I guess the warm weather can’t last forever 🙂
Reminders for the upcoming week:
Reading Journals from last Monday are due TODAY!
A new Reading Journal was handed out today; it will be due Monday, October 14th.
The Greek Roots quiz will be FRIDAY. The words are: CIRCUM, INTER, TRANS, EX, ANTI, TELE, OLOGY, UN. Copies of the word lists are posted in Google Classroom. We will do a Kahoot before the quiz on Friday.
Library time is scheduled every week (mostly on Friday). I am happy to send students to the library before Friday if it is needed. Students may check out 3 library books at one time. Students must have a barcode on their planner to check out a book until we have student ID’s.
Students who are one or more minutes late to class will be marked Tardy. At 3 tardies, I will contact home via email, and copy the front office on the email. At 4 tardies, students will be referred to the office AND serve detention.
We have a student from Wayne State University with us for the entire school year! She will be doing her pre student teaching this semester (so observing, working in small groups, helping with planning, presenting 4 lessons) and her student teaching in the second half of the school year.
Please add yourselves to our classroom Remind account! I will be sending important information throughout the year via Remind text. Use the link: rmd.at/h8cchc OR text the message @h8cchc to 831-613-1863
Email is the best way to contact me. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
