Dictionaries: Today, all third grade students received a dictionary from the Smyrna Rotary! It was a neat experience. Students can use the dictionaries at school and at home. We have some dictionaries in the classroom if students want to leave them at home.

October Math Choice Boards:¬†I am so proud of the work students returned today with their math choice boards! I hope this was a fun activity to practice multiplication skills! Look out for a November Choice Board for division! ūüôā

Multiplication Facts:¬†Beginning next week, we will begin our journey of mastering multiplication facts! We are focusing on the 2’s and 3’s times tables next week. After giving a pretest of ALL the multiplication times tables, we will send home an informational letter containing their pretest score. If students have already mastered their 2’s and 3’s, they can go onto other times tables to practice and master.

Biography Extension: If students finish their biographies early, they have the opportunity to work on one of many extension projects! Mrs. McLaughlin has planned a Hanger Biography project! We would greatly appreciate donations for supplies for the hanger projects! ūüôā

Class Wish List: Biography Hanger supplies, Ticonderoga #2 pencils, colored copy paper, pencil erasers

Boo Hop!

Here is an announcement from Mrs. Mungin regarding tomorrow’s Boo Hop!

Hello Parents,

Thanks for allowing your child to attend the Boo Hop.  It will be an afternoon of fun, food and music. Here is the dismissal plan you should follow if your child plans to attend.  Please send your teacher a change of transportation by noon Friday October 30th,  so we will know how to dismiss your child from school.

All K-2 students attending the Boo Hop will  stay in their classrooms and will be dismissed with their teacher to Carnegie Hall (the music room) at the end of the school day. Mrs. Mungin will at that time take your child to the Boo Hop.  Students who are enrolled in ASP will go to ASP like normal and their ASP teacher will escort them to the Boo Hop.  When the Boo Hop is over, ASP kids will return to ASP.  All others will need to be picked up at 4:00.  Anyone left at 4:15 will be enrolled in ASP and you must pick them up from the Gym.

All 3rd-5th car riders, second load bus riders and regular load bus riders will follow their daily dismissal plan. There will be no changes for you.  If your child is in ASP they will go to ASP and their ASP teacher will dismiss them to the Boo Hop.  If your child is a car rider or bus rider and wish to come back to the Boo Hop, you, the parent, will need to provide transportation for them to come back to the school.

When students return to Teasley they should only come to the back of the school (by the café) for entrance. This is also for K-2 picking up their child from the Boo Hop.

The Boo Hop ends PROMPTLY at 6:00 PM (for 3rd-5th grades ONLY).  Thanks in advance for allowing your child attend this event and supporting the Teasley Treble Tones and the Teasley Elementary School Can Food Drive.

Happy Halloween!!
