Pep Rallies: Please make sure to send a note if you are planning on checking out your son or daughter for the Pep rallies on Friday’s. If students do not have a note they will not be sent down until ALL students who brought a note have been picked up.
Book Orders: Students were given a book order form today. If they wish to order books, their orders need to be in by Friday, September 2nd. Please do not send cash with their order. Checks may be payable to Scholastic.
Student Planners: Parents be sure to check your the planner. This is our communication tool to you. Students are to have their planners signed by you on a daily basis. They earn tickets for this, and also lose tickets if planners are not signed.
Just wanted to let you know that students should be reading to you 20 minutes a night. They should be able to tell you at least 3 things about what they read. For example, the main character, the setting, the main event or the problem of the story. The more they read, the better they will be in Math, Spelling, Writing, etc.
Next week students will be bringing home a reading log that will be signed by you. So be looking for that!
