Weekly Message

Hello,

Reminder: No school October 7th - 18th

I enjoyed meeting with you last week.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Please check the Audubon Website to view our #Kind photo.  Thank you for your contributions to Audubon's fundraiser.  Each donation is greatly appreciated.  Thank you for supporting Audubon.

Friday we had our first Art in Action lesson.  The children were inspired by Marc Chagall's painting, "I and the Village."  A big thank you to Ann-Marie (Iya) for teaching the lesson.  She had wonderful support from Ritu (Sanjana), Victoria (Ujaan), Barkha (Samarth), and Sophia (Jay).  I'm looking forward to the next lesson in October.  

 Scholastic book orders are due October 4th.  You can refer to the order form I placed in your child's Home Folder.  If you are interested, please order online.

On November 8th we will be going to Hidden Villa Farm.  This field trip is always a lot of fun.  I will need parent help for this trip.  To chaperon, you will need to be fingerprinted. If you were fingerprinted last year, please let me know.  You will not need to be printed again.  The process is straightforward.  Just pick up the form in the office, and they will share where you can go to have your fingerprints taken.  As long as you stay in our school district, you will not need to go through this process again. 

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.
