We now have Razkids available to all students. Just go to our Language Arts page and click on Razkids.
Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? Teasley’s Physical Education department is proud to partner with the NFL and their PLAY60 program to bring you BACK TO FOOTBALL Friday on September 7th. Back to Football Friday is a school-wide event that encourages students to get active and excited about the upcoming football season. Students are encouraged to wear their favorite NFL football gear. During their specials time the students will participate in football related stations testing their throwing, catching, kicking, punting, and speed/agility.
Like any school-wide event, WE NEED YOUR HELP. To volunteer please use this link http://signup.com/go/WscGUKW.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact Coach Homansky at firstname.lastname@example.org or Coach Sonny at email@example.com.
Message from the Attendance Committee
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! As we jump into a new school year, the Teasley Attendance Team wants to reward those students who come to school on time every day. Students who have perfect attendance at the end of the first 9 weeks, ending on Wednesday, October 10th, will receive a free dress down day, a surprise treat, and 1 entry into the end of the year drawing for a BRAND NEW BIKE! Furthermore, those students who have perfect attendance for the entire school year will have the opportunity to participate in a end of year celebration during the last week of school as well as FOUR entries into the drawing for the bike! Thank you so much for your support with getting your student to school on time every day.
FROZEN FRIDAYS are coming! Support our 5th graders by purchasing a FROZEN FRIDAY pass. With a FROZEN FRIDAY pass, your child will receive a real fruit, no sugar added frozen treat every Friday of the school year. You can purchase an annual pass for $30 or a quarterly pass for $10. Buying an annual pass saves you $10! See the order form coming home Monday for additional details.
Picture day is tomorrow, August 20. Our picture time is 8:26 so please make sure your child is here at school on time. The children should wear their standard school attire.
Standard School Attire
Please review the standard school attire requirements on our blog and on the Teasley website. Thanks!
Small Group Reading and Math
We are going to begin our small group reading and math groups this week. Which means that while I’m working with small groups the other children will be working with technology and independent work. While we have been practicing our routines and procedures since day one, some children may find it challenging to work independently without my guidance. I differentiate independent work according to each student’s needs and ask that the children work quietly and only interrupt my small groups if it is an emergency. You may notice that your child’s behavior chart may go below Ready to Learn this week if they are having challenges with interrupting during my small group time. Please talk with your child about the importance of quiet voices during this time and how it will help other children and themselves with learning.
What We Are Learning
Check out the What We Are Learning page above to find out this week’s activities
We are still in need of a room parent. If you are interested in this position, please let me know ASAP. There will be a room parent orientation on Tuesday, August 21 at 8:00 am.
Thank you for having such remarkable children!
We’ve been having a great time getting to know each other this past week. We have been working hard at practicing our routines and procedures and becoming quite the learning community. We have even been learning how to say hello in the different languages represented in our classroom. We can now say hello in Russian, Hindi, Spanish and English. We are on our way to becoming global thinkers. I have added a new page to the blog called “What We’re Learning”. This will keep you updated on what we are learning each week.
Reminder: We are still missing a few clinic cards and family information guides so please turn those in soon.
