on 18th September 2018

CogAT Testing is over for 1st Grade, so it is back to our regular schedule.  Here’s some news and reminders to help your child’s school week run smoothly this week!

Monthly Reading Logs:  We had a GREAT time at our 1st Friday Reading Club last Friday!—8 of our 14 friends were able to participate because they read 12 or more books in the month of August!—ALL OF YOUR CHILDREN  NOW HAVE A NEW SEPTEMBER READING LOG IN THEIR FOLDER.—PLEASE READ:  “to your child”,  “with your child”, or have your child “read to you” if possible .—-PARENTS MUST READ WITH OR “HEAR” THEIR CHILD READ SO THAT THEY CAN HELP THEM WITH THE DIFFICULT WORDS  AND CORRECT THEM IF THEY MAKE READING MISTAKES.—READING AT HOME IS A VALUABLE WAY TO PRACTICE AND CAN HELP YOUR CHLD WITH THEIR “FLUENCY” –ease of reading AND CONFIDENCE.     

 

THE NEXT FRIDAY CLUB FOR SEPTEMBER WILL BE WHEN WE RETURN FROM FALL BREAK.—THAT WILL BE FRIDAY,  OCTOBER 5, 2018.  This should give every student enough time to complete their September Reading Log and read 12 or more books. 

 

 DOES YOUR CHILD GET “BORED” OVER THE SCHOOL BREAKS?  CHECK OUT OUR GREAT PUBLIC LIBRARIES IN KENNESAW, ACWORTH, & THE MAIN LIBRARY IN MARIETTA!—YOUR CHILD CAN CHECK OUT AS MANY WONDERFUL BOOKS ON THEIR LEVEL AS THEY LIKE!—NO COST INVOLVED, JUST GO TO THE LIBRARY WITH YOUR CHILD AND APPLY FOR A LIBRARY CARD!.—P.S.  Of course, you will be responsible for the replacement cost of any lost, unreturned, or damaged books. 

 

 CogAT (Cogitive Abilities Test) —Your children did a remarkable job of staying focused and giving their best efforts during our CogAT tests on Wed., Thurs., and Friday.—So many thanks for getting your children to school on time for the test, making sure they were rested, and make sure they had eaten breakfast for their “brain food”.—WE ARE ALL DONE WITH OUR TESTS NOW! 

 

UPCOMING EVENTS: 

 Friday, Sept. 14—LIBRARY DAY IS CHANGED TO FRIDAY JUST FOR THIS WEEK! 

 Monday, Sept. 24—Friday, Sept. 28—–FALL BREAK!—SCHOOL IS CLOSED ALL OF THAT WEEK! 

  Friday, Oct. 5——Our next “FRIDAY CLUB”  for September!—  GET BUSY!    THAT’S 4 WEEKS AWAY!—PLENTY OF TIME TO READ   12 OR MORE BOOKS FOR THE SEPTEMBER READING LOG!
