September 16-Conference Day; no school for the children
I am trying to schedule conferences on this day only. I will be sending you a link to sign up via email. Be looking for this communication from me today or tomorrow. Once you sign up for an available time, that time disappears from the list. I would like to meet with all my families, so please try to come. If none of the available times work for you, please email me and let me know so we can find an alternative meeting time. I could also conference over the phone if you can't come here.

This week's story is one of my favorites. There are other books similar to this one called Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Fly. The children can take an AR test on this story from our book after we have read it three times. If your child likes Diary of Spider, then try the other two books as well. We have them in the school library.
