HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


  • Only one true academic assignment this break: Read and study the Time for Kids cover story. If they forgot it in class, I've attached a link (you can choose to read it on a screen or print out). Quiz on the Monday when they get back...
  • The Thanksgiving packet will not be collected but it contains some reading, math, and fun activities to help cure those "I'm bored" doldrums.
  • I will be assigning TenMarks this weekend. It will cover standards we already worked on and will not be graded. If you need your log-in info, please first refer to the paper I sent home about a month ago before contacting me. Thanks in advance!
  • THANK YOU to Kendall's mom for dropping off some Thanksgiving treats today! They were yummy!
  • Lastly, many wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Enjoy the family time and food!

                                                        Weekend Notes

                                                                                                      Today was a good start to the school year!

                                                                                                      Students were busy with their beginning of the year activities after we went over rules and the classroom set-up.

                                                                                                      Tomorrow is their first P.E. class. Since the P.E. teacher, Mr. Cross, will begin at 8:10, students will be brought into the classroom, lunch count and attendance will be taken, then I will bring them out to the black top.

                                                                                                      Just a friendly reminder: clothing appropriate for running around, jumping, stretching, general exercises, etc. is recommended as is a water bottle (with your child's name on it).

                                                                                                      Part human be-in, part artwork, part celebration of the museum’s Flower Power exhibition and the 50th anniversary of San Francisco's Summer of Love and ALL FUN!

                                                                                                      Be part of history and join us to form a beautiful lotus that can be seen from the sky. We need at least 3,000 community members who want to create something larger than themselves to break the record. The current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest human flower featured 2,297 people at the Rochester Lilac Festival on May 9, 2014.
