This Week's News


Dear Families,

What a great Fun Walk we had! Our class walked for a total of 504 laps. It was a great way to get exercise as well as raise money for the school. Be sure to return your Fun Walk donation envelopes to the classroom or to the front office. Thank you!


Permission Slips and Donations

Thank you to all parents who have returned a signed permission slip and donation check for our trips and enrichment program for the year. Our first trip is October 17th. I will be contacting those of you who said you could chaperone this trip, later in the week. You MUST have a TB clearance and an updated insurance form on file to attend this trip. If you know you need to take care of either of these tasks, please do so ASAP. Thank you.

If you have yet to return your child’s permission slip, this must be done in order to go on the trips this year. If you are unable to donate the fees, please email me. Thank you.


Reflex and IXL

I am so pleased that students have made so much progress on Reflex Math in the last week! Thank you for allowing them on this important fact fluency program at home. Know that this program is a priority to me. IXL is purchased by the school district as an enrichment program. I will use it in class at times, but it is meant to be a tool for you to use at home as well. I do not assign IXL to students to work on at home. IXL has practice problems in English Language Arts as well as math. I encourage you to have your child do both.


Clay project

We will have a clay project this Thursday, October 12th. We can use more parent help. We need you in the classroom from 10:15-11:15. Please email me if you will be able to make it. This is a great way for parents to volunteer, especially when you cannot make a weekly volunteer commitment. Please know you need a TB Clearance to volunteer in the classroom.



If I have not contacted you about volunteering, and you are still interested in coming in weekly to help, please email me. I have some needs on Monday and Tuesday. Thanks!


Have a great week!
