Red Ribbon Week

We will be celebrating a drug free life this week with pledges, fun dress days and assemblies with high school students who will promote healthy lifestyles. Please check the website calendar for more details. It's going to be a fun week full of healthy and important messages!

Monday: pledge to be drug free
Tuesday: sock it to drugs and put a hat on drugs
Wednesday: red shirts and shades
Thursday: team up against drugs
Friday: spirit wear Friday

In Language Arts we will be focused on consonants j, g and z as well as vowel u. Sight words this week are: good, got, green, has, help, here, how and if.

In Math we will focus on subtraction with numbers up to 10. We will learn subtracting 1 less than the whole number and continute to familiarize ourselves with five group drawings and partners of 10. Help your student with counting on and couting back strategies to find the most efficient way to solve math problems.

Fall Auction and Gala packets will come home in backpacks on Monday. Please read through the materials and ask if you have any questions about the requirements of selling tickets. Also, please plan to attend the event. It's a spectacular and fun event put on by our School Board and many generous volunteers. 

Thank you all for attending the Parent Teacher conferences last week. It was great getting to know each of you a little better. If you ever need a conference with me in between progress reports, please do not hesitate to ask. 

Mini Book Reports

Students will bring a book and a Mini Book Report home this week. The book report is due on or before Friday. If you have a book at home that your child wants to use for their book report, that is OK. Books don't have to be from our library. I recommend reading each night at least 20 minutes. Take an AR test as often as you can on whatever books you read, this is a helpful tool to help students gain skills in comprehension.
