Buffalo Basket Benefit
Last year’s Buffalo Basket Benefit was such a huge success as an “adult only” evening, we are doing it again! The event is scheduled for November 14th and will be held at the Lake Miona Recreation Center. If you would like to decorate our basket, please contact myself or Ms. Zawacki!
Occasionally I have small chores that can be completed at home that would count for parent involvement hours. Another way to earn parent involvement hours is to send in things as needed. Please be sure to include a receipt so that when you have accumulated $50, credit will be posted to you for the Parent Involvement time earned. Thank you so much for your support of our class!
If you would like to donate items to our classroom, please see the list below.
Post it notes, Expo markers, treasure box items, individually wrapped snacks, glue sticks. Thank you for all you do.:-)

Thank you to all of you who are checking your child’s homework nightly and making corrections, initialing their homework, and their planner. Please help your child get into the routine of checking their planner nightly to be sure they have completed all of their homework. Many of our children seem to think if they don’t have a worksheet for a particular subject, they don’t have any homework in that subject for the night. They are forgetting to look at the planner, which shows that they may have spelling homework, reading homework, or study homework that did not require a worksheet. It is a good idea to check your child’s planner when signing it just to be sure you have seen all the required work. Just as a reminder, late and missing work will have a negative effect on your child’s grade. A maximum of 60% will be awarded for work turned in one day late, and a zero will be entered in the grade book thereafter. Homework is designed to practice skills learned in class, so it is very important that it be done on time. Please note, absent assignments do not fall under this category. The “Absent Homework Policy” still stands. The Handbook Attendance Policy states that in order to receive credit for missed work due to an absence, a student must turn in assignments upon returning to school within the number of days missed plus one day. Thank you for all of your support.
