Dear Parents,

Students are bringing home their original art today. The art is due by Monday October 26th. Students turn in their art right in the entrance of the school. Checks are the only acceptable payment for original art. Art will be returned with items on December 2nd. These items would make great holiday gifts.

Here is some additional information on original art works:

What is Original Works? For 26 years, this company has been coordinating with schools to turn children’s art into keepsakes. You can choose from one or more of the following: key chains, magnets, mirrors, coasters, notebooks, tiles, mugs, tote bags, water bottles, cell phone covers, night lights, T-shirts, quilt block, mouse pads, note cards, pillowcases, journals, pot holders, matted prints, and decorative flags.

Who benefits from this fundraiser? When you order, the profit goes directly to your child’s classroom!

What should I do if my child completed more than one piece of art? Each piece of art needs its own order form. If you want to order multiple pieces of art, please get additional order forms from Rachael Bush.

What should my child do with their completed packets? Return the art, order form, and check payable to MMA to the school. There will be a table at the entrance ready for your orders.  PLEASE do NOT give money and order forms to teachers.

We ONLY accept checks! Please make them out to MMA and include them with your completed order form.

When are order forms due? By October 26th. Look for the Original Works table in the school’s entrance!

When will orders arrive? Original Works art keepsake(s) will be sent home on December 2nd.

What if my child didn’t finish their art at school? Your child can complete, add to, or even replace their art at home. Use 8½ x 11″ plain paper and color or paint. Please no glitter, pipe cleaners, googley eyes, or anything else that makes the art 3-D.

What if parents don’t want to order? You keep your child’s art!

If you have additional questions, please contact rachael.bush@gmail.com

Thanks,

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,

Attached is a new spelling list for Level 1’s that are beginning readers.  The spelling exercises will reinforce their efforts to memorize common sight words. As their reading skills progress they will transition to  spelling words based on phonetics. We will inform you in advance when we make changes.

Please practice the spelling of these words with your child several times during the week.  Spelling tests will held on Thursdays.

We hope that you are continuing to practice sight word recognition with your child regularly.  When your child has mastered the level they were given at the beginning of the year, please return the sight word key ring for the next level.

Thanks,

Miss Elise and Miss Carolyn

Dear Parents,

For anyone who is interested:

Here is a WeJoinIn link for parents who are wanting to be fingerprinted during conferences to be certified drivers or substitutes.

http://www.wejoinin.com/sheets/zavrk

We could always use more certified drivers for field trips, and substitutes, to take the assistants place when teachers are out sick. Thanks for the support.

Thanks,

Miss Elise
