The Week in Review
In Social Studies, our students are working with their teams to create great slogans, graphics, and presentations about their colony; Maryland, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Maryland.
OVERTIME... What is it? What's it for?
How it works:
If your child does not turn in a given assignment on the day it is due, they will receive a "Memory Jogger." This is to be signed and returned with the completed assignment the next day. If the Memory Jogger is returned and the assignment is completed, your child will not receive an Overtime slip. If the Memory Jogger is not returned, and/or the assignment is not completed the next day, your child will receive an OVERTIME slip. Overtime is mandatory, and once received, is the expectation. If your child brings back the assignment before the day of Overtime, their attendance at OVERTIME is still required.
We hope to use this time to give students a place to finish those late assignments, and encourage you to talk to your child about the importance of turning work in on time to be able to avoid Overtime altogether.

The prime suspect at this point is Nyx. Nyx is never seen bothering others and sticks largely to himself, but he is the only fish in the tank that is large enough to take a bite out of another fish. My opinion is Nyx needs a friend in the tank, and that is something that will be worked on over the next few months.
Apollo and Flick are still buddy-buddy. Although, I'm not sure I can call it buddy-buddy because I'm unsure of Apollo's true feelings toward Flick. Flick follows Apollo's every movement, and I can only imagine how Apollo feels.
At Austin Elementary, we are driven to unlock the passion and cultivate the uniqueness inherent in every learner.
