Good afternoon,

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. This week October 3-7th:

  • Guess what?! Everyone in the class scored 100% on our first spelling test on Friday!! I am so proud of our class. Let’s keep this going. New spelling words went home Friday (short i), test is this Friday. Fluency homework for the week is coming home today. Have your child read the sentences three times each day and color the boxes. Don’t forget to sign it too.
  • September reading logs were due today and October logs are going home.
  • Awesome job to those of you that signed up for PTA. Our class won cider and donuts for this Thursday!!! You can still sign up anytime for PTA.
  • This Friday is a half day for students. Dismissal is at 12:05. Don’t forget to bring a snack.
  • This week in math we will be completing lessons 18-21.
  • We start Weekly Writing homework in October. Going home today your child will get a list of writing topics. Each week they will choose a topic and write about it (be sure to follow the guidelines at the bottom of the page). Writing is due each Friday. Students may need a little help with this but it is their writing and they should be trying their best to spell the words themselves. Please do not do it for them or spell any words for them. It will not be perfect and that’s ok, they are still learning 🙂 Students will receive a writing grade each week for their homework.
  • Students have been learning about bullying in Second Step. Homework is going home today.
  • Don’t forget our field trip is next Tuesday. More detailed info will be sent home at the end of the week.

Have a lovely week :))
