MRS. DETTMER'S NOTES

Another great week at Rockcreek. We had school pictures on Wednesday with the makeup day in October, practiced our drills, had Myoshi visitors, and Kicked off the Walkathon!


Please look below and in your child's backpack for information about the Walkathon.


Qualities of an Expert Learner -

This week our focus was on being resourceful and knowledgeable. What does this mean? Students can scan the room for resources on how to correctly write a letter or spell a word, ask a friend during stations for help on the directions or to read a word, work with parents at home on the skills being covered in class, etc. Please ask your child this week how they are being resourceful and knowledgeable. Being resourceful and knowledgeable is something we can help students become outside of school too. Thank you for your help as we continue to work with our students to become Expert Learners.


Next week we will focus on being goal-directed and strategic. We set goal earlier in the year, however we are almost 4 weeks into school. Have we met our goal yet? Is it time to set new goals? Do we need to revisit our goals and be strategic about how we are going to reach our goals?

Trunk or Treat

I know October 19th seems like it is pretty far out, but we are looking for volunteers already! Please let us know if you are interested in having a trunk or volunteering in another way for a 30 min. shift. We are looking for volunteers with games, food, and as many trunks as we can get! This year our theme is camping or adventures! Let's be creative!
