Book Fair is here!

From Mrs. Hicks...

Our book fair will be set up in our Library during the week of Oct. 12-Oct. 16. It will be open for family shopping on the evenings of Oct. 13, 14, and 15 from 4:00-6:30. Students do NOT shop at the book fair during school hours. If they want to come to the fair, they must come with a family member/adult during the evening hours. I will open the fair each afternoon for parent shopping only. These hours will be from 1:00-3:00.

What's Happening This Week?

· Writer's Workshop: Students will be using the website kidblog.org to publish their personal narratives. Kidblog is a site set up for classrooms. It allows me to create a workspace where the students can share work with each other and comment, without it going public.

· Reader's Workshop: We will be spending time preparing for student led conferences. Students will be creating an agenda, picking work samples, and practicing this week.

· Math Workshop: We will continue to practice rounding numbers to the closes 10 and 100 this week.

· Social Studies: We will begin reading about communities and how our community compares to others around us.

Lunch Visits and Background Checks

All guests and parent volunteers must have their background check completed prior to volunteering at school or having lunch with their child. The online background checks will take time to process. You do not need to complete a background check prior to visiting if you have had one done in HSE within the past 3 years. ALL guests must also complete an online anti-bullying training webinar.
