Mrs. Stacey Filone « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

 

 Greetings Filone's Fabulous Fireballs,

 

Coming home on Monday in your child's agenda planner  is a volunteer sign up sheet for our Founder's Day Festival on September, 25th. If you are interested in helping with our class booth, please fill out and return the form to me as soon as possible. This is a fun way to earn PI time.

 

Username and Passwords for ThinkCentral (online math and science access)  can be located in the front of your child's agenda planner. Directions were sent home on Friday on how to access Thinkcentral. They can also be located as a PDF Document below. 

 

My Open House Powerpoint is located below for you as a PDF Document. You may refer back to it at anytime to review our classroom policies and procedures. Thank you for all of your support!

 

Important Reminders:

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. Your child's behavior number will be written daily in their agenda.

Your child is permitted to bring a water bottle with them to school each day to keep at their desk. Please make sure it has a lid that can be closed tightly to keep any spills from happening.

 

Important Information:

There will be a Buffalo PRIDE Meeting held on Tuesday, September 1st at 6:00 PM at the Villages Charter Middle School.

 

Our lunch is every day from 11:12-11:37 in Cafeteria 1.
