I hope you all have had a relaxing weekend! As most of you may know, there is NO SCHOOL tomorrow, Monday Sept. 11, and Tuesday Sept. 12. I hope all of you have prepared for anything that potentially could happen!
Here are a couple reminders for the class:
1. I am so proud of the students for working so hard on their CogAT Test! They all persevered, and were able to finish strong! We were able to enjoy some class goodies because they all were “smarties!”
2. Please make sure you mark your children’s transportation. If it is not marked, your child will be sent to ASP. This is a safety concern, as well as useful for a substitute that may need to see how your child is getting home in the future.
3. We are in need of more mystery readers! I invite parents, grandparents, friends, etc to come in and read with the class. Please see the blog for the sign up genius to be a mystery reader.
4. Progress reports went home this past week. Please make sure if you have not done so, please sign one of the copies and send it in. You can keep the 2nd copy for your records!
On a positive note, I am hoping the weather will be nice for next Sunday, October 22nd. I would like to invite all family members and children to come out to Taylor Brawner Park from 1-3pm to have a playdate for the children. I know the kids see each other enough in class, but I thought it would be fun for our families to mingle, as well as the kiddos to have a great time. Bring your families, dogs, brother & sisters; it will be fun! Please join us Sept. 17th! You never know, a special guest(s) may make an appearance 🙂
Thank you to our two previous mystery readers, Mrs. Obianwu (Ike’s mom) and Mrs. Weaver (Nadia’s Mom) for coming in and reading with the kiddos.
Have you “Backed the Jack?” Friday, Sept. 8th was our annual Back the Jack Pep Rally! The students enjoyed Campbell High School Band marching through the halls! The Back the Jack Campaign ends soon, so please make sure to make your donation! Part of the earnings go to teacher grants, and I know a couple first grade teachers who are writing some! Please support our school and our children by meeting our goal!
