Hope you are enjoying this Fall weather and your children! I'll make this newsletter short so you can return to your break!
Thank you: To Mr. Eick and the CapCue Board for organizing and sponsoring such a great, "techeducational" day for us teachers on Saturday! I am excited to share what I've learned with my students!
A few things:
*Field Trip to Cinderella on 11/9--info and permission slips went out in blue folders. Our 5 chaperones will be: Nathan's mom, Alena's mom, Aiden's mom, Audrey's dad, and Scarlett's mom. Chaperones please make sure you are WCS fingerprinted and you have paid for your ticket online. Click here for more info.
*Consent form for Mrs. Martin's Masters project--also in blue folders you will find a consent form from Mrs. Martin. We will be starting our Endangered Animal/Advocacy unit upon return from the break and with consent, she will be using data from our students for her Masters project. If you would like to have your child participate, please sign and return this form. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
*Guest teacher on Monday 10/10 and Tuesday 10/11--I will have a substitute teacher on the Monday and Tuesday after Fall Break. I will return to the classroom on Wednesday. I've told the students already, but in case they've forgotten, please remind them. I know they will be respectful, responsible, and helpful and they will enjoy Mrs. Lamb.
*Homework over the break--I hope students are just resting, re-charging, and relationship-building! If students would like to keep their brains busy, they may work from our resource page. Reading would be great, too.
Speaking of reading...
*Scholastic Reading Club orders are due by 10/30/16. You can place your orders online at scholastic.com/readingclub using my class activation code: QGHGX
*I will be submitting your Highlights children magazine subscription requests tomorrow. This is who I have: Victor, Nathan, Joaquin, Serenity, Alena, Emmeline, Emma, Amish, Audrey, and Phoenix. If you would like me to include your student, email me by 9:00 pm tonight.
2nd Grade Teacher's Son's Quote of the Week:
"Why be a hobbit, when you can be an elf?" followed up with "Well, it's great to be a hobbit sometimes, too."
So true! Have a great week!
