Toy Day on Friday!

We are celebrating meeting our class behavior goal with a Toy Day! We have been working on using the appropriate voice level for each activity we do. The kids have made a lot of progress in this area! Please allow your child to celebrate by bringing in a toy to play with this Friday, January 17th! Please make sure toys are small enough to fit in backpacks and are appropriate for school (no guns or fighting related toys please)! It is ok to bring more than one toy if they can still fit in your child’s back packs. Please remember that we will do our best to take care of toys but they could get lost or broken at school. Please leave very special or very expensive toys at home!

Spelling Bee!

We are having a spelling bee the week of January 6th! We will have a low key written test to see how many words we can write. Please help your child practice writing the first list below. The second list will be used as our 2nd round for those students who correctly spell all the words on the first list. Practice the second list if your child can spell all the words on the first list. This is meant to be a fun, enrichment activity to help the kids learn to spell sight words and should not be stressful or overly competitive. We will emphasize doing our best work, being proud of our personal progress, and being happy for the success of others!

Here are the words. Happy Spelling! (This list will also be in the folder this week.)

Good afternoon,

In the interest of safety for our students, families, and teachers, parent teacher conferences for today (Monday, 11/11/19) are postponed.  We will make up these conferences on Wednesday, November 13th.  If you had an appointment for today, your appointment time will remain the same on Wednesday.  If that time will not work for you on Wednesday, please contact your child’s teacher to arrange an alternate conference time.

Again, there will be NO parent teacher conferences today and they will be made up on Wednesday 11/13/19.

Thank you,

Seth Woods

Heroes’ Day

Heroes’ Day is November 18th. We are celebrating veterans, grandparents and everyday heroes! The reason we combine these celebrations together is to make the day more inclusive for all families! K-2 is having an assembly from 9-9:30 and a classroom activity from 9:30-10. Families will also be able to visit the book fair. We would like all children to have a special adult visit on Heroes’ Day. It can be a grandparent, veteran, parent, family member or adult friend. All are welcome!

To prepare for Heroes’ Day, we made a Stars and Stripes quilt!

Each child made a square and we put the squares together to make a quilt.

Logan, a parent, decorated our door and it looks awesome!
