Ms. O'Quin's Class

Update: Week of 9.28.15

I loved seeing everyone at our Family Game Night! Here's what is coming up next week!

Sign Up for a Fall Conference

Believe it or not, our fall conferences are right around the corner! This year we we will have one afternoon and one morning set aside for conferences. Please click here to sign up. All sign ups will be done online. Thank you.

Limeades for Learning! Help us get free items for our classroom!

Each year Sonic sponsors a program called Limeades for Learning. Teachers from all over the country submit projects and work to earn votes for them. Each week Sonic selects projects and funds them through Donor's Choose.

I have a project posted to get an iPad mini for our classroom!

Here's how you can help:

Vote: Each day visit the project page and vote! You earn more votes by sharing the project on social media and through email.

Eat/Drink at Sonic: Each time you make a purchase at Sonic they will give you a sticker with a code on it. This code is worth TWO extra votes! Many times if you will ask they will give you additional stickers. You can just send these to school with your kiddo and I will enter them for you! :)

Please click here to vote for our project starting Monday, September 28th.


It is very important that all paperwork is turned in as soon as possible. You will receive copies of the required paperwork if you have not yet turned in the forms. Want to save time? Consider filling out the forms online! Click here to fill out all GISD paperwork online. Also, please return the required attendance contract as soon as possible.

Sweaters and Jackets!

As cooler weather approaches, please make sure that your child's name & "Ms. O'Quin" is written in their jacket or sweater. This will help us get the item back to you in the event that it is lost!

Box Tops

Please clip Box Tops and send with your student to school! Money from the Box Tops goes directly back to our classroom!

Volunteer Needed!

I am in desperate need of some weekly help in our class! I need someone to come tear out math pages, sort papers, and make copies! Please let me know if you are available.
