Mrs. Clontz's News

Weekly Newsletter

What's going on this week?

What are we learning?

Math: Calendar, weather graphing, counting to 20

Reading Workshop: Ways to read and interact with a book, what readers do when they finish a book

Writing Workshop: Different types of books, exploring text structures, what should I include in my book, how do I know when I am finished

Social Studies: Democracy, rules, rights and responsibilities

Important News in our Classroom:

We are working on independence and responsibility in our classroom. If you could help your child practice tying their shoes and opening things in their lunchboxes, that would be very helpful.

Monday, we have extra PE. Please make sure your child wears tennis shoes and girls, no skirts or dresses unless they wear shorts underneath.

We will have snack time everyday. Please send in one snack with your child each day. We do not need drinks because we have a water fountain in our classroom.

We did great remembering whose day it was to share this week but just in case you forgot, below you will find what day your child can share:

Monday-Jayden, Emily, Owen, Urias

Tuesday-Christian, Alex, Nathan, Evelyn

Wednesday-Janiyah, Reid, Makayla, Isaiah

Thursday-Garrett, Taylor, Ethan, Aubre

Friday-Lindsey, Lolabelle, Maygan, Elizabeth

The students can just tell the class something or they can bring something from home to share. Please make sure you know if they are bringing something in and it is school appropriate. If we are out on a day when your child shares, I am sorry but we will not have time to make it up, they will just miss sharing that week.

Important Dates:

No school on Monday. Please enjoy this time with your families in observance of Labor Day!

Thursday, September 5-Boy Scout Night

Important News from our School:

Please complete this parent survey by Sept. 6.


In an effort to encourage healthy living and learning, soft drinks are not allowed at school. This includes lunches, even those brought from home or brought in to share with students, and special class treats.
