A Note From Miss Kelly

Hello families!

Students' spelling words are being sent home every other week (they have the same list for 2 weeks). Students do not need to do anything with them at home, they are being sent so parents know what words they are working on. Cutting apart and practicing their words is an optional extra activity that students can do if they want (or you're noticing they need more practice).

The elementary book fair will be going on next week in the presentation room. This is a great opportunity to expand students personal library and grow as readers. The books are priced so that the vast majority cost about 20qr to 25qr each (but some can cost as much as 80qr). They are priced comparably to what they would be priced at in book fairs in schools in the United States. We will go as a class on Monday, October 12. Please note, kids will have to use cash to purchase books, we cannot use the Dragon Bracelets at the book fair. If you wish to visit the fair on your own, it will be open half an hour before and after school as well as throughout the entire school day on Wednesday and Thursday.

Parent Teacher Conferences will be on October 21 and 22. The office will be sending home a sign up email next week when you can pick your day and time.
