Calling Volunteers

I need Volunteers to come in from 10-11:30 AM March 23rd- April 2nd. I would LOVE to have 2 people a day! If you have a date that you can come, please e-mail me!!

Make sure that you have a background check and anti bullying on file! :)

Clean 2 Liter Bottles

Send in clean 2 liter bottles for our Spring Party on March 20th! Send the bottles in by the 15th so that we know what we still need!


If you are ever out shopping and see card games for kids, LET ME KNOW!! I learned a lot during the Day of Play in early February. We liked playing Old Maid and the kids LOVED Twister. They spoke to me about getting more card games. I unfortunately shop at the new Walmart and thats about it. Send me an e-mail and I will go shopping!





Our largest fundraiser for the entire school year is just around the corner. CRES FEST our annual carnival night is APRIL 24 from 5:30-8pm! We need your support in order for this night to be successful. Each classroom for every grade is asked to donate a themed basket for our silent auction. Miss. Mitchell’s is MOVIE NIGHT. I will have a basket in Miss. Mitchell’s classroom for donations for our basket. This donation is optional. Ideas for donations include but not limited to: gift cards to local movie theater, candy, large popcorn bowl, blanket, popcorn maker, flavored salts for popcorn, or fun drinking cups with lids… I could keep going but I am sure you have already come up with a fabulous idea! If you would like to make a cash/check donation that is welcome as well. Make checks out to CRES PTO- put check/cash in envelope labeled to NICOLE DUNN. I will buy a gift card to IMAX Theater with all $ donates!

Behavior Plan

Please review our behavior plan: Students will color in a word after completing tasks. The goal is to color all the way to the !. Please look to see if they have had any reminders during the day or notes and sign in the notes box. It will be in their GO folder each night!

I also added an in class reading log. I am making students accountable for their independent reading time. :)

At the end of the week, if they have made it to the ! each day, they get a coupon AND a trip to the treasure box! If they make it to the word DAY each day, they get a coupon!

This week we will be focusing on exact time to the minute, 5 minutes, half hour.

Moby Max:

Moby Max is a website that is used for MANY different reasons. The reason that we as educators like it is for Math. I like how it gives the students math at their level. It also self motivates by allowing game time when tasks are completed. Everyone is set up but not everyone has been on yet!
