Thank you everyone who was able to join us for the Fall Festival last night. I had a great time and loved seeing many of you and your children. The booth we had was great and the kids loved eating the donuts off the string. It was hilarious to watch. I want to thank our wonderful room mother (her husband) and all who were able to help with the booth. We even had an amazing sister helping! Without saying your names, I want to say thank you. Truly, our school is amazing in huge part because of all the wonderful parents we have. Thank you for your support and love! If you weren’t able to come last night, you were missed. and I hope we will be able to see you at the next school function.
We also have amazing students that are a great help and uplift our classroom environment. As you all know, we had a lock down at school on Thursday. The Harrisville police needed our school to be on lock down while they took care of something in the area. Our students were amazing. They listened, remained calm, and helped each other out during this time. Thank you all for caring for and raising such wonderful children!
Don’t forget that this Friday, October 11, is our field trip to Clark Planetarium. Please make sure your child is at the train station on Wall Avenue in Ogden at 8 a.m. We will take the frontrunner and enjoy a day at the planetarium of exploring the exhibits, watching an IMAX movie, and seeing a presentation on the planets at science around the sphere. We will leave the planetarium around 1 p.m. and take the frontrunner home. The train will arrive back in Ogden at 2:24 p.m. Please make sure your child is picked up at the station on Wall Ave at that time.
Thank you all who are able to come with us. If you have let me know that you will be joining us, I will have a wristband for you to ride the train for free. Please make sure that your child has a sack lunch and water bottle in a small, easy to carry bag.
I still need some permission slips from a few students. Please have them turned in by Wednesday. Here is the digital form if you need it: Informed Consent
This week is also the week we will be doing our home project presentations on our studies in history. Each child took home a information paper about the project with a date when their project is to be presented. If you do not remember which day your child is presenting, please email me.
We have Fall Break coming up on Thursday, October 17 and Friday, October 18. We will not have school those days. Make sure you plan something fun with your family!
Picture day for students is Tuesday, October 22. We will send order forms home for this shortly.
We also have our first box tops store that week, Thursday, October 24. If you have not yet down loaded the new Box Tops app, I would encourage you to do this. Box tops are going digital and all you have to do now is take a picture of your receipt with this app and it will track your box tops for you. It is so easy, no more cutting and keeping track of the tiny things. I have been using this all summer and love it.
Again, thank you all. We truly have a wonderful class. Not perfect, but wonderful. THank you for your support.
