Classroom News

Please make sure your child has a light jacket for recess. These last few days have been cool and many students have nothing but a short sleeve shirts.

This week a form for Summer School was sent home last week. If you do not plan to have your child attend, please be sure to send the form back marking the box that your child will not attend. They need to be returned no later than Monday!!!

An orange paper from Dr. Henry, the superintendent, was sent home last week. This form asks if your child will be attending the Waynesville School District for the 2016-17 school district. These forms are needed back ASAP. They need to returned no later than Monday!!!

Book Orders are due Friday the 15th! This will be the LAST book orders of the year. You can order online at the link below. Our class code is NBJCJ.

Many students are advancing to higher levels on their reading books. As student progress to harder levels it is important to listen to them read and make sure they are correctly and fluently reading the words. (Many of the harder words will be from memorization, but I am looking for the sight words they are identifying in each book.) It is ok if students do not return a book everyday. I would rather they read the book fluently than worrying about having it returned daily. With the harder levels students might take longer to read each book and I don't want them to have to do homework for longer than 15-20 minutes a night.

Usbourne fundraiser is due Friday the 15th. Remember your child needs 300 minutes of reading. Count homework books!! If you need some extra minutes, please let me know. We can include minutes read at school. The web address to make a wish list is and your child will get 50% of their pledges!

Snacks are due on the first Monday of the month. However, we do NOT need snacks! Some parents have been very giving and have brought snacks more then one time in a month! Thank you so much for your donations of extra snacks!! I am running out of room to place snacks that do not fit in our snack bucket! :-)

Have a great weekend!

Upcoming Field Trip - Park

We are planning a trip to the park on April 22nd. Permission slips will be sent home when we have final approval through the office. We will know if there will be a fee once we have approval. Students can bring a sack lunch or can get a sack lunch from the cafeteria for a normal lunch fee. Parent chaperones will not be needed for this trip, but will be welcome for our May 13th trip to Bennet Springs.

Super Improvers!

Congratulations to our friends moving up the wall!
