We Are Off and Running

I am so impressed with how students are learning all the new routines, and really settling into their new year! I can tell we have a room full of kids who care, and are eager to learn.

Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out for Meet the Staff night, it was great to meet many of you. If you weren't able to make it, and would still like to stop in and meet me, feel free to set up a time sometime after school.
At Meet the Staff night we had a sign up sheet for parties. There are still lots of spots to fill, so please let me know if you are interested in providing a snack for a party.
I also had volunteer forms available. If you would like to help out on a field trip, or special event at school we need you to fill out a form and return it to the office.
Lastly, I had a small package of tips and tricks for helping your student with their learning at home. Let me know if you'd like one and I can send it home in your child's agenda.

Week at a Glance

As we are getting to know each other, students are encouraged to bring in a special book from home to share with the class during read aloud time. They can bring a book they love and I will read it to the class, or if they have a book they would like to read for the class that would be great too. Please label their book so I can ensure all the books make it home with the rightful owner. I will keep these books in a safe place until sharing time.
Thanks for helping us kick off a great year of reading!
