Hello Families,

Conference night #1 was a success! Thank you for everyone who came!

Conference night #2 is this Thursday, October 20th from 4:00-7:30. Reminders went home but if you cannot remember your date please email me.

SNACK REMINDER: Please do not send snacks with peanut butter or other nut products. Some snack ideas include cheese sticks, apple sauce pouches, crackers, pretzels, yogurt tubes, fresh fruit or vegetables etc. If the snack requires a utensil, it needs to be sent with the student.

Reading Focus: Visualizing

Writing Focus: True stories

Math Focus: Subtracting numbers up to 10,000

Social Studies Focus: Our land and resources

Science Focus: Earth's Surface

Reading Homework-Students should be reading for at least 15 minutes per night.

Math Homework-The math homework this week will be review of subtraction and will be due on Friday. In the following weeks, I will start assigning flash card practice as part of the nightly homework. It would be a good idea to make or purchase addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division flash cards.

Spelling Homework-cut out words and sort words each night.


  • The book fair is here this week and students will have time on Wednesday to buy books. Also on Thursday night, during conferences, the book fair will be open for parents to visit.
