Conferences, PBIS and a Short Vacation!

It has been such a pleasure to meet with all of my students and their families at conferences!  The children were anxious to present their information to you and to have you see their first report card.  Everyone did such a fine job!  I have such a wonderful group of students to work with, thanks you all of you!

Our November PBIS celebration is almost here and we are celebrating with a few games of TURKEY BOWLING! The party will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 29th. Students will be bowling with a rubber bowling ball to try and knock down three “turkey pins”. They will also be challenged by trying to knock the pins over while bowling backwards, hopping on one foot, blindfolded, and other fun and silly tricks.

Students will participate in this event if they have demonstrated positive behavior throughout the month of November and have less than 5 card flips.

Thanks for your support,  The PBIS team

**In the spirit of the holidays and to keep our turkey theme, 5 turkeys will be donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank in Dearborn Heights funded by the Haigh Spirit committee.

Upcoming dates to mark on your calendar:

No School Wednesday, 11/22 through Friday, 11/24

School Lock-In Friday, 12/1

Play at Stout Wednesday, 12/13 9:00-12:00

Newsletter Changes, No School, Report Cards, Conferences, Etc!

Please note that the November PTA Newsletter stated that the kindergarten and young 5’s do not have school on Friday, November 10th.  That is incorrect!  They willl not be in session on Friday, November 17th.  

Tomorrow is our Halloween Party!  We will have our party about 1:30.  The committee has done a fine job planning the party.  We hope to see you outside at the all-school parade which will start at 2:30 and go around the school.

Once again, Haigh students will be collecting Cans for a Cause.  A note will be coming home today.  The class with the most submissions wins a Yogurtopia gift card for each student.

Friday, November 3rd is a half day and the end of the first marking period.  Report cards will be distributed during your child’s November conference.

There is no school for students on Tuesday, November 7th!

On Thursday, the 26th, our WONDERFUL Haigh PTA is providing a pumpkin patch for all of our students.  Each child will choose a pumpkin!!

Our Halloween party, planned by our student committee,  will be on Tuesday, October 31st before the all-school parade starts at 2:30.  Your child can bring their costume to change into for the party and parade.  No weapons or masks please.

Have a great weekend!

Important 5th Grade Information!

Just a note to update you on what we have accomplished in the last couple of weeks and to let you know what is coming up soon!

We have completed all NWEA testing, as well as, all DRAs.  This allows us to now begin our daily routines in reading and writing.  The students have been working on personal narratives.  We have discussed the elements of historical fiction and they have all chosen an historical fiction novel to read.  They will have a Google Classroom assignment to complete once they have read the novel.

Ask your child about the ice cream we made on Wednesday!!

The fifth grade teachers will be holding an informational parent meeting on Wednesday, October 4th in the Media Center from 6 to 7 PM.  Please try to attend this meeting as we go over everything from curriculum and expectations to field trips and fifth grade camp and activities!

Off to a GREAT Start!

What a great group of students I have to work with this year!  We are  setting up notebooks and getting down routines in Room 46!  The students have been willing and flexible as changes have been made in schedules and rotations.

This year, Miss Wilson and I will be team teaching.  She will teach Math to both of our classes and I will teach Science and Social Studies.  The students have already begun to make the switches daily and are being very responsible.

Hopefully your child has shared with you that we have adopted a fifth grade classroom that was affected by Hurricane Harvey.  We sent home a yellow half note in this regard.  Any donations are appreciated and we will continue to accept them through the end of this week.

Some important dates:

Thursday, Sept.14         Open House 6-7:30 PM

Tuesday, Sept. 19          Field Trip All Day

Wednesday, Sept. 20   PTA Meeting

Friday, Sept. 29            Picture Day
