March 24-28 are early release days due to Optional Spring Conferences. If you were directly contacted
by me I do not feel a conference is needed at this time.
We are still in the need of parents to make African masks. If you know how
or are still interested in learning how, please let me know.
Accelerated Reader- Please make sure they are reading books at their level or
below. Also be sure they are writing the book title on their log and
spelling the titles
correctly. I have put a link on this site to see if books from your
home library have AR tests. Check it out on the Links page.
Book Reports will still be checked in once a week. Remember 2/month!Yes you
can stockpile some over the breaks:) I ask the kids to not turn in more than
2/week. Kids can also take an AR test on these books!
Return library books on Mondays.
We will be having PE on Mondays (City Fitness starting Sept 9), Tuesdays, and
Thursdays. Please send your child wearing appropriate shoes and clothes.
Please put names on all loose items. Including back packs and lunch bags.
I ask that you separate snack from lunches. Also putting your child's snack
in a throw away bag helps with getting them out the door and gives them
plenty of time to play. Lunches I encourage you to put in a reusable bag.
Put their name on everything!!!
Please visit this site often as I will update it weekly if not more. All
homework resources, including the
take-home math book can be accessed on this site.
The blue Take Home folder should remain in their backpack everyday. Please
take the time to look through it nightly. You may use it to send an items to
Remind your child to sit/stand on line #9 before school. We ask all kids to
not run/play in the
morning, even if others are! We want our kids to be following the rules.
