The Chatterbox

All Things Worth Chatting About in Ms. Wagner's Class

Sparkle Shop MONDAY!

Our class will be going to the Sparkle Shop first thing Monday morning! Please check your child's folder for the white packet explaining the Sparkle shop. Most items are $1-$3 and students are allowed to purchase up to 8 items. Please do not send anymore that $25 with your student. All money should be sent in the envelope attached to the packet.

THE PTA IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF VOLUNTEERS FOR THE SPARKLE SHOP. IF YOU CAN VOLUNTEER ANY TIME TO HELP, PLEASE create a log-in at http://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm and then sign up. If you have difficulty signing up this way, please email the PTA at shambaughpta@gmail.com

Thank you for your support!

**There will be a "last chance" day on Friday, December 19th for students who forget their money on Monday.**

Spring Concert T-Shirt Time- Need 12 more froms!

Spring Concert papers went out last week. Please make sure to turn them in as soon as possible. Have your student let me know if you need another one.

Mr. Rasor would like to wrap up T-shirt sales for the Spring Concert before winter break. If you are new to Shambaugh, Mr. Rasor puts on a Spring Concert with ALL of the students at Shambaugh. This is always an incredible event for all of our kids. It is REQUIRED that everyone gets a T-shirt. If you are unable to purchase one, please STILL RETURN THE FORM AND CHECK THAT YOU WOULD LIKE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE.

CELEBRATING GREAT BEHAVIOR!

Our class has been working together since the beginning of the year to fill in a "hundreds chart." They earn one number when the entire class is behaving at the same time. They also lose a number if they are not following directions as a class. I am very proud of their work! They are a great class!

All students were allowed to give suggestions of the reward and then we voted and made a choice together. Our decision was to celebrate by having a pajama day on Thursday, December 18th! Students who chose to wear pajamas must wear pajama PANTS that are appropriate for school. This will be a fun day!

Hour of Code!

"Coding" is used in just about everything technical in our world. This week our school participated in the nationwide "Hour of Code." We learned about computer programming, and actually practiced coding with a language called "Blockly." Ask your student about this special day, or have them show you online!

We also had a special visitor on our day of coding. Ashley Smith, a software engineer from Exelis, came and talked to our grade about her job. We are so thankful she was able to visit with our class.

About code.org from their website:
Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. We believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
