September 22, 2018 - Water bottles are here for Water Bottle Week. Each child will receive a bottle with their name and GSB written on them. We are not able to keep bottles at school because we have learned that if we did, there would be strict rules around what temperature they would ALL have to be washed at every week. This was not doable, but we are encouraging kids to bring them to school every day. Honestly, our class is pretty great about water bottles, with most kids already having one that they use often daily!!

Chewonki came in this week to do a Zero Waste presentation for us. The kids learned a lot about reducing use in the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle process! 
 
September 15, 2018 - We had a very busy week this week! Benchmark Assessments for reading went GREAT! We are in full swing with Reading Workshop now. Miles of Friends was so much fun! We have our 3-D projects that we did with our Friends on display for Open House night on Tuesday. All are welcome to the Welcome Back dinner at 5:00 and classrooms will be opened up at about 6:00. This is a quick check in.... there will be no formal presentations. You can meet the teachers, see classrooms and we LOVE to have the kids show you around! See you soon! 

9-12-18 Miles of Friends was a HUGE success on Tuesday! The kids got to draw their Friends and the Friends drew the kids! Then we made creations out of Play Dough and toothpicks, read books and had apples and apple cake. We all hated to part but look forward to our next visit on October 9 at the FARMS Kitchen at the YMCA!! We already have sent off letters to our Friends!! 

September 7, 2018 - It has been a great first full week of school! The kids have been busy with lots of learning about each other and our GSB Community. We are getting familiar with See Saw and starting our beginning of the year assessments. The weather has absolutely been a challenge for us, but we are hanging in there and looking forward to the cooler weather in the forecast!
