Think and Wonder.

Wonder and Think.

We have really started to settle into a routine this week, and the students are having a lot of fun.  Once again, thank you for letting us borrow them every day!

Workplan Report

We use a two-week workplan in this classroom, so on Fridays, I will send home a report which outlines what your student has been working on during that timeframe.  One of the assignments for students is to ensure that a family member or guardian signs the report and then they return it to the classroom on the following Monday.  Students are expected to read for at least 20 minutes each night during the week as homework, so the workplan report signature is also certifying that that reading work has been completed.


Each student needs to bring a packed lunch every day.  We do not have a microwave or a refrigerator in the classroom, so all the items in their lunch need to be shelf-stable.  We also do not have cutlery available, so please be sure to include it if needed.

Parent Meeting

Our classroom's Parent Meeting is on Tuesday, September 19th, from 6:30 to 7:30pm in the classroom.  I strongly encourage everyone to attend since this is where I will be communicating our plans for the year and explaining many of the guidelines that we will use in the classroom.  Your student is welcome to attend the meeting with you.  

Birthday Bash

Our September Birthday Bash will be held on Friday, September 22nd.  You may send a healthy snack for all in the classroom to share on that day.

Picture Day

We will have Picture Day on Wednesday, September 20th.  

PS:  Please return the Friday Folder and the Workplan Report to the classroom on Monday!
