The Special Area Team can't thank you enough for coming out this past Tuesday to attend our "Special Area Parent Night". We truly appreciate your support and hope you left with a little more understanding of what we do in our classes. If you couldn't make it to our parent night, may I encourage you to continue checking here on our Teacher Connection pages often and may I encourage you to communicate with us anytime you have questions or concerns.
I have just added some pictures of the artwork related to our FARM theme for the month of September. (click here for the blog: www.strokesofart.blogspot.com)
The Reading Celebration was this past Wednesday and I believe it was one of the best ones yet! The skit was so cute that many of our teachers put on for the students; the song they learned in Music class was adorable and, well, I LOVED the headbands, puppets and beach pails the students made! In case you didn't realize, each Kindergarten student had a headband and beach pail they helped make; the first graders had headbands and puppets they helped make. It was thanks to many of my talented parent volunteers that the hats were finished on time and that every student had one!! A sincere thank you to Pam Kellum, Elisabeth Holley, Jeanne Madison, Tiffany Madison and Arlene VanGorder for all the cutting, gluing, stapling and folding!! Your willingness to help is always appreciated!
We have begun work in our art journals for the first graders, and I'm afraid we are still in need of some sketchbooks. I have purchased several myself and some parents have donated extra. Thank you for your donation and as always, any donations to the Art room count towards Parent Involvement time. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in donating one or two spiral sketchbooks for students who were not able to bring one in.
Please know, that you can contact me with any questions, by phone and E-mail. I can't take phone calls during the school day, as I'm always with students, but E-mails will always work and I will write back as soon as possible.
