Dear King Families

First, I want to thank the PTO families who have continued to treat the King staff who have been in the building with donuts and coffee. It has been enjoyed by everyone, I assure you!


Just a reminder that today is the first day that we will be implementing the Universal Lunch/Recess hour from 12:00-1:00 pm. You should have received an adjusted schedule from your child's teacher. Here is the link to the S'More letter sent out last week with all of the information.


This week's King Connections includes:

* Roary's PAWSitive News

* Distribution for Kindergarten through Third Grade

* Thanksgiving Meal Assistance

* Grab and Go Food Distribution

* PTO Popcorn Fundraiser

* Book Fair!

* Accessing ebooks Through Clever

* Important ESL Writing Assessment Information

* November's Character Education Theme: Gratitude


Best,

Allison

Introducing "Roary's PAWSitive News". King's PBIS team and King staff members are excited to share some good news with you! Take a look to see some positive highlights from the past week.

KINDERGARTEN, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade DISTRIBUTION- Friday, NOVEMBER 20TH

On Friday, November 20th, we will be distributing additional important learning materials to Kindergarten through 3rd grade. These learning bags will have some essential instructional materials that teachers will ask students to access during lessons, such as specific content graphic organizers, manipulatives, books, journals, etc., so we ask that you do your best to come by at one of the 2 windows of time to pick up the individualized bags.


Additionally, if you wish to return any library books, we will be able to collect those as well.


We will be distributing items at the rear of the building at Door 18 near the playground.


We will offer two windows of time in order to accommodate your busy schedules to the best of our ability.

A Message from Ms. Sullivan about ebooks

Dear Families,

For the past two weeks, I have been showing King students how to access eBooks through my teacher Clever page. These resources are important additions to eBooks being offered to them through their classroom teachers. It is my goal that all King students have many reading choices, even though they are not currently using our King library collection.


**The most important step that parents and guardians can take is to make sure their children have a Framingham Public Library card. This can be done through the online application at: https://library.minlib.net/selfreg. Parent or guardian email may be used for the registration. Once you receive the FPL card number, please print or write it down for your student to register for Hoopla (slide #4). I will assist any students who have not completed eBook signup during Library class.**

Students who already have an FPL card may use it to set up their Hoopla access, or have the card available in their work space if they will need help setting up eBook access during Library class.

Thank you for your help in setting up additional eBook access for your child.


Please email me at: msullivan48@framingham.k12.ma.us if you have any questions.

Maggie



Estimadas familias:

Durante las últimas dos semanas, les he estado enseñando a los estudiantes de King cómo acceder a los libros electrónicos a través de la página de mi maestro Clever. Estos recursos son suplementos importantes a los libros electrónicos que se les ofrecen a través de sus maestros de clase. Mi objetivo es que todos los estudiantes de King tengan varias opciones de lectura, aunque no estén usando actualmente nuestra colección de libros de la biblioteca King.

**El paso más importante que los padres y tutores pueden dar es asegurarse de que sus hijos tengan una tarjeta de la biblioteca pública de Framingham. Esto se puede hacer a través de la solicitud en línea en: https://library.minlib.net/selfreg. Para registrarse pueden utilizar el correo electrónico de los padres o tutores. Una vez que reciba el número de tarjeta de FPL, por favor imprima o escriba el número para que su estudiante se registre en Hoopla (diapositiva #4). Yo ayudaré a cualquier estudiante que no haya completado el registro de libros electrónicos durante la clase de la biblioteca.**

Los estudiantes que ya tienen una tarjeta FPL pueden usarla para configurar su acceso a Hoopla, o tener la tarjeta disponible en su espacio de trabajo si necesitan ayuda para configurar el acceso a los libros electrónicos durante la clase de la biblioteca.

Gracias por su ayuda en la creación de un acceso adicional a los libros electrónicos para su hijo.

Por favor, envíeme un correo electrónico a: msullivan48@framingham.k12.ma.us, si tiene alguna pregunta.

Maggie



Queridas Famílias,

Ao longo das duas últimas semanas, eu tenho mostrado aos alunos da King como acessar os eBooks (livros eletrônicos) por meio da minha página de professor no website Clever. Estes recursos são complementos importantes aos eBooks oferecidos a eles por seus professores. O meu objetivo é que todos os alunos da King tenham muitas opções de leitura, mesmo que elas não estejam nossa coleção de livros da biblioteca da King.

**O mais importante é que pais e responsáveis certifiquem-se que seus filhos tenham um cartão da biblioteca pública de Framingham. Isto pode ser feito por meio do formulário online no site: https://library.minlib.net/selfreg. O e-mail dos pais ou responsáveis pode ser utilizado para o cadastro. Quando você receber o número do seu cartão da biblioteca pública de Framingham, imprima ou anote para que seu filho possa se cadastrar para o Hoopla (slide #4). Eu ajudarei qualquer aluno que não tiver completado o cadastro do eBook durante a aula de biblioteca.**

Os alunos que já tiverem o cartão da biblioteca podem usá-lo para configurar seu acesso ao Hoopla. Caso o aluno já possua o cartão, mas precise de ajuda para configurar o acesso ao eBook durante a aula de biblioteca, ele só precisará trazer o cartão e eu o ajudarei a configurar.

Obrigado por sua ajuda para configurar o acesso ao eBook para seu filho.

Caso tenha qualquer dúvida, envie um e-mail para mim no endereço: msullivan48@framingham.k12.ma.us .
