Opening Week a Success!

Congratulations to all of the students and staff at Ruggles Lane School for a successful opening week! Once we got through the heat of opening day the rest of the week was a breeze. It was a pleasure for me to get into classrooms and see the school in action. Below are some of the exciting learning opportunities of which I was able to be a part:


  • Kindergarten: Learning about centers and meeting new friends during snack
  • 1st Grade: Singing The Classroom Rules Rap and participating in the Daily Five
  • 2nd Grade: Exploring our new Go Math! books and our Fundations materials
  • 3rd Grade: Getting introduced to Reader's and Writer's Workshop notebooks
  • 4th Grade: Writing about our first interactive read aloud and exploring our new math books
  • 5th Grade: Talking with students about what books they are reading during independent reading and taking a math test (I passed :) )
  • 6th Grade: Meeting new students in the Cafeteria - I plan to get in their classes next week!


As you can see from my travels, our learning adventure is off to an excellent start! I look forward to continuing to share it with you as the year progresses!


I hope many of you can join us for our annual Meet & Greet which will be this Thursday from 6:00-7:00. The teachers (and I am sure your children) are looking forward to meeting you and introducing you to their learning community!
