The past week was pretty rough in regards to the kids listening, completing their daily work, and being respectful of the adults around them. With another guest teacher coming for a half day on Tuesday, in the afternoon, I've decided to pull back the freedoms in the classroom based on the behaviors being displayed. If you have questions about what this looks like, please email me or stop by to chat. I would be glad to walk you through what we are doing to reinforce positive work habits and respect in the classroom.
I have sent two field trip forms home, please return them by October 7th with $15 dollars for the combined admission for both plays. If you are planning on chaperoning, I will need additional admission for you as well. We will be taking a bus to Aladdin on October 9th and walking to Click, Clack, Moo on November 5th. We currently need at least 3 more chaperones for both field trips. Thank you to Kenyi and Veronica for volunteering!
Is your child a third grader? They have the opportunity to apply to be a school mediator. The application went home on Friday. Please have your child fill it out and return it by October 5th to be considered for this important role. It does involve two days of training at the end of October at a nearby church with the other mediators.
Parent-Teacher Conferences are approaching quickly! We are introducing a new scheduling system this year. I will be sending this information out shortly. This also means that half-days and another in-service day is just around the corner!
Thank you for waiting outside of our classroom door at the end of the day for your child. It helps us to stay on task and to complete our jobs before being dismissed on time. Occasionally it takes us a few minutes longer to finish our responsibilities, thank you for being patient while we finish our important work!
If you need to speak with me please get in touch with me either before 8:40am or after 3:45pm. The few minutes before and after school can be hectic. I am almost always at school by 7am and you can always email me at email@example.com to set up a time to meet as well.
Have a great week!
