Monthly Update

CHA, CHA, CHA, CHANGES!

Starting in November, I will be implementing a new communication tool for sending important information home. Each month, you can expect your student to bring home a monthly newsletter; this will replace the weekly one. I will also email a copy to the email address provided in Infinite Campus. If you would like an electronic copy, please be sure to update your contact information in Infinite Campus. Also, please be sure to continue to check your student's agenda each night, as they often contain important information and reminders.

SPELLING CHANGES

We have made a few changes in the way that we are doing spelling. Keeping our spelling goals in mind, we have decided that we will spend 2 weeks focusing on spelling patterns, instead of 1 week. This will provide us an opportunity to work with students at their independent spelling level, providing additional support and enrichment as needed. Because of this change, weekly spelling lists and tests will be 10 words, instead of 20. I am looking forward to the opportunity to support and challenge each student at their level!
