Patriot Press

September 23-27


Some of you may be getting your Parent/Teacher Conference schedules ready to send out. Our conference day will be November 5th. Please plan to leave 11:30-12:00 open for your lunch. We will have Gio's for lunch(lasagna, alfredo and salad). Please plan to meet with as many parents as you can. I would also leave time in your schedule for phone conferences for those who can't make it in.

I love all of the great character bulletin boards! They are all amazing! I took pictures of them all and will find some unbiased judges from other schools to vote on their favorite one :0)

Please do not add any personal furniture to the extra music room. We are trying to clean it out in preparation for Winter Wonderland but extra non-school furniture keeps appearing. If you do not want it, throw it away or send an email with a picture of it to see if anyone wants it. THanks!

Hopefully you have a twitter account. Twitter is an amazing tool to use to grow professionally. If you don't have a twitter account, go create one! You won't be sorry! If you do, please follow me so I can follow you back. (@jlbuckels) If you don't follow Stephanie Hirsch or Elizabeth Bartley, follow them and see what they are doing in their classroom. If you do have twitter, post the great things happening in your classroom and tag @parrpatriots. If you have questions about twitter, see Jessica or me and we will be glad to help you. I will be sharing people to follow in the upcoming weeks.
