Dear Parents, families, and students,
Homework: Homework will be given Monday-Thursday this week, and will consist of a reading sheet and a daily math homework page. Thursday night students will be completing spelling 3 times each to prepare them for their test on Friday. I ask that you look over your child's homework and initial each piece. Please remember homework is due the next day unless I specify differently. Homework turned in a day late will automatically receive a 60% (unless the child has been absent).
Founder's Day: September 30th from 5:00-9:00! We will need to borrow a tent and a couple tables for the event, so please let me know if you would like to help supply those items! We will also need each parent to donate a dozen donuts, which will need to be turned in THE MORNING OF September 30th. Letter went home with information. If you haven't volunteered your time to help in the booth, please e-mail me and let me know what time you would be interested in helping. Times we have available are the following: 6:00-7:00, 7:00-8:00, 9:00-breakdown. What a great way to earn PI time!!
Invisible Island Project: Calling all mapmakers! We have our first project of the year, and I am so excited about this one! Students will be creating their own island! Projects are due September 30th. No late projects will be accepted! Please see below for more information about the project.
Accelerated Reading: Just a reminder that students should be testing on AT LEAST two books a week. If you feel your child is ready to take an AR test, please write the complete book title and AR quiz number in your child's reading log, inside the agenda. Please remember, your child's AR goal for the 1st nine weeks is located inside their agenda. Students will need to maintain an 80% comprehension on their AR tests for recognition of completion of goal. You can check your childs AR progress by logging onto the AR connection page to see their progress so far for this nine weeks. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
Boxtops for Education: Our class is collecting Box Tops for education! Did you know that for every Box Top you send in our school earns 10¢? It's as simple as clipping Box Tops and sending them to school in your child's folder in a sealed baggy. We'll take care of the rest! Thanks for all you do!
I really appreciate all you will do to help make this year amazing! If you have any other questions, please feel free to let me know.
