Monday, September 20th 

Today kicks off our Boosterthon Fun Run! We are super excited to raise money for our school! We have a school wide goal of raising $30,000 with a specific goal for the funds to be used for much needed playground updates.  We appreciate your support and dedication to our school! 

Thank you to all who returned Practice Sheet #1 today. If you forgot to return it today, please send it in your child’s Daily Folder tomorrow. Practice Sheet #2 is coming home in folders today. I wanted to share a close-up of the Sight Word Practice Box because it did not copy well: Sight Word Practice Box

You will also see your child’s work from last week’s Literacy Stations coming home in folders today. The students did well last week with our first week of Literacy Stations. Literacy Stations is an important time in our day for students to complete group/partner work reinforcing our reading skills, while I teach differentiated small group lessons.  I look forward to seeing the students grow with independence, cooperatively working with others and producing quality work while working in stations. 

Last week, we enjoyed our first Scholastic News lesson! Thank you for providing the funds for us to have this wonderful resource. Not only does our subscription include the colorful newspaper your child brought home last week, it also comes with access to great digital resources. Our first lesson was all about responsibility and helping out! We learned about being responsible at school as well as being responsible at home. The kids loved reading through their newspaper, viewing  the digital lesson and discussing the importance of responsibility. 

Picture Proofs came home in Daily Folders Friday.  If you wish to place an order, the due date is September 29th.  Picture Make-up Day is scheduled for September 30th.  If you would like for your child to retake pictures on make-up day, you will need to send a note to school in their daily folder on September 30th. On picture make-up day, I will only send the students who were absent on picture day and those with a note from parents requesting to retake their picture.  

Reminder to email Community Helper assignment by Wednesday, September 23rd . The post from September 10th includes the details for this assignment. We are looking forward to learning about our Parents and their roles as Community Helpers.
