Phone Number & Address: Your boys and girls did a great job reciting their phone number and address on Friday. We will have a retest on Thursday, March 9th for any students who were missing a part of their information.
Buffalo PRIDE Breakout Sessions: The Villages Charter School parent organization (Buffalo PRIDE) will host their annual 2-hour parent workshop on Tuesday, March 7th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm at VHS. Not only is this a great opportunity to learn more about your child's education, you can earn Informational PI time, too! Hope to see you there!
Glazer Children's Museum Fieldtrip: Kindergarten is going to the Glazer Children's Museum (www.glazermuseum.org Check it out!) on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017. Below are the dates all paperwork/fees are due:
2/15- Chaperone Interest form due.
2/22- Volunteer application form with driver's license due
3/8- Permission slip & payment due. Payment is $18.00 for students and $10.00 for chaperones.
Students will be leaving around 8:00 and returning around 3:00. Chaperones must drive seperately and please only one parent chaperone per family. This is such a fun and hands-oPhn experience! We're so excited!
Homework: Homework goes home every Monday and is due back on Friday. Please be sure to return the homework in the homework folder. Please review homework with your child and initial every homework page. Also, please use pencil, unless otherwise noted.
Baggy Books: We are beginning baggy books. The purpose of baggy books is to help your child practice his/her reading fluency. Fluency is the ability to read quickly and accurately. Fluency is important because it frees students to understand what they read. Baggy books will go home every Tuesday. Your student will read the book to you on Tuesday and Wednesday night. Then you will return the book on Thursday in the bag in your child's back pack. I will send home a new book the following Tuesday. Your child will not get a new book until the previous book was returned. So, please be sure to return baggy books on every Thursday. Baggy books are not AR books, so there will not be any AR quizzes taken on baggy books. Again, the baggy book is for your child to read to you. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I do! Happy Reading!
