Room 9 news
September 20, 2019
Dear Parent of Room 9,
Welcome to our classroom website! I hope you have had a chance to visit our Shutterfly site and that you are receiving emails through Shutterfly from Nancy Chan-Cheung and me. I wanted to acknowledge Nancy (Christian's mom) for volunteering to be your Room Representative this year. THANK YOU, NANCY! I also wanted to acknowledge Ardelle Ying (Joanna's mom) and Jennie Chen (Vera's mom) for volunteering to be our Art in Action Assistants. They will be helping me set up and organize materials for each art project. THANK YOU, ARDELLE and JENNIE!
Next week is a full week of minimum days (12:40 dismissal) for Parent-Teacher Conferences. On the Shutterfly site, I have uploaded a file with the full week's conference schedule for your reference. Thank you for returning your confirmation letters! If you have any last minute changes and you are unable to come to your conference, please let me know as soon as possible so we can try to reschedule.
Next week is also Kindness Week (formerly Move-A-Thon). This is Audubon's big fundraising event for the year. If you have already returned your envelope, thank you!! If you are not sure about why we need to do this kind of major fundraising, even as a public school, I would like to refer you to the information letters that were sent home by the PTA in the last couple weeks that explain where all the money goes. One BIG suggestion I have for you is to see if your company will match your donation.
I have submitted the Scholastic Book order for September. Thank you for all your orders! I was able to choose so many free books for Room 9! The books should arrive at Audubon School in about a week or so. You should have them before Fall Break.
Please sign up to be an Art in Action helper for our first project this Friday, September 27th. I am really looking forward to seeing you all this week during your conference time.
Enjoy your weekend! We are expecting some heat this weekend!
