The Rigsby Reader 1.5.15

Updates from Room 311

New Reading Log

I'm sending home a new reading log! Remember to initial each night after your child reads for 20 minutes.

Headphones/ Earbuds

4th Graders have access to a lot of great technology at Claxton. However- headphones are hard to keep around. For this reason (and sanitation) - I would love if each child had their own headphones or earbuds to use in class. The students can keep them in their bookbag in a ziploc/pouch- and take them out when they need them.

If you are able to donate an extra set for the class please do! If you are unable to send in headphones please let me know and I'll make sure your child has what they need. Thank you :)

Finding Mrs. Rigsby

If your child has a change in how they are going home- please send a note with your child or call the classroom and leave a message. I try to check my email often- but once I'm teaching I don't stop! Please let me know how I can help your student be successful.
