Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the week:
     Because this week will only be a 3-day week for students, our class will be working on all the letters we've learned so far -- including the letter, sound, keyword and proper formation. This includes: t, b, f, i, u, m, n, c, o, a, g, e, r, p, and j! Last week we began sounding out short words that we are thankful for --- Mom, Dad, Cats, Dogs, Pets, School, Family, etc.! Our class is making tremendous growth! We will be talking a lot about our science project (watching our pumpkin decompose) and make both predictions and observations on what we observe. The kids are so proud of this project! We will also be focusing on what we are thankful for and what deserves appreciation! We will discuss the concept of charity and giving to those in need, which will prepare us for our donation walk to  St. Vincent's on November 22nd! (Please sign and return your child's permission slip!)
     Parent conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, November 8th. Please check your email for a link to the Sign-Up Genius page where you can choose a conference slot. If you haven't received the email, please let me know and I will send it to you! An email reminder from Sign-Up Genius will be sent out tomorrow, November 7th to confirm your assigned time slot. Please be aware that our conference time is only scheduled for 15-minutes!
