Semi-Regular News for Novinger's Homeroom

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you all for the treats. Thanks to the many parents that helped. I hope everyone has a special day with those you love this weekend!

Parent Teacher Conference Day

Monday, February 15 is Parent Teacher Conference Day and a student holiday. Our fourth grade team has contacted the parents we would like to meet with for conferences. If you have not been contacted and would like to meet with me, please let me know and I am happy to schedule a time to meet.

Scholastic Book Order

Scholastic Book Orders went home in the Wednesday folder. If you are interested ordering new books, please do by February 26. Our classroom code is NGYLV.

Fire Station Field Trip

We had a great field trip to the Fire Station last Friday. Thank you to all the parents who sent snacks to share with our firefighters and to Holly Braun, Windy Joseph, and Stella Roberts for accompanying us. We learned the importance of having a meeting place and a plan in the event of fire.

Plans for the 2016-2017 School Year

In the Wednesday folder a couple of weeks ago, you should have gotten a letter of intent. This is not a commitment to attend next year. The district is trying to get an idea of how many students are planning on returning so we can plan for staffing for grade levels. You can easily change your mind at any point if your plans change--it is non-binding. Please turn in this form by Tuesday, March 1.
