Mr. Beauchamp's Class News
Friday, April 29, 2016
The end is fast approaching! We are moving though our lessons with ease and grades have started to be entered into PowerSchool. Let me know if you have issues or concerns with what you see in PowerSchool.
This week we learned the rest of the pink rainbow words. We have learned all the sight words for the school year! Keep practicing those words at home if your child has not made the pink wall. We will be reviewing the words multiple times a week.
We have an issue with students bringing toys to school. Toys need to be left at home. The toy watches need to be left at home too. They are becoming a distraction and students are playing with them instead of working or during instruction. We have two clocks in our classroom so a watch isn't necessary especially if it will be a distraction in the classroom.
Thursday, May 12th will be the last day of homework and homework books. If you would like a summer packet (with a few things to work on) please let me know. I will be happy to make you a copy! I will be sending a couple leveled readers home with your child to keep them reading though the summer. I will include a list of reading levels with DRA levels for you to find books over the summer.
The East Book Fair is coming up May 2nd - May 12th. More information below!
On Friday, May 13th we will be taking another field trip. We will be going to Bennett Springs. This trip will need parent volunteers. Permission slips were sent home on Wednesday. Please have them returned by Monday, May 2nd. Thank you to those parents who have already returned their child's form!
The Waynesville School District has made changes to our field trip policies. You must send a note to school with your child before the field trip if you plan to have your child check out on the trip. If the East office does not have a note and you wish to check your child out on the field trip, you will not be allowed to take your child. This is for your child's safety. We want to make sure the office is able to make sure the person picking up your child is someone who has rights to check them out from school.
If you do plan to attend the field trip and do not have a volunteer badge, you need to go to WCC to have your picture taken and receive your approved ID badge. You must wear your badge on the trip. If you have not applied to be a volunteer and would like to attend the trip, please let me know so I can send a volunteer form home with your child.
Have a great weekend!
Does your child plan on having a summer birthday celebration? If you send your invitations to school the last week of school, I will be sure to make sure your child invitations are handed out. Remember, per District policies, you must have an invitations for every student in the class.
Scholastic Book Fair
- Book Fair opens on Monday, May 2nd.
- Students will be allowed to go to the Book Fair on Wednesday during our specials time.
- If a student brings money on a day other then Wednesday, they will go at a time that is convenient with our class schedule. Times are limited for the Library and our schedule will need to go with the Library's schedule.
- If your child sends money, I will keep the money in a safe spot until they are able to go that day. Like stated above, I will send them at a time that the Library has free and fits with our class schedule.
- Students must have at least $0.54 before they can go shopping. The cheapest item is $0.54. Any amount below will not be enough to make a purchase.
- Parents will be contacted if their child has amounts greater than $50.00. Please don't send your child with that much money.
- Yes, the book fair does charge tax.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
