We have had another great week here in room 13! The homework is slowly getting better which makes me very happy, however; I still had about 7 students not bring their homework back yesterday. Please keep working on that with your children as it is great practice to get them ready for their weekly assessments. Every week, your student will have a unit of spelling words and a list of vocabuary words that they will be responsible for knowing on their Friday assessments. Please make sure your student is studying these everynight to get prepared.
I also want to remind you that September 30 from 6-6:30 and 6:30-7 is our open house for third through fifth grade. The Open House sessions will be very data driven this year and hopefully help you to see how your child has been doing in their academics.
Lastly, I still have a lot of the first-of-the-year forms that I have not gotten back from some students. I especially need the reduced lunch form from EVERY child whether they qualify for reduced lunch or not! This is very important! Also, I will be sending PTO forms home today with your students. The PTO is doing a big push for sign-ups and will provide a popsicle party to the first class to reach 100% participation. I currently have 9 out of 23 participating. Your students want those popsicles! :)
