Our field day is NEXT Wednesday. Please let me know if you would like to run a station and help us!

Our class party is NEXT FRIDAY. Thank you in advance for sending in items for our class party. Don't forget to send in a NEW gender neutral wrapped book so your child can participate in the class party! 

Want to help your child advance their reading and math skills? Handouts went home showing you how to log on to Smarty Ants and Reflex Math. These are AMAZING programs that Panther Run has provided. Please encourage your child to log on at home. The password has been reset to 3571.  Smarty Ants is your child's school ID and Reflex math is username: melita

We would LOVE to add some more cool STUFF to our treasure box. If you have any new prizes, treats, or goodies that would be great! I use treasure box toys as incentives for bringing in Box Tops and for winning ticket drawings on Friday.

* Please make sure you return the book in a bag the following school day. I had many not returned on Friday and it's imperative that I get them all back or I will be unable to send home future books with any child who doesn't return their book. Thanks so much for your assistance in this matter. 

* Please remember to have your child read a book each night. Please log the name of the title or chapter. On Friday, any child who reads M-Th gets to clip up!! That's a big deal and a great way to positively enforce reading. 

That's all for now! Have a GREAT weekend!

It can get chilly in the classroom, I suggest you place a sweater or light jacket in your child's backpack. Be sure to write your child's name on the label so that if it is lost it can be returned.

Students have their healthy personal snack at 9:45 a.m. Be sure to pack a snack each day. We have peanut allergies in our class this year, please try to keep this in mind when packing a snack. Thank You!

If there are any changes in dismissal, please write a note and send it with your child or contact the office at 754-323-6850.
