Ritchey Woods Study Trip

Ritchey Woods

Our first study trip to Ritchey Woods is Wednesday, October 21, 2015. Please make sure your child brings a completely disposable sack lunch and dresses appropriately for the weather. If your child will need a sack lunch from school, please let me know no later than Monday, October 19th.

Thank you to Mr. Haynes and Mrs. Reed for chaperoning this study trip! If you have any questions, please let me know. It should be a fund day full of learning!

First Quarter Report Cards

Report Cards are available for you to view on Skyward. If you have any problems accessing your child's report card, please let me know. If you are having any issues with Skyward, please call the office at 317-594-4310.

Curriculum Update

Homework sheets were not sent home today. Your child will receive their new homework paper with their spelling and sight words when they return from fall break.

Reading - We will discuss story elements and continue practicing how to retell a story. We will also continue our Amy Krause Rosenthal author study.

Writing - We will continue crafting our narrative pieces of writing.

Grammar - We will continue to learn about nouns, plural nouns and proper nouns.

Math - We will continue working on place value.

Spelling: Due to fall break, we will not have new spelling or sight words this week. We will use next week to review our previous spelling and sight words.

Science & Social Studies: We will continue discussing goods and services.

Art Supplies

Students will be working in art class to create a paper mache piggy bank. Ms. Meyer is asking for help collecting the recycled supplies necessary for the project. She is in need of empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Please send items in a bag with your child to school and we will make sure they are delivered to Ms. Meyers. Thank you for your support!

Toys at School

Please remind your children that toys are not allowed at school. They are very distracting to our learning. Any toys found in the classroom will be taken and returned to your child at the end of the school day.

Liger Mile

Thank you to all who participated in the Liger Mile! It was fun to see all the pictures of our Thorpe Creek Cardinals in attendance!

Fall Fundraiser

Our Fall Fundraiser has started! A blue information sheet came home with your child earlier this week. This is a no-sell fundraiser in which all proceeds go directly to TCE. The fundraiser will continue thru October 31st. Every child who raises $10 or more will bring home a prize and every family who donates $50 or more will be entered in a raffle to win an iPod Touch! Thank you for all of your support!

Vision Screening

On November 16th, 1st grade students at Thorpe Creek will be given a vision screening. Dr. Jim Daugherty and Dr. Jillian Pall from Fishers Eye Care will be doing the vision screens for all of our 1st grade students throughout the district. There is no cost for the vision screening and you will be notified if your student’s results indicate a concern.
