Parent Teacher Conferences
Parent/Teacher Conferences this year at TCE will be a little different! We are all conducting Student Led Conferences! These conferences allow your child to be an important part by having them share their accomplishments and help create goals for the year. Directions were sent out on Wednesday of this week. Please be sure to sign up electronically for a conference date ASAP, if you haven't already! Conferences this year will take place from Monday, October 5th through Wednesday, October 21st. We can’t wait to celebrate your child’s learning with you!
Information for the Fall Fundraiser has been sent home. This is a "no sell" fundraiser and all donations will go directly to the school! If you would like to donate, please return the completed form that was send home last week with your child and include a monetary donation. You can also donate online at: httsp://paypal.me/TCEPTO

We Are Learning...
We are diving deeper into our Realistic Fiction texts! We will continue our discussion of the plot of a story. Students will distinguish the sequence of major events in a story.
We are busy writing our Realistic Fiction pieces! Many students are publishing their work and writing series of books about the same realistic character! We look forward to sharing some of our writing at our upcoming conferences!
Next week our class will be working on strategies for subtraction!
