Mrs. G's Classroom News
February 5, 2016
Our Valentine's Party will be Friday, February 12th at 1:30pm-2:55pm. Then the students will be off to special for the last hour of the day. Parents are welcome to attend if you wish. It will be a very low key event with fun stations occurring around the room. Valentine reading, making crafts, playing games and enjoying a treat will be included. A sign up genius will be coming out soon for items to donate and positions to choose to help out. Filling out and distributing valentine cards is not required, but if your child would like to do them please make sure they include everyone in the class. There is a class list in your child's Friday folder today. We are decorating already purchased, paper bags on Monday to keep our Valentine's in. If your child would like to bring stickers, printed out clip-art or other items to decorate their bag that would be great. You can expect for us to decorate our bags on Monday. Students can start bringing their valentines to pass out on Tuesday the 9th.
Thank you to all who handed in your field trip slip and donation money. If you haven't had the chance yet, please send it in sometime this week. We leave February 16th at 9:05am. Any student who does not have a signed permission slip will have to stay here at Hornung! In today's Friday folder you will find a student field trip technology policy form to fill out. Our class will be taking 10 ipads with us on our magnificent journey to Lansing. I thought it would be fun to conduct mini-news casts about certain sections of the museum that reinforce our history lessons in our third grade curriculum. In small groups students will make short, news-reporter videos for an assigned section of the museum. We will share our reports online which will give you the perfect insight to see what your child experienced and learned. They will only have the ipad in their possession for a short period of time - I will have them for the rest of the day. Please look over this policy and return it next week. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
