"Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11." President Obama
What a great first two weeks!
Extra year books for sale in the office!
Our 4th grade class field trip to Madison is set for Friday, October 9th. We will be taking coach busses down there and the students will need to be to school by 5:45 am and picked up later in the day after the busses leave (approximately 5 pm). If you are interested in chaperoning and riding the bus you would have needed to fill out the paperwork that's attached to the below document by the beginning of this week. If you still want to chaperone and are driving, please still let me know. Thanks!
Homework Planner Checked Nightly Please!
ALSO the students should be using the "calendar" in schoology to see their math homework from their other teachers.
Let me know if you have any questions!
In writing we had our first timed writing prompt on narrative writing. We use these to compare a beginning product and ending product and see how far they have come after being instructed in a writing unit.
