If you are participating in the Farmstead Food Plate Fun Pass, please remember to turn the completed paperwork in to me by Thursday, September 29th.  I already have 10 completed food plates ready to turn in!

 

Reminder:  2nd Grade will be going on a field trip to Linder Farms on October 5th.  If you have not received the information/permission slip that was sent home, please let me know and I will send another information/permission slip home with your child.

 

Please check your child’s Home Folder tomorrow for the tests he/she took last Thursday.

 

Reading Calendar

 

Please have your child read for 20 minutes Monday through Thursday (4 nights) and record their minutes on his/her monthly Reading Calendar.  Please put this calendar in a safe place so it won’t get lost over the course of the month.  Your child will need to return this completed reading log on the 1st day of the following month.   If your child returns this completed Reading Calendar on the due date, your child will receive $5.00 of classroom money.  If your child brings it a day or more late, your child will only receive $1.00 of classroom money.  This Reading Calendar IS for a grade on your child’s report card.

 

 

OCTOBER BOOK:

 

The School-wide book for October will be The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I will send more information at a later date concerning the classroom celebrations focusing on this book.  I wanted to give parents plenty of time to plan, because all costumes must tie to this book.

 

Home Folder

Your child’s Home Folder needs to be taken home every evening and returned every school day. Please help your child become responsible for this. He/She will receive class money for bringing it every day and pay $1.00 to borrow a Home Folder for that day. 

Snack

Your child will be given the opportunity to eat a snack around 1:50 each day.  If your child would like a snack, please send something extra each day for him/her to eat.  This snack should be something quick and easy to eat as your child will be eating while working.  Please don’t send in anything that requires the use of a refrigerator or microwave. 

Water Bottles

 If your child doesn’t already have a water bottle at school, would you please send one to school with him/her soon?  The students get pretty thirsty on these hot days.  I let the kids have their water bottles on their tables so they can drink when they want.  If they do not have a water bottle, I have little 3 oz. cups they can use, but they only get 1 per day.  I don’t like to have the cups on the tables because they usually get knocked over and that ruins the papers of everyone sitting near them.  Students using cups also have to get out of their seats frequently to fill their cups, which takes away from instruction time. They can bring their water bottles on Mondays and take them home on Fridays for a good washing!
