Mary's Weekly Update 10-11-17

Weekly Report

I do not send a Weekly Report out if we are not in school on a Friday.  We generally are not out on consecutive Fridays, so you will have a report the following week.

Student Presentations!

Every Thursday we set aside time for students to present to the class.  Over the next two weeks I will be asking each student to do a very short presentation on something that is important to them.  This could be a person, a pet, a personal object, or a book.  They will need to show that "item" (or a picture of it) and talk for 1-3 minutes about the personal significance of it.  I will split the group presentations over the two Thursdays of the period (I will add time on other days, if needed).  So please have a conversation with your student about a possible topic for this presentation!

Parent Conferences

Please be on the lookout for an email regarding Parent Conferences at the end of the month.  The email will have a link allowing you to sign-up for a time slot.  Please allow lunch times and after hours time slots for parents who are unable to attend during normal classroom hours.  Your student is expected to attend their meeting.

Curriculum Sharing Night

We will be having "Curriculum Sharing Night" on Wednesday, October 18th from 3:05-4:05 and 6-7pm.  Please come into the classroom to see all of the work they have been doing so far.  This is also an opportunity to find out what the heck a "stamp game" is or "Hands-on Equations"!

Vision Screening

The annual vision screen is next Friday, October 20.  Dr. Foley’s colleague Betty will be doing the screening this year again.

Birthday Bash

Our Birthday Bash for October birthdays will be held on October 20th.  If your student has a birthday that month, please feel free to send in a healthy snack on that date.

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