Vocabulary Instructional Focus 2015-16

What did you do last week to teach, Incognito? Zany? Erroneous? Our new word this week is BAFFLE, hard to understand or solve.

We haven't had any Vocabulists sent to the office for a tag yet so please be sure you have shared the levels and prizes with the kids (see last two weeks' newsletters for details)! I really want to recognize kids for building their vocabulary!

Thank you to everyone for your help with our food drive!! We are over 6,000 items and we still need everyone to enter their count! We are trying to get a district truck to come help us with transporting everything to Community Link. We will need help with the loading and unloading. I am working on Tuesday after school, but I will let you know!

Thank you to all of our classroom teachers are diligently working many extra hours to conference with parents! We appreciate your efforts and know that those honest conversations will pay off in the future!!

I hope you are reflecting on things for which you are thankful! I am thankful for each of you and the part you play in the lives of our kids! Have a wonderful week and a blessed Thanksgiving break!


Teach the vocab word of the week! Pictures and details can be found above!

The November writing topic is "What are three things you appreciate about your teacher and why" These are due to Robin by 11/18.

Flocabulary will be presented at the November staff meeting so be sure to set up your account.
