***There is no school on Friday, October 24th.
I am in need of one volunteer to help in the classroom on Wednesday, October 22nd, to help with carving our pumpkins. We will begin the carving around 10:15am. Can you help? We are also in need of at least one more large pumpkin, this will give us two to carve as a class and to complete our science, math, and writing activities with.
This week we will be starting our study of The Second Great Lesson. Please ask your child what demonstrations they took part in on Monday and Tuesday of this week. We will be learning about the coming of life.
Now that we are two months into the school year and we have been using the computer lab and classroom computers quite a bit, I am realizing that we need student headphones to help ease the noise factor. Please supply headphones for your child, these will be kept at school. They will be used in computer lab and our classroom only. They will be stored in a bin in our classroom so please make sure to label them with your childs' name. I do have a few pairs of ear buds that children can share as well.
Half-days/Conferences: please bring your child with you, they will be showing you the work they have done this quarter. If you can't remember when your conference is, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also send home a reminder slip with your child of your date and time.
Classroom Directory: During our conference I will be asking if you would like to be part of our classroom directory. This will include your childs' name, your name, and your contact information so that other children and parents in our class may contact you for play dates, birthday parties, etc.
Has John made a visit to your house yet? We have really enjoyed the adventures that he is going on and each week we look forward to hearing what he has been up to! Unfortunately his suitcase has been damaged so severely that we had to throw it away. Please remind your child of their responsibility to care for John and his accessories while on their adventures; we have been talking about it in class as well. If you haven't had an adventure with him yet, you are on the list!
Thank you, have a wonderful week!
