Recycling STEM Initiative- Getting our students involved and designing.
Students will have STEM homework over the break.
Students have a performing arts pamphlet in their binder. Please fill out and return. We have performances throughout the year and if these forms are not returned, the students cannot attend.
Also, Picture day is Sept 5. You can pay online or there is a form in the binder.
Cooties- it’s already that time of year. Students are getting sick and sharing their cooties. Please make sure you are keeping your child at home if they have or have had a fever within a 24 hr time period. 3 of our 7 students are sneezing and complaining of earaches.
Start collecting your recycle items, our class is hosting upcoming Recycling Day at LMS. Please see our Facebook page for information. More information to come. Also please share the information with community, friends, businesses, and churches…..we want your junk for a small donation.
NOT THIS SATURDAY……MORE INFO TO COME
I am sure the children are telling you they are taking lots of “tests” and they are! At the beginning of every year, I put the students through a battery of tests/assessments to see what they have retained and where they are academically. I will be providing you a chart of all their pencil paper tasks. We will be able to go over the results at their IEP and during conference week if you wish to have a conference at that time.
Most of the data comes from the BRIGANCE Comprehensive Inventory of Basic Skills. You will be able to see their strengths and weaknesses from the subtests given.
Moby Max is also providing me with valuable data on what the students can/cannot do. Thank you for those who are making sure students are completing their 30 minutes of MM each night. I am able to see exactly when the students are logging on and all their achievements/fails.
Readworks.org is also available each night for reading skills. This site may require more help from a fluent reader in the house. You are welcome to support your child in reading all week. Stick to just one article a week.
Our Coffee Café deliveries begin next Wednesday. We are only allowed to deliver once a week this year. Mr. Bailey is brainstorming other ways for our students to gain job skills. We will be going on CBIs this year….we are so excited!!!! During that time, we will ask that parents send in money and a grocery type list for students to make purchases that you may need from the particular store we visit. CBI – community based instruction.
Any questions, feel free to ask. PLEASE send in a doctor’s note within 3 days after your child is out of school. It will be unexcused after the 3 days.
Picture day will be Sept 5. Students have a flyer in their backpacks. Mark your calendar. Order forms will be sent home 7-10 days before Picture Day.
Thank you for sending such precious children to my classroom. I love love love them so much.
