MI ADV tickets sent home

posted May 24, 2018, 11:29 AM by Jamie Kellogg   [ updated May 24, 2018, 12:49 PM ]

Michigan's Adventure tickets are being sent home with your children today for all of you that are driving separately. Please ask your child to give those to you right away. If your child is riding the bus on Tuesday, I am holding your tickets with mine and will give them to you when we meet in the room Tuesday morning.


Bus riders come to school like normal at 9:05. However, bus riders must have a ride waiting here at Page to pick them up at 5:15 p.m. as there will be no bus transportation home that day.

If you are driving separately, there is no need to stop at school, just head to the amusement park and depart when you wish.

I just got word that the water park will not be open that day, but please remember that your ticket does include your lunch. The lunch times are listed on your ticket stub and the stub is your entrance into the pavilion. The pavilion is located right by the bungee jump. 

It is not required that your child wear his or her Team Kellogg shirt but it's quite nice if they do as it sure does make it easier to spot friends from class and most other classes and/or schools there also have their class shirts on.

Thanks all. As of right now, looks like beautiful weather! Hope it stays that way. 

Science Test Tomorrow

posted May 21, 2018, 10:39 AM by Jamie Kellogg   [ updated May 21, 2018, 12:21 PM ]

Just a reminder that the kids have a science test tomorrow. 

Students were given time last week to complete the study guide in class and we have gone over correct answers in each section. I gave them time to study in class, but many students need to put in more time this evening studying definitions/examples. 

Each of Newton's Three Laws of Motion as well as the Universal Law of Gravitation must be memorized as they will be given a chart and asked to write the law and real life examples of each. I'm not concerned that the wording is perfect, but rather that they can state the law accurately. We have gone over these laws multiple times as a class and students have been aware of this required piece of the assessment.

No tricks, what's on the study guide is on the test. I've asked students to get their study guide signed so I know they put in some extra effort at home. Thanks for your help as we wrap up the year! 

Field Trip Reminders

posted May 16, 2018, 10:53 AM by Jamie Kellogg

We are going on a field trip this Friday, May 18th, to Pierce Cedar Creek Institute. We will be gone from 9:10-2:30ish.

A few important reminders----

Students need to come wearing close toed shoes (preferably tennis shoes as we will be hiking), long pants, and a light jacket in case of rain or cool weather in the morning. If the weather is beautiful then no jacket needed.

Kids will need a sack lunch and a water bottle. Students that would like to order a sack lunch to be prepared for them from the Page cafeteria need to order a day ahead (meaning they need to let me know tomorrow).

Optional items--sunscreen, bug spray

Students are responsible for carrying their own items. I suggest a small backpack be brought for the trip/hike.

Looking forward to our time in nature. :)

Michigan's Adventure Info

posted Apr 26, 2018, 9:41 AM by Jamie Kellogg

Sent home yesterday---Michigan's Adventure field trip ticket ordering form.

Forms and $ are due back on or before Friday, May 4th.

A little background that you may find helpful...

The Michigan's Adventure trip is a celebration trip as your child completes his or her elementary years.  Bus transportation is available for students and parents that would like to ride; however, most parents choose to drive separately or carpool with other families so they can arrive and leave at their leisure. This allows a lot more time at the park. 

If you can't make it but your child wants to go with their friend and his or her parent(s) from another classroom (or our classroom for that matter) that is also absolutely okay. There's a spot to write that information on the bottom of the ticket ordering sheet. 

If your child is going to travel with another family to and from MI ADV, you will need to fill out a "Travel Release Form." Your child can ask for one in the office.

I usually end up with a small handful of kids that need to join in with a parent chaperone. Thank you  in advance to those of you willing to chaperone! I will be in touch later in May. The kids needing chaperones will travel with me to and from MI ADV on the bus. You and I will just talk ahead of time, exchange cell phone numbers, and set a time and place to meet and make the kid exchange at the park. This has always worked perfectly in the past. 

There is no checking in at school that day. Just go directly to the amusement park and have a great time. Hopefully, we bump into each other! 

Our trip is Tuesday, May 29th. It really is a great time.

Musical Tomorrow

posted Apr 25, 2018, 12:31 PM by Jamie Kellogg

Reminder--- The musical is tomorrow night, Thursday, April 26 at 7 pm. 

Students need to be at the high school by 6:45 if they are part of the chorus and 6:15 for cast. Performance attire is solid colored shirt (no graphics/images- and a t-shirt is fine) and black pants. 

Please drop your child by the Kellogg sign in the lobby of the high school and pick them up in the same spot after the performance. 

Thanks so much! Looking forward to a great show!

Happy Spring Break & Starbase upon return

posted Mar 29, 2018, 11:32 AM by Jamie Kellogg

Hey Parents,

Just a quick one to wish you all a really happy and safe spring vacation!! The students are not bringing any work or papers home over break...the break is a break. :)

But, a quick heads up for when we return---

On Monday, April 9th the kids will have both specials, PE and music so they should come prepared with tennis shoes.


On Tuesday, April 10th the kids will travel to STARBASE and will need their sack lunch and to wear their STARBASE shirt if possible. Also, the children will be launching water rockets on Tuesday, April 10th and will be outside for over an hour and will need to dress appropriately. We will launch rockets in sunshine, rain, snow, sleet or hail. 

Enjoy your family time! And I'll chat with you in April


Starbase on Wednesday

posted Mar 26, 2018, 9:49 AM by Jamie Kellogg

Hi all,

Happy last week of school before Spring Break! Just a reminder that we have STARBASE on Wednesday of this week. Kids will need a sack lunch. Also, any students wishing to order a sack lunch to be prepared for them in the Page cafeteria for Wednesday's trip will need to pre-order tomorrow so they are ready before school on Wednesday.

Have a good week, everyone. Can feel spring in the air. :)

STARBASE Forms & Chaperone Info

posted Mar 5, 2018, 12:20 PM by Jamie Kellogg

Please return your child's STARBASE permission form by the end of this week. 

Chaperone Info---I am sending chaperoning information home with the children tonight. Please return those by the end of the week as well so I can put together a schedule. I'll be in touch next week to confirm date(s). I will also take care of contacting STARBASE to get your name of the list for admittance at the gate as most parents will need to drive separately. 

They require a lot of paperwork upfront, but it's pretty casual and easy going once we are on base. The kids and parents usually enjoy our time there.
Any questions, shoot 'em my way. 

Have a great night,

Imp reminders for this week and looking ahead...

Hey Parents,

Sunshine and mild temps sure feel nice, don't they?! No complaints about going out for recess today. :) 

Few things...

-Conferences are Tuesday and Thursday of this week. Reminder---your child needs to come with you as he or she will be leading the conference. I'll be joining for a portion of the conference as well. Looking forward to seeing you all again.

-Battle of the Books is going on. Each student is required to complete 2 novels: one in Feb and one in March. February novel work is due by this Wednesday. I have spoken to each child individually as check-in. Please ask your child about his or her progress.

-We are wrapping up our decimal unit in math. Kids will get study guides tomorrow (Tuesday 2/27) and the test will be this Friday.

-Tomorrow is our last day of Circle of Giving. Any last minute cash or product donations for Green Gables should come in tomorrow morning. Thank you all for your donations. The kids have enjoyed learning about philanthropy with the high school kids.

-Wednesday I'll be taking the kids to the high school for a concert from 1:30-2:30 so heads up just in case anybody was planning an early pick up that day for an appt.

-5th grade repro health lessons will be before Spring Break. You should have received information from the office about the two scheduled parent meetings if you'd like to preview the material or have any questions. Otherwise, permission slips will be in your child's conference folder.

-Our big STARBASE field trip is coming's actually 5 field trips. Permission slips will be in your child's conference folder and I can chat with you then if you wish to chaperone at all. However, I want to give all of you the dates now so you can prepare ahead of time when booking ortho appts and what-not as we are gone from the 9:10 a.m. until 3:30 on the following 5 school  days: March 20, 28, April 10, 17, and 24. All are Tuesdays except we go one Wednesday- 3/28. 

See ya soon! 

Conference Date & Times in Planners

posted Feb 15, 2018, 11:53 AM by Jamie Kellogg

The kids have scheduled parent-teacher conference dates and times stapled into planners coming home today. Please look for that tonight and feel free to take the slip out and keep it at home as a reminder.

Those of you that returned the time request, I was able to give you a time that you requested. Kids that did not return slips with requested dates/times, I went ahead and scheduled a time for you and sent it home. Hopefully, it works. If not, feel free to reach out to me and we'll see if we can find another time that works.
