Welcome Back Tomorrow!

Hello Families!

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! 

Please send in a warmer change of clothes to be kept in your child’s locker. Tomorrow, students will bring home the clothes that are in their locker now- these clothes are from the beginning of the year and not weather appropriate right now.

Also, please remember that the weather has changed now. Students need to come to school with snow shoes, snow pants, scarfs, and gloves; these can/will be kept in their lockers for when they are needed. Students will change in and out of their snow gear on the days necessary. This will make sure students stay warm outside and help keep our floors and Montessori rugs clean.

Can’t wait to see students tomorrow morning!

Have a wonderful night!!!

News from Today!

Hello Families!

Today was a very busy day!

We took our Spelling and Math Test!  We celebrated Talia’s and Alirida’s Birthdays!  We also had a Pizza Party!

Going home today in your child’s Yellow Daily Folder are the following:

  • Thanksgiving Break Work Packet.  There is a Reading Packet and Math Packet.  If your child completes both of the packets COMPLETELY then he/she will get a desk pet and an accessory or food 🙂  This is a good way to ensure that your child stays academically active while we are on break.  Please do not complete all of this in one day.  Also, there is not a lot in these packets, just work that will build on their understanding.
  • Some students will have an IRIP that parents signed during parent-teacher conferences- this copy is for you.  Please do not return.
  • Students also have completed work in their folders.
  • Spelling and High Frequency Word Lists are also in their folders.

I will not be at school tomorrow.  Thank you again Mrs. Salmassi for helping out and taking care of our kids!

Thank you Mrs. Charara for picking up our pizza and getting us meat pies!!!

There will be NO Daily Check-Ins this week 🙂

Have a wonderful break!!!


Hello Families!

Wow! What an eventful week we had!

We will also have our Pizza Party tomorrow!

I will be out on Tuesday. Mrs. Salmassi will again be watching over our students. Thank you so much Mrs. Salmassi!

I will be sending home some extra work over Thanksgiving break for students to keep their minds active!
Have a great rest of your weekend!

Update for Friday!

Hello Families!

What a surprise this morning! I know that unexpected situations can be hard for some families, so I hope everyone was able to sort out the no school day quickly!

Since we were not in school today, I could not send the second part of our Module 2 Review home. So, we will have our Math Test on Monday 11/21/22.

Our Spelling test will still be tomorrow over the long u vowel pattern.

Tomorrow is our Pizza Party! We will have pizza, meat pies, cookies, and juice.

Have a good day!
