Pre-conference forms

In your child's folder today you will find a family conference forms - this is your copy. I will be sharing these exact forms at conferences next week, so if you look it over and have questions, we can discuss them at that time. I hope you find this to be helpful/useful; it is a new form that I created from our online assessment program that we've started using this year :) Thanks for visiting!

Email addresses

Hello all, As a reminder please don't forget to send rest towels back to school tomorrow - also if you would kindly send me your email addresses I have a cool website for you to monitor your child's progress (I will be explaining more to you at conferences as it's really new to me as well). Thanks for visiting!

Fall is starting to feel true to it's season! Please feel free to send an extra jacket to keep here at school for your child in the event that they forget one in the morning. Also, if you haven't sent extra clothes in the event of an "accident" that are appropriate for colder weather, please do so as well and we will send the others home. Thanks for visiting!

Field Trip

Tomorrow we will be visiting the fire station to conclude our fire safety week. We plan to leave the elementary about 1:45. If you would like to accompany us on our walk, please plan on meeting us at the bench in front of the office at that time. I anticipate that we will be back by 3:00. Let's hope that it doesn't rain on us :) Thanks for visiting!

Baby Pictures

Hello all - you'll find a note today in your child's bag to send a baby picture to school. This will not be handled by the children but will be used as part of our bulletin board display. Please send these asap - I would like to do the activity by the end of the month. Thanks for visiting!

Fall Colors

Looks like we have a beautiful week ahead! Feel free to send "signs of fall/autumn" into the classroom as we learn about the changing of the seasons into fall/autumn. If you're out for a walk at home, point out all the different colors of fall with your child. Thanks for visiting!
