My apologies, but I have misinterpreted the school snack policy. Parents are asked to sign up for providing snack to the classroom once a week. The link to sign up is through the “Track it forward” site, which is the site that the schools uses to register volunteer hours, snack and car pooling and Parent Teacher Conferences. Here is the link: https://www.trackitforward.com/site/389525/events. When you go to the site, you will see a month, then a list of teachers who are advertising snack on Mondays. Click on “Mr. John’s snack sign up” and then follow the instructions. If you haven’t signed up for the site you will be prompted to do so.
What can I provide for snack? The school asks for healthy snacks to be provided, for example:
- Mini bagels with cream cheese
- Fruit (ex. apples, clementines, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, cucumber, melon – cut at home, grapes, cherry tomatoes)
- Cheese Sticks
- Veggies (e.g. carrots, broccoli, celery)
- Crackers with cheese (pre-cut)
- Granola Bars
- Fruit Leather
- Whole Grain bread with jam
Please DO NOT send popcorn, cereal, chips and salsa or ranch dressing, and colored drinks.
At the moment, snack sign up has been set up till the Christmas break. As soon as it is open after Christmas, I’ll let you know.
Likewise, for Friday 21st on Track it Forward, Ms. Alisha will be advertising for carpooling for the “Freedom’s Light” field trip. Alisha will be emailing you in the near future about this.
Last week, the students were setting up their first home project in school with the expectation of finishing this off at home. The due date is October 3rd and they have been asked to research and produce a presentation on one of the five Native American tribal regions of North America (Eastern Woodlands, Southeast, Great Plains, Southwest and Northwest Coast). Here is a breakdown of the rubric, detailing the areas they should be concentrating on (a focus on at least one of the tribes in the region will be necessary):
- Name of Native Region (6pts)
- Label each category (6pts)
- Housing (13pts)
- Transportation (13 pts)
- Food (13pts)
- Weapons/Tools/Crafts (13pts)
- Customs/Beliefs (13pts)
- New Vocabulary Word (13pts)
- Overall Neatness (10pts)
- Total (100pts)
As usual, any questions please email me.
Thank you! – John
