IMPORTANT REMINDERS and Week #12 Newsletter

Hello Parents,

Here is some important information, reminders, and next week's newsletter all in one! Please read carefully WITH your child so you know all that is coming up!

Binders and Homework Due Tomorrow

  • Your child did NOT forgeth his/her binder...I have them hostage ;) They are here ready for Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences and are an important part of our goal setting. They will be returned at the end of next week. Students can use other folders for the time being.
  • HOMEWORK DUE TOMORROW: All students MUST turn in the TWO activities for homework needed for conferences. The first activity is the reflection page, the second activity is the Action Plan (must be turned in through Google Classroom). If students do not have these done they will have to complete at recess. We will be using these for our conferences.

Parent Conferences

  • If you haven't filled out the Goal Setting form for your child (click link), please do so by's quick, I promise :)
  • Please arrive WITH your child promptly at your time. There will be chairs outside if you are waiting. These are 20 minute slots and many are back to back so I have to maintain a strict schedule to be respectful for all families.

Next Week: NO HOMEWORK :)

  • As celebration of their hard work finishing the unit and completing assessments, they have a week off of all homework. We will also be discussing individualized h.w. plans during conferences to make the most out of each students' needs.
  • Although we won't be doing h.w., some students didn't complete their spelling word lists in enough time to actually practice so they will be tested on their words NEXT Friday. Please don't lose the lists students! We will discuss this new individualized spelling briefly during conferences as well.
