    Here is next week’s newsletter: October 24-28.  Thank you for taking the time to read the newsletter each week. 

    Report of Learning Folders are coming home today with your child’s 1st Nine weeks Report Card. As discussed at Parent Night, our grading scale is 4, 3, 2, 1. Your child will not receive a 4 until the standard has been taught to the full depth of the Kindergarten expectations AND your child has shown consistent mastery of the standard. At this time of the year 2s and 3s are extremely common. Another thing we discussed at Parent Night was that Kindergarten teachers system wide have a rubric to follow when assigning a 4, 3, 2 or 1 for a standard. After reading the Report Card, please do two things. First, sign the report card in the address box on the front page. Second, I would like one parent from each family to complete this Google Form

    If you are available to help decorate the hallway and prepare items for the Rock Your School event, please use this link to sign up. We need volunteers that can come without children at 4:00 on Thursday, October 20th. Thank you for your willingness to help!

    This important note is coming home in folders today: Field Trip Notes I’m posting the note on the website just in case you misplace it before Tuesday morning. 

    The AEA Be A Champion and Read contest will begin on Monday when the form comes home in your child's daily folder. Students will read six reading-level appropriate books to qualify. All reading logs should be submitted by Friday, October 28th. No late entries will be accepted. Every student who completes the special Be A Champion and Read reading log will receive an Alabama or Auburn bookmark. The grand prize - two students will be selected statewide - one Alabama fan and one Auburn fan - to receive free tickets to the Iron Bowl. Each prize includes game tickets, sideline passes, and pre-game activities for the winner and two accompanying guests. 

    We had a wonderful teacher appreciation lunch today provided by PTA.  Thank you so much to those that contributed to the luncheon or provided Duty Free Lunch. We all enjoyed this delicious meal in the quiet library!

    Enjoy the Fall Festival tomorrow!
