Candman: Today you should find a fundraiser packet in your child's folder. Please read through the information to learn how to help raise money for our school. Orders & money are due back to school on October 3rd.

Library Books: This year "Media" is one of our Encore Classes. Students go to "Media" (the library) every Wednesday. During this time students work with Mrs. Stahl & check out books. For the first few months of school this will be the only day students can check out books. I am not comfortable sending kindergartners to the library on their own at this point in the school year. Later in the year students will be able to go to their library independently during the first hour of the school day. Until then, they will be escorted each Wednesday and have assistance from Mrs. Stahl when checking out books. You may want to have your child store their library book in their backpack so you have it when they are at home & it will be there when we go to the library. Please read the books with your child. Reading them more than once is ok! Talk with your child about the book -- who are the characters? where did the story take place (setting)? was there a problem in the story? what was your favorite part?

Candyman Fundraiser - Look for more information to come home in your child's folder on Thursday!

Independence Day - is next Monday! Be sure to let your child lead the way to class this week to make sure they can find their own way next week.

What We're Learning - Be sure to check out the "What We're Learning" tab on our class website. I will attach videos each week that go along with what we're studying in class. Feel free to share them with your child to help them retain information about the topics we're learning about.

The following information can be found in the newsletter you will receive in your child's folder today...

ASSESSMENTS: We will begin state reading assessments this week. These are done individually and consist of about 4 components. We test about 3 students each day over the course of 2-3 weeks. Once assessments are complete I will be contacting each of you to set up our first parent/teacher conference. I will share results with you at that time & discuss student needs with you as well. We will also begin nightly reading assignments after assessments are complete.

CLASS WEBSITE: Please be sure to visit our class website each week and when I send an email about updates. I list important information for parents & learning videos each week. If you do not have access to the internet please let me know.

-INDEPENDENCE DAY: PCS has declared Sept 18th independence day” for K-5 students. This means students should walk to class with out a parent/guardian escort by Sept 18th. Teachers will be in the hallways & at doorways to make sure students get to the right place. You can practice by allowing your child to show you the way now.
-WED. SEPT 6th: I will not be on campus. I will be attending a training all day. I will let students know ahead of time but also wanted you to be aware. Mrs. Sims & Ms. Robbins will be there and a substitute. They will try to keep the day running as normal as possible.
-*Request* Please continue to have your child work on opening food packages independently, fastening clothing, tying shoes & neatly writing their name.

(In class we ask them write only the first letter of their name as a capital. The rest should be lowercase.

Example: Heather Landreth)


...are listed on the newsletter and under the calendar tab on our class website.  

Today your child should have brought their folder home for the first time. You should find some papers in the folder from the front office & PTA. Please place any money you send to school in the first clear plastic sleeve & label what the money is for. Feel free to send us notes in those plastic sleeves as well. We will check the folders each day. The first newsletter will be sent home in the 2nd sleeve next week.

This evening I will be sending out a trial message through the remind app. I have entered everyone's cell phone number into my remind app. You should be able to receive messages from me. If you would like to respond & text message me back you will need to download the remind app.


We've had an awesome first 2 days of school. There are a few things you can do at home to help make things easier for us here at school...

Please work on buttoning/unbuttoning pants, buckling belts, tying shoes, opening juice pouches & snacks. We spend a lot of time on these housekeeping items with 22 students! The more time we spend on these items the less time we have for curriculum coverage.
