Weekly Message

Hello,

Thank you for the Pennies for Patients donations.  Our class collected $109.37.  I'm so proud of the children.  We have had many discussions regarding where this money is going, and how they are helping very sick children.  The final collection for Pennies for Patients will be January 31st.   

We have Art in Action on Friday.  Piya (Ujaan) will be teaching the lesson this week.  She would appreciate help setting, helping students with supplies as needed, and cleaning up.  If you are available to help please let me know.  

Spelling test on Friday.                                                                                                                             (bone  broke  close  hole  home  how  rode  spoke  those  under)                                             

I have noticed that many of the children have begun using RAZ-Kids at home.  As your child reads through the different books at their level, be mindful that to move to the next level, he/she will need to listen, read, and take the assessment of each story.  Please encourage your child to stay with one book, which will help with the comprehension questions. 

Please remind your child that they need to line up at our classroom when he/she comes on campus in the morning. We have reviewed this rule several times. Again, no playing on the play structure or running around. The children can stand in line and talk with their classmates. I appreciate your support.

Be sure to review the corrected work as it comes home in the Home Folder. This review is a chance to see what your child is doing in the classroom. Wonderful conversations can arise as your child shares, as well as spending this special time together.

Reminders:

  • No playing on the play structure before school.  When the children come onto the campus after 8:00, they need to line up at our classroom. 
  • PMT teachers have asked that the children wear closed-toed shoes Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  These shoes help prevent injuries.
  • Please remind your child if he/she needs a lunch ticket.  
  • Please write your child's name on jackets, backpacks, and lunch boxes.
