I'm going to apologize right now for how long this is. I've told you that I like to talk, right?
Wow, what an amazing start to the school year we have had! With me being gone two weeks of the first month of school, I am just completely in awe of how well the kids are handling their responsibilities and expectations. Their Montessorian-ness(that's a word, right?) is showing! I just love it!!
With that said, I will be gone Monday through Thursday. This is my last scheduled absence. Thank you again for your understanding with these two major life events I am experiencing. I know that the timing is not the most convenient but I do appreciate your support. While I am gone Mr.Mason will be the sub teacher.
This last week we have been working hard on our Daily 5 expectations and our math lessons. They have also been learning how to take care of our environment and I have to say, they are doing an amazing job. I am really excited for this school year and all that we are going to be able to do with such a responsible and respectful group.
If you have not sent in a permission slip for your child to use the computer/iPads, please do so. I still have five or six students that do not have permission to use the technology in the classroom yet. If you're not sure you sent your child's in, please shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am working on getting a few field trips in the works. I'm hoping to go to the museum in both September and October, I am just waiting to hear back on dates. We are also booked for a play at the PAC in November. Please check the "field trip" section regularly for more information. I update that section as soon as I have the information. We will need at least 4 parent chaperones for every field trip.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns or if you just want to chat. The easiest way to get ahold of me is through email or Remind (text). Also, I am usually at school by 7am so you can also stop by before 8:30 to chat.
Lastly, I promise, I appreciate you waiting outside the classroom door at the end of the school day, it helps control the chaos of closing down our community for the day. So, thank you for that! You guys are awesome!
Have a great week!
Open House- September 22nd @6:30pm (Please come! This is our chance to talk and for you to see the classroom and your child's work expectations.)
