Happy September! It is hard
to believe that we have already been in school for 3 ˝ weeks!! Thank you to everyone who donated items from
the “PI” tree. Please let me know if you
are ever interested in sending in donations for the class. We are always happy to accept items for our
room! I have several parent volunteers
helping out in the classroom on a weekly basis. If you are interested, and have not sent back
your volunteer form, please do so as soon as possible. I’m always looking for volunteers, both in
and out of the room. If your
availability changes or if you would like to work on a special home project,
please jot me a note in your child’s binder or send me an email. Also, there are still slots available for our
Founder’s Day booth so let me know if you would like to help out that evening.
Speaking of Founder’s Day, I encourage you to come out for a
fun-filled family evening on Friday, September 12th. There will be plenty of game booths, performances,
rides and delicious food! The event
takes place at the high school stadium, on both fields. Come celebrate the founding of our fabulous
school…hope to see
As we await the unveiling of our virtual gradebook, Skyward, please
don’t forget to check the “Keep at Home” side of your child’s binder each
Monday. All of the previous week’s work
will be sent home on that day. This will
help you stay up to date with your child’s progress. Hopefully Skyward will be available soon, so
be on the look-out for a letter from the central office with your log-in
We have a busy month ahead!
Make sure to check our calendar each week for information on school
events and our classroom assignments.
Our monthly newsletter will also be posted for your information, just in
case your home copy gets misplaced. Spelling
and reading tests are every Friday. The
week’s spelling words are located in your child’s binder as well as on the
class calendar. The week’s High
Frequency Words are also on the calendar.
Your child should be able to read these words by Friday. Baggy Books and Math homework are sent home
Monday – Thursday. Please make sure to review
your child’s math homework with him/her before it is returned to school. In addition, please remember to check and
sign your child’s binder each evening.
It is a great way to stay in touch with us!
Finally, I am so fortunate to be a partner with you in your child’s
education. Please contact me if you ever
have a comment, question or concern. I’m
always available at some time throughout the day and I promise to get back with
