Yearbooks

If you did not purchase a yearbook in August on “fee day,” your child will be bringing home a yearbook order form. Until January 29th, the cost of a yearbook is $14. If there are extra yearbooks at the end of the school year, the cost will be $18.

Word Study Words

Each week your child focuses on comparing a different feature in word study. In the beginning of the week we sort these words and will be posting them to Seesaw. All week long we will do different activities with them and at the end of the week we take a "spell check" to see how well they have mastered the feature.

What's happening in...

Reading:
  • Read/re-read and discuss stories in reading books
  • If your child does not bring home a reading book, please have them read for 10 minutes at home. This time can include you reading to your child.

General Information

Peak View has approximately 70 self-identified families who have indicated a need for food assistance on the weekends. We are currently feeding 145 children every week. Our program, which has grown exponentially this year, is looking for financial support. The cost to sponsor one child for an academic year is approximately $200. Would you consider supporting this worthwhile cause to help end hunger for children in our school community?

Our PTA will gladly accept any donation offered. Checks can be made out to: Peak View PTA Backpack Program. You will be issued a receipt as this is a charitable donation.

Homework

Reading books will continue to come home this week. Please keep reading the assigned story with your child. If they forget their book one day please read for 10 minutes instead. Once your child has read the story listed to you please sign and return the reading log and book for the next day. It is great to re-read stories that we have previously read, but please do not read ahead. Thanks!
