A NOTE FROM MRS. COFFMAN

We enjoy seeing your children everyday! They are so happy to be here! We appreciate your grace, support, and encouragement during these different times! We are proud to be Broncos and serve your children!


Please make sure that your child is reading 20 minutes every night. Reading is essential to gaining comprehension, understanding, and vocabulary. Please encourage your child to read and take AR tests. Broncoville store will open every nine weeks for the students to spend their points. We have some great toys that have been donated, and the students are always excited to shop. Our goal is 22 million words for the entire year! We met our goal of 21 million last year, so we are going to push harder and read more this year! Together we can meet our goal!


¡Disfrutamos viendo a sus hijos todos los días! ¡Están tan felices de estar aquí! ¡Apreciamos su gracia, apoyo y aliento durante estos diferentes momentos! ¡Estamos orgullosos de ser Broncos y de servir a sus hijos!


Por favor asegúrese de que su hijo lea 20 minutos cada noche. La lectura es esencial para adquirir comprensión, comprensión y vocabulario. Anime a su hijo a leer y tomar las pruebas de AR. La tienda Broncoville abrirá cada nueve semanas para que los estudiantes gasten sus puntos. Tenemos algunos juguetes geniales que han sido donados y los estudiantes siempre están emocionados de comprar. ¡Nuestro objetivo es 22 millones de palabras para todo el año! Cumplimos con nuestra meta de 21 millones el año pasado, ¡así que vamos a esforzarnos más y leer más este año! ¡Juntos podemos alcanzar nuestro objetivo!

In science we are completing our lesson on changes in heat. We have experimented with using different types of heat to change the state of matter an object is made of.


ELAR/Social Studies

  • SPELLING-a set spelling list will not being coming home each week. I will send a letter with examples of the pattern we are studying. This list is not to be used to copy and memorize. You can read the words with your child or find them in their books they take home. We work with the pattern all week and I will choose at random 15 words to test them over to see if they understand the pattern studied. If you have any questions please message me on class dojo!
  • Make sure your child is reading each night and filling out reading log. I will check these every Tuesday.

NURSE'S CORNER

Parents,

As we move into the season with drastic weather changes and more common flu and strep, please monitor your children for illness. If they have fever >100.0 F they CAN NOT come to school. Please don’t give them medicine to make fever or symptoms better and send them anyway. To return to school, your student must be fever free for 3 days WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medications such as Tylenol, ibuprofen, advil, etc. Please also keep an eye on your children for sore throats, coughing, or shortness of breath. We want to keep our school open and everyone as healthy as possible. If anyone has any questions please call me at the school or email me at stephanie.fleming@meadowisd.net

Also, be sure to bring updated immunization records for this new school year if you haven’t already. I will be going through student’s immunization records that we have at school to make sure everyone is caught up. If you are not caught up (or we don’t have updated records), I will be contacting you by mail &/ phone to get your children up to date on immunizations.

As Always… WASH YOUR HANDS!

Thank you!

Stephanie Fleming
