It is the students responsibly to complete the project, and bring it to school. Please help and remind them not to wait until the last minute. They have 3 weeks to complete this project. I will be posting the sign-up sheet soon. These projects are mandatory.

Blue Folders: 

Please stay consistent with bringing back the blue folders every Friday. Please check your student’s backpack on Monday, and complete the assignments every night. This is making a huge difference in your child’s reading. Please let me know if these are not getting home. I hand them to each child Monday afternoon. Keep in mind these are daily assignments, the repetition of reading every night, helps with their fluency, in addition to word recognition.

Dear Parents,

It is incredibly important that you send an email, if you are planning to take your child tomorrow. I had several students mention that they are were being taken by their parent. Until I receive email confirmation, each child will be in an assigned group. We need to make sure that every child is accounted for well before we leave. The last chance to email me will be by 8:00 am, tomorrow morning.

Thanks,

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,

We are in urgent need for drivers for the field trip on Thursday, to the Natural History Museum. If we are not able to find drivers, we will do a first to sign up basis. Which means the students who don’t have rides, will have to stay behind. If there are only a couple of drivers, we will have to cancel our field trip. We need your help and support, to get these students there. Please email Jen at   noyesbush@msn.com in order to drive students.

Thanks,

Miss Elise
