Dates to Remember

September 2: Labor Day (NO SCHOOL)

September 10: Fall Pictures


Box Tops

Our school collects box tops year round. If you have box tops at home, please send them in at any time. Box tops can be found on hundreds of packages. Our school earns 10 cents for every box top, which adds up quickly!

What We Are Learning

Our School Improvement Goal at Schofield Elementary is to make sure that 80% or more of our students are proficient with Missouri Learning Standards for math and literacy. Here is what we will be learning this week to work toward this goal.


READING - We will be learning reading station expectations for the next 2 weeks.

MATH - We will begin learning about place value to the millions.


My homework pages will be coming home in your child's home/school folder almost every night. If these aren't getting home, please let me know asap. I strongly encourage your child to work on these at home every night that we have them. It's a great way to practice their math at home. It gives them an opportunity to show you what they are learning about along with practicing. I give a little incentive to my kiddos if they bring all of their homeworks from the unit back. Thanks for your help with this!


WRITING - We will begin setting up our writing binders and practice building writing stamina.

SCIENCE/S.S. - We will study the engineering process and begin creating an egg drop contraption.


The 7 Habits


Students are reviewing all 7 habits. We will also begin putting our leadership binders together.

Parent Involvement

Schofield has many opportunities for families to volunteer and be involved during the school day. If you are interested in the below parent involvement opportunities, please contact Ms. Markie Bravestone, Schofield’s Assistant Principal, at markie.bravestone@republicschools.org.

  • Watch D.O.G.S. Dads

    • Dads spend the day mentoring students and helping around the school.

  • Super M.O.M.S.

    • Greet students at the beginning of the day

    • Help with breakfast of lunch

    • Help in the art room or library

    • Read to your lifelong learner’s class

In addition to the above opportunities during the school day, parents can attend PTO Meetings, assemblies, special building events and serve on the Parent Lighthouse Team. Communication about these events are on Schofield’s Facebook page and in monthly building newsletters.


Celebrations

We are working towards 50 tiger paws! We currently have 14.

Attendance Goals

Schofield's proportional attendance rate for the month so far is ____%. Remember our building level goal is to have a proportional attendance rate of more than 95%.


Each day that we have 100% attendance in our classroom we will place one letter of the word ATTENDANCE on the board. When we complete the word we will celebrate as a class!


As always, thanks for your help in making sure students get to school each day!
