Ms. Borgert's Weekly Buzz
November 13, 2015
Notes from the teacher
Congratulations to our class for getting their 50th class wow!! These are wows that are mostly given from other teachers around the building when they see the class showing high five behavior in the hallways, during Discovery time, during lunchtime etc. I am so very proud of them! We will vote next week to see how we want to celebrate next Friday, the 20th. They were very excited. We thought of ideas today ("Party in the House" was the funniest), but the buzz has been Pajama Day. I'll keep you posted!
I was out yesterday afternoon getting a tire issue fixed on my car and saw when I came back that many had not brought their book bag homework home. Those who did not bring it home have it in their backpacks tonight. If you don't get to it over the weekend, that is fine and you can feel free to send the bags back on Tuesday.
Thanks so much for the All for One books donations this week for our classroom for the book fair. Not only did your donations get matched to help charities to give books to those in need, they also helped our school get books for the library, AND helped our classroom get a few new books. Thanks again for your generosity! I showed the class the books today and they are excited to read them!
It's getting colder outside! We will typically go outside for recess if it's above 32 degrees, so please make sure to send coats and gloves as temperatures begin to drop. Please remember to write your child's name on their belongings, as many go unclaimed in the lost and found when not labeled.
We talked this week about Veteran's day and the many branches of the military. We also talked about what it means to be brave, courageous, and patriotic. There were many stories of relatives they know have who served; it was really sweet to hear their stories!
Have a great weekend!

Hello wonderful parents! This is Mrs. Foust with our news from Discovery. This week we continued our unit on Family. We discussed how our families are all different and special in their own ways. We also read the book, The Little Scarecrow Boy by Margaret Wise Brown. Students had fun making their own scarecrows!
