Welcome Back!!! I can't believe we are mid-way through September! Mrs. Goldberg and I enjoyed meeting all of you at Back To School Night. We had a terrific turn out and are looking forward to a fabulous school year with your children. Many of you completed and returned any forms that we needed that night. We will send home an updated contact list for you to review. Please indicate any changes on the list and return it to us. If no changes are necessary, then we will let you know that is the final list.
Many thanks to those of you who sent in extra Expo markers. We will let you know as supplies need replenishing throughout the school year. Your childeren are doing a wonderful job of learning our classroom routines and procudures. We plan on starting guided reading groups in October. Mr. Pollock stated in his weekly newsletter that the on-line conference schedule is up and ready for you schedule a time to meet with us to discuss your child's academic and social progress.
I'm in the process of finalizing our class volunteer/helper list. I will contact the moms that have expressed interest in helping with class parties and events. We have used Sign Up Genius in the past to request donations. Our first class party will be Halloween. I will send out information within the next few weeks.
We will be celebrating Johnny Appleseed day on Wednesday, September 26th. We will be making homemade applesauce and sampling apple cider and apple juice. The students enjoy this theme centered day. Please have your child wear red that day.
