Can you believe it's October already! The end of the first marking period is Thursday, October 6. Our first Report Card will be out October 14! Continue to sign and return the Cold Read tests. They are to be kept in your child's portfolio and reflect how they are using the reading strategies we practice during the week. It's important that the child understands that speed is not the important element in reading, rather using the strategies that will help them with the critical reading they need to do well.
See the Dates to Remember list. Please consider providing gift cards for our Gift Card Wreath that will be auctioned off at the Buffalo Basket Benefit on October 31. If you can't get around to purchase the card, please send money in and Mrs. Locke or I will get it for you. This will go towards your PI hours.
Other information was emailed to you with attachments about Book-o-Ween and the Sea World Field Trip. If you did not get it, please email me and let me know.
There are a few items on our Classroom Wishlist. If you could help, I'd appreciate it. If you buy items, please send in a receipt so I can put it towards your PI hours.
Thanks again for all you do and don't hesitate to call or email me with any concerns or questions. I love your kiddoes and want the best for them!
