Week of September 30

We had a wonderful time on our IMAX field trip last week. Students enjoyed the engaging 3D films and learned so much about the National Parks. Be sure to ask your child about this experience!

Homework: Thank you for checking in to make sure that your child is completing their homework each week. This week, the homework password is Yosemite. You can access the homework here. here. Thanks for encouraging your child to continue reading for our National Parks reading incentive. They have 3 more weeks!

PWJ: Please respond to your child in their PWJ and return it to school by Friday. Remember,  these do not have to be lengthy letters (though they can be!). Just a quick note that your child can respond to is fine!

Bible Memory: Students will need to say the books of the Old Testament to me by this week Friday. There is a link to the video that they can use to practice in the homework!

Scholastic Book Orders: Your child will come home today with a Scholastic book catalogue. Orders will be due on Tuesday, October 29. Every book that is ordered helps pay for valuable books and resources for our classroom! Click here to order online!
