Clint's Weekly Update 9-11-14

posted Sep 11, 2014, 10:54 AM by Cynthia Friedman
I am excited about having the chance to start this school year with your child in my class! I am especially impressed by the community we have already started to build through Mini-Me creations, place mat designs, bookmarks, writing our philosophy of learning statements, the 3 Island Storyline for Cultural Studies, Weekly Word Studies, completing the first steps for the Calendar Projects, and much, more! 

It is already shaping up to be one successful year. 

Class meeting: On Monday, Sept. 15th from 6:30-7:30, Mary Kate and I will be hosting our annual class meeting to discuss the coming year. 

Classroom Basket Theme: The Ridgeline Rising Silent Auction and Block Party is just around the corner (October 11th to be exact)! Each classroom selects a theme for a basket to be included in the silent auction and students are invited to contribute theme related items valued at $10 or less OR donate $10 cash (to be used by volunteers to purchase items for the basket). Our classroom’s basket theme is ANIMALS! Our classroom is still in need of a basket organizer to collect basket items and assemble them. Please contact Cynthia ASAP if you would like to volunteer for this special project! 

No Microwave Use: Please send your child with a lunch that does not require microwave use. It uses up a lot of the kids’ lunch period to wait in line and also the teachers’ and assistants’ time to supervise. 

Thank you for all of the support and encouragement that you offer your child each and every day.  

Clint and Mary Kate
