Sight Words

Several students are doing a great job practicing their words at home! It definitely shows on our weekly tests! If you're not practicing EVERY NIGHT please begin to do so.

Sweaters and Jackets!

The cooler weather has arrived! Please make sure your child has a jacket or coat. We will go outside if the wind chill/temperature is above 40 degrees. :)


We are completely out of snacks & will not be having our afternoon snack until we have supplies. See below for good suggestions. Thanks so much for making sure our students aren't hungry in the afternoon!!

Scholastic Book Order

This order will be due December 1st. I will only be doing one order for November and December. Books make great Christmas gifts! Be on the look out for a this week. You can always order online:

Remember: Every time you order books for your child our class gets points to spend on free classroom resources!

Classroom Information

Water Bottle: Students are encouraged to bring a SPILL PROOF water bottle with them to school each day.

Extra Clothes: Please make sure your child has an extra change of clothes in their backpack each day in case of accidents.

Birthdays: We celebrate birthdays at 2:15 PM. If you would like to send cupcakes or cookies for your child's birthday, please have them in the office before this time. Please understand, district policy limits this celebration to store bought cookies or cupcakes. No party favors or juice allowed.

Snack Time: We are still needing snack donations for our snack time. Suggestions are: Goldfish, Animal Crackers, Pretzels, Cheez-Its, Saltines, etc.

Box Tops: Please clip Box Tops and send with your student to school! Money from the Box Tops goes directly back to our classroom!
