We are off to a great start to the year! Thank you for returning all of the back to school paperwork! I'm still missing a few things so I will be reaching out to those parents. I'm also missing a few of the activity fund paper. I need to get those in ASAP so I can order our class shirts. :) 

Homework
We will begin our homework regiment this week. We are starting slow, so we will only be adding our reading log and spelling practice activities this week. We will add a math page next week, sight words the following week, and fluency the week after that. The most important thing is that your child is reading every night! This week I will begin assessing every student for their reading level. Once I have determined your child's level, I will begin sending leveled books home. Until then, they may read books by either reading the words, the pictures, or reading by retelling a story that has been previously read to them. We encourage parents to read to their children, however this should not count as their 20 minutes of nightly reading. 

Reminders
  • Just a reminder that Back to School Night for the primary grades has been moved to Thus. 9/21. Please update your calendar. Please sign up to receive reminders through the Remind app. I will be resending info home with families that haven't signed up yet. This is a quick way for me to get reminders/updates out to parents. Also, I would love to see all of our families on the class dojo app. This is a way for you to see how your child is doing in class. 
  • The first installment for the activity fee is due this Thurs. 9/7.
