Mrs. Waddell's Class

4th Grade

Field Trip!

Our first field trip will be to a Native American village and presentation at the Cumming Fairgrounds next Tuesday, October 13. Permission slips were sent home on Monday, both as a hard copy and via email. Permission forms are due TOMORROW! The cost of the trip is $7. If you are not able to send in the $7 right now, please let me know and the school can help. We are looking forward to our trip!

Graded Papers

The next set of graded papers will be sent home tomorrow. Please look over them, sign, and return them as soon as possible. I keep these so that I can discuss them with you at conferences. If you have any concerns, just let me know and we can work on them together.

Conferences

Fall conferences are coming soon! The county dates for these 1/2 days are October 21 and 22, with students also being out October 23. I sent out a sign-up genius for these dates, and I have not heard from everyone. I would love to meet with you and discuss your child's progress at school. I can resend the email if necessary; please let me know. I look forward to meeting with everyone!

New Incentives & Behavior System

We are trying out a new system that uses classroom money and has a "passport" that will be signed by parents as needed. I felt that we might need a system that motivated students a bit better, and had parents sign the passport when behavior needs to be improved. I hope this doesn't cause too much confusion, and will also be more motivating to some of the kiddos. So far so good!
