Library Books Due

If your child has received a slip from the library, please make sure they return their book as soon as possible. All library books were due today (12/11). They will gladly accept them next week. I believe they do inventory over break. Most students have returned their books. Our goal: all children's books returned before break! If your child has not returned it, a white library form has come home. Thanks for your help with this goal!

Next Week News...please read

We have some fun changes next week:
  1. Friday is an early dismissal day. Students will be released at 1pm.
  2. Instead of having Art on Thursday, we will have our monthly Assembly. We will have Art on Friday.
  3. Friday is also our Polar Express day. We will be wearing pajamas, enjoying popcorn and hot cocoa, while watching the movie "The Polar Express."
  4. No independent reading books will come home over vacation. Yeah! No homework!

Thank you so much to the parents that have sent in the Holiday Week Money already! If you haven't, please send in $3-5 for our craft/cookie week that we will start Monday. Thanks!

Rainbow Readers Reaching HIgher and Higher!

We have students reading and practicing each day, trying to earn that next spot on the Rainbow Wall each week. I am so proud of this year's group of readers. This is the BEST class in many years regarding our Rainbow Wall. They are reaching higher levels, faster than ever before! If your child is not on the wall yet, do not fret! They will at their own pace...once they are done learning their letters! For those students who already knew their letters, these sight words are the best motivation to keep on reaching!

Please help me give a huge shout-out to the following students for earning a new spot on the Rainbow Wall this week:
  • Orange: Sumo Alaqeel, Bentley Balboa
  • Yellow: Xavier Derr, Nathan Farias
  • Green: Ja'Qwann Edwards
  • Blue: Lorelei Braniff
  • Purple: Kylin Rigsby, Courtnee Maddox
  • Pink: Kylin Rigsby

Remarkable Readers

Students who read 10-15 books on their independent level get to move up to the next level! It is so great to see so many students reading nightly with their families. Please help me congratulate the following students for coloring a new petal/leaf on their "Growing Goals" poster that hangs in our classroom:
  • Aryelle Tautfetee
  • Savannah High
  • Kylin Rigsby
  • Lorelei Braniff

Is your child allergic to dogs? Please let me know...we will be having a "guest reader" in our classroom on Wednesday. Thank you!
