I hope that everyone had a relaxing 3 day weekend! I sure did!
The children have been hard at work that past few weeks learning the rituals and routines of the Reader's Workshop and the Writer's Workshop. We have been learning a lot of addition and subtraction strategies in the Math Workshop and we are just getting started with What is Science? They have a lot to show you at Open House next week.
I encourage you to bring your children with you to Open House. This is their chance to show you the classroom and the work they have done so far.
If you are interested in being a Class Mom or Dad I would love the help. The PTA will be holding a meeting shortly after Open House for the Classroom Parents. I will have a sign up sheet at Open House if you are interested.
September 13 is our next Spirit Night. It will be help at Applebees on Old St. Augustine Road..
Kids Eat Free that night and the school receives 15% of the profits from all that attend. You can do dine in or take out. All you have to do is bring the flyer that will be going home next week.
Other upcoming Spirit Nights will be Oct 3 at the Red Elephant on San Jose and Nov 3 at Chick-Fil-A on Southside at the Avenues.
September 22 there will be an Open PTA meeting followed by Zumba at 7pm. It sounds like a lot of fun.
If you haven't already joined the PTA I encouraged everyone to! The first class with 100% participation gets a pizza party! The kids would love it if we won! I will have membership forms available at Open House.
Friday is testing day. Please study the story Dragon Gets By with your child as well as the spelling and vocabulary words on the homework sheet.
