Mrs. Tucker and Some of Her "Little Turkeys!"
Here is our Roadrunner Weekly for the week of December 2nd through December 6th. We hope everyone has had a great Thanksgiving week off! We have just three weeks before Christmas break, and we wanted to remind you that the week of December 16th through the 20th are all 1:40 early release days.
This week, we will have our "Santa Shop" open Wednesday through Friday. "Santa Shop" gives our kids the opportunity to buy inexpensive holiday gifts for family and friends.
Also, this Friday, December 6th from 5:30-7:30, our 4th grade teachers and students will be hosting a movie night fundraiser showing the film "Elf". This is a great time to "drop and shop" for a couple of hours or sneak out for a date night while we watch your First St. student! Please see below for more details.
As a weekly reminder, i-Ready is an important skill builder that our kids can access at school and at home. Our teachers try to build in time during the school day for some practice, but we also encourage your child to continue using it at home also as the program recommends a minimum of 45 minutes per subject, per week to help build math and ELA skills.
Lastly, please check out our staff websites to keep current on homework and class events.
Have a great week!

Reminder About After School Enrichments
I just wanted to send out a reminder about some of the after school enrichments we are offering this year. The offerings below are through independent business that have contracted with us so that we can offer their programs on our campus. Financial assistance is often available if needed, but you’ll have to contact them directly. “Skills After School” soccer clinic and Early Engineers have just begun (you can still sign up at a prorated cost), and Firefly Art is scheduled to begin its next sessions soon; be sure to get signed up if you’d like your student to participate. Click on the registration links below to learn more.
C.H.A.M.P.S. (formerly known as PTC) stands for "Committed to Honoring and Motivating Parents and Students". Parents play a vital role in helping to fundraise, plan school functions, and guide the direction of our school. See the flyers attached below for more information, and please contact Lisa Chandra at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
