Thank you for turning in your child's permission slip for the upcoming field trip on October 28th. I know it is way in advance for both the slip and the admission fee but I have to pay for our seats on October 6th. I appreciate your support and promptness in returning the forms and money.
You may have seen the Classroom Faces order form sent home. Each student has drawn their face and name on a slip of paper that will be screen printed onto a t-shirt and labeled with our classroom name. This is a fun activity to do as a class and the t-shirts can be used for field trips, special events, and just for fun! They are $15 each; please have the form and money sent in by October 15th if you would like to order one. Once I have submitted the order I cannot purchase additional shirts, it is a one time deal.
I realized that I have been sending home quite a few things asking for money for this and that (I feel like a pan handler!) and I promise to be more aware of that. Each month I will send home one set of Scholastic catalogs. These are great books at a great cost. The benefit of our classroom is that for every order we submit we earn points to use towards our classroom library. Thanks to the families who have already placed orders we have already earned around 15 new books for our library. So thank you for putting up with all of the order forms!
We have begun studying the Earth and some great things are happening in our room. Islands are being built, models of the Earth are being made, and kids are excited about what happens each day. As it gets darker outside we will be heading outside to observe the stars and to identify different constellations, visiting the planetarium at the Museum, learning about the different rocks that the Earth is made of, and so much more! Please come and spend time with us, we would love to include you on our adventure.
Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences are quickly approaching! We will soon be setting these times up. If you will be out of town, please let me know ahead of time so that we can schedule an alternative time to meet. This is a great opportunity for your kiddo to show you the work they've been doing in class and for me to share all of the successes that they've had this year so far.
Please make sure to check the snack schedule here on our website. I have sent one home with students for this month but I will not be sending one home unless requested in order to save paper from here on out.
Thank you, thank you! Email me with any questions, concerns, or if you want to chat!
