Hello, Parents! It was wonderful seeing you all at Curriculum Night. If I was not able to address your specific questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I will be creating a class distribution list with the email address you provided. You will receive emails from me with reminders, last minute changes, etc.

CogAT testing will take place this week. As previously mentioned at Curriculum Night, this test is one factor that determines PA qualification. Please ensure your child is well-rested and eats a healthy breakfast!

Progress reports will go home on Friday. Please sign the report and have your child return it to school the following Monday.
Curriculum Night is this Wednesday, September 19th. Two sessions will be held: 6:30-7:10 and 7:20-8:00. I look forward to seeing and speaking with all of you!

Please make sure to sign the assignment sheet after your child has completed his/her homework. Thank you for your support!

Students will have their first set of spelling words, which will be located in the pencil case in the take home binder. Students will be using these words at school, so make sure to put the words back in the case after studying at home. All students will have the same set of words this week in order to learn the procedures of Words Their Way. The test will be this Friday.

Word wall words are the same as last week. The word wall test will be on Thursday.

I hope this isn't too confusing...I promise to explain procedures in detail at Curriculum Night! :-)

Students can bring in stickers, pictures, etc. to decorate their Writer's Notebook this week.

We made it through our first full week of school, despite the heat!

Our major focus this week was "Read to Self," and we discussed characteristics that good readers exhibit. We visited the LMC and came up with rules for our own classroom library.

On Wednesday be on the lookout for our first assignment sheet and set of word wall words. Both of these items will be in your child's take home binder.

Please ensure that snacks are nut-free. Some students have been bringing snacks with peanut butter to class. Thank you for your support.

Have a wonderful long weekend!
