Happy HALLOWEEN WEEK! We have a Halloween virtual field trip WEDNESDAY at 10 a.m.! Students will have a quick paper to fill out in the science folder for grade credit. I will still teach math, reading and writing in the 12:30 and 1:30 sessions.

REMINDER: All students who are at school are now completing work on a piece of paper. If your child is a 5-day student or a 2-day student, they will complete their work on paper. They will not complete on Showbie.

Remote learners will continue to complete on Showbie or the 2-day students when they are at home.

ALL STUDENTS need to still complete Zearn at home if needed AND read nightly.

ALL STUDENTS still have to complete work in 1 day.

ALL STUDENTS can also use Reading Eggs, Math Seeds, Spelling City, and Freckle at home for extra use of practice.


We have SPIRIT WEEK this week for Red Ribbon Week. Here is the schedule below:

  • Monday - Crazy Sock Day!
  • Tuesday - College/Career Day!
  • Wednesday - ALL RED Day!
  • Thursday - Red, White, and Blue Day!
  • Friday - Halloween Shirt Day!
No $1 is required. They must be appropriate for school. It is optional and it is not required to participate.

REMINDER: We are NOW taking SPELLING TESTS on Fridays. It's a different kind of format and I will walk the students through it.

For remote learners: They MAY NOT use notes, papers, agenda, someone else to complete it. When you see it, there should be no reason they can't do it on their own.

Make sure they STUDY their spelling words! Use Spelling City and their practice work in Writing during the week!


We will have a Halloween Drive Thru at Palmcroft on Thursday evening starting at 5:30! It's a great time to also show off your costume to your teacher and Palmcroft Staff!

More information to come as I get it!

October Reading Logs are due this FRIDAY COMPLETED! Make sure your child is completing these!

I sent them some SPOOKTACULAR Halloween books to read on Epic!


Return any Veterans forms so that we can recognize those that have served. We also would LOVE any photos of veterans to put in our video we are putting together on Thursday. This is WHY we would love our students to wear Red, White, and Blue!

Scholastic Book Orders will come home this week with in-class learners. Orders are due next Monday, November 2nd! Remote learners can click above on the link and order online! Thank you for your support!


Make sure to keep an eye on grades in Synergy. I am adding items all this week.

Students who are doing paper/pencil -- folder will come home this coming Friday for you to review notes and sign that you have looked over it. Thank you for all your help.

ALSO -- there are still a few assignments I graded this past weekend -- that have 0s. It is the student/family responsibility to locate them in Showbie and let me know if you'd like to complete for a late grade. They are the ones that have a 0 in yellow on them.

PLEASE CHECK for these -- including students who ARE in-person as many of those have 0s before I switched to paper.
