Sharon's Weekly Update 1-25-17

Hello, Room 9 families!

It's official: We're back from break! It was a difficult transition, but Room 9 students seem to be finding ways to settle in.

One of the hardest routines to reestablish is completing work. Right now, I'm seeing a lot of students struggle to find good work spaces and bring back work they completed at home. In order to facilitate better work habits, I am requesting completed homework to be turned in before a student goes to recess on Monday. Please help us by asking your student on Friday if he or she has homework to complete during the weekend. If your student knows that he or she will not have time to complete homework over the weekend, please help your student plan accordingly by bringing homework during the week prior to its due date.

We would still love to see your student's indoor shoes! Boots are invaluable during recess but CANNOT BE WORN AT PE, nor in the classroom after they go outside (the mud gets insane!). Please make sure your student has appropriate footwear for PE and for classroom interactions.

Please join us TONIGHT for Planned Parenthood's PARENT PREVIEW NIGHT for Human Growth and Development. We'll be meeting at 6:00 in Room 9.  You will be able to ask questions of the presenters and view some of the materials that students will encounter during their three sessions on Human Growth and Development. (6th grade students will have two reproduction lessons during human biology with me, and will then have a presentation from Planned Parenthood about healthy relationships.)

If you or your student is interested in helping to plan the END OF YEAR TRIP, we will be meeting after school on Feb. 7th to discuss details. Please join us!

Grandperson's day is Friday, Feb. 3rd. Please check with Cynthia in the office if you are available to volunteer for this event.
