Locke's Letter

What's Happening In Room 313?

Parent To Do List:

*Update your emergency early dismissal plans with Mrs. Locke via phone or email if needed!

*Pay your fun run pledges!

Help Needed!

This is your opportunity to get involved!

I am in need of volunteers to do some cutting and pasting for me. We are setting up a new library system in our classroom and it has lots of cutting and gluing to set it up. If you are interested in helping, please contact Mrs. Locke.

Also, if you are available to be a reading buddy for a student and volunteer once or twice a week at the same time (between 8-10am) please contact me as I would love to get a tutoring program up and running!

Technology Needed!

Parents, I have a project posted at Donors Choose ( http://goo.gl/YUcrPy ) and would love your support! I am in need of iPod's for students in class. We can use them as listening stations during Daily 5, reward programs or behavior management tools.

If you can't donate, please consider passing along our project to co-workers, grandparents or friends!

Also, if you have an old unused iPod we would love to have it!

Thank you for your continued support!
