Mrs. Dixon's Weekly Enewsletter
Home to Planet Dixon's Out of this World 3rd Graders!
Can you believe it's already February?! Please see below for some important dates to remember in February! We are back to our normal homework menu...HOWEVER, students MUST choose one math activity and one writing...if you do more you can earn extra credit Dixon Dollars! I will be checking h.w. on Fridays as I used to.
- Thurs. 2/11: Report Cards go home (please see below for more information)
- Thurs 2/11: President's Day and Valentine's Day Activities (students bring in valentine's if desired- see below)
- Thurs. 2/11: A.R. Cutoff- work on those A.R. points, scholars!
- Fri 2/12 and Mon. 2/15- President's Day/ No School
Report Cards, Goal Setting, and Reading/A.R.
Meanwhile, I am working on report cards and they will be going out next week. Although we don't have parent-teacher-student goal setting like November, I will be having goal setting conferences with each scholar to plan goals for the rest of the year. Please look out for that to sign within the next two weeks.
Reading/A.R.: A CLASS goal is to work harder on reading and taking A.R. quizzes. This is a school-wide program and it's really beneficial for students to practice this online assessment and to check their comprehension. Scholars, reading for 20 minutes a night is NOT OPTIONAL and is very important h.w...I challenge you to focus on this and taking A.R. tests much more frequently. Keep up the reading!
Friendship Day- (Valentine's Activities) Next Thursday
Welcome Mrs. Rowland...Planet Dixon's Teacher Candidate (student teacher)
Are your Class Dojo notifications on? Please make sure they are!
We also are using Class Dojo more for classroom management so please check in with your scholar if you see negative dojo points. Remember, these are reminders only...do not be concerned unless you see a pattern or many negative dojos.
