AHOY Filone's Savvy Sailors,

 Important Reminders:

Our annual Book-O-Ween celebration will be held this Friday, October 31st! Students are invited to dress as their favorite storybook character to celebrate our love of reading and books. The intermediate center parade will be held at 8:30 am. Parents are welcome to join and watch as our favorite storybooks come to life. 

Our "Buffalo Basket" theme is LEGO MANIA. Any donations of Lego products would be greatly appreciated. Please remember to turn in all receipts for PI time. Thank you for your continued support. 

Below is a link to the Sunshine State Young Reader Awards for you to view. The students have already enjoyed seeing this presentation in class with Mrs. Lyons.

Parent/Teacher Conference sign up sheets were sent home at the end of September. If you have not yet returned your form, please do so as soon as possible. If you need another conference form, please send me an email or write a note in your child's agenda planner.

 Please sign your child's AR Tracking Sheet that is located in the plastic sleeve of your child's red take home folder.

I have placed my Open House powerpoint presentation below as a PDF document. 

Usernames and Passwords for Connected and ThinkCentral have been placed on labels and can be found in the front of your child's agenda! You now can access to our Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies books and online materials. I will attach directions below for each as a PDF. If you are having any difficulty accessing these materials online at home, please let me know.

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. 


Helpful Hints:

Our lunch is every day from 11:08-11:33 in Cafeteria 1.

 PI Opportunities: If anyone is interested in PI opportunities, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you for all of your help and support. I have PI projects that can be done in school or at home!
