North Park Elementary
- Happy Fall! Typical Missouri weather has arrived! Make sure to send appropriate clothing for your child to play outside. Unless it is raining, we do go outside.
- Conferences are just around the corner! Watch for letters to sign your child up for conferences. We will send a confirmation letter for set times. We look forward to sharing your child's successes with you very soon! We strive for 100% attendance at conferences, so if the time doesn't work for you, contact your teacher to set up a new time. We will meet with each family and look forward to doing so!
- October 3rd if McTeacher Night! Teachers and administrators will be there on a rotation for 4:30-8. A percentage of the proceeds sold during that time is given back to our school. We look forward to seeing you there!
- Walk to School Day is Wed. Oct. 4th at 8:00am at the corner of Franklin Ave and St. Charles streets. If it is raining, we will not be walking that day.
Title I Helpful Hints
Research has shown that the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is READING ALOUD TO CHILDREN. Fall is a great time to snuggle together with your child and read a book to them! Here are a few great Fall books you will want to read with your child…
Autumn: An Alphabet Acrostic by Steven Schnur
Autumn Leaves by Ken Robbins
Corn is Maize by Aliki
The Little Scarecrow Boy by Margaret Wise Brown
Why Do Leaves Change Color? by Betsy Maestro
Does your child get bored with Sight Word Flash Cards? Try this activity…..Write 8 to 10 Sight Words your child can’t read quickly yet on a blank sheet of paper, spacing them out all over the page. Have students dip a bottle cap into some paint, stamp it over the Sight Word that “YOU” call out. They will love searching for the word you say, and getting to “stamp it” with paint! Your child’s teacher can supply you with Sight Words if needed. The Book It! Reading Incentive Program (sponsored by Pizza Hut) begins in October! This is an excellent program designed to inspire your child to develop a love of reading, and to strengthen reading skills by practicing at home. For more information about Book It!, contact your child’s classroom teacher.
