, rub. There will be a Spelling Test on Friday, even though Friday is a half day. Friday dismissal will be at 11:45. Thank you!

Reading Bags/Zearn Pass Code

Dear Parents:

Today I will be sending home Student Reading Bags and Reading Logs. The Reading Logs must be filled out and signed daily. Students should be reading at least 20 minutes a day, including weekends. The Reading Logs are in their folders. Please keep these at home until filled. When full, the students can turn it in to earn a patch tag, and then begin a new one. The Reading Bags must be brought back and forth from school to home every day. Many, many students have dropped many Reading Levels over the Summer, and we need to get back on track.

The Zearn Pass Code is written on today’s date in the planner, and is: MN9Q9P. Please also go on Zearn every day for Math practice. Thank you for your help.
