Dear Parents,
Tonight is Leeds Farm from 6:00-8:30. Admission is $10 per person and Chick-Fil-A will be available for dinner. Bring the whole family out for a fun evening!
Today a packet will come home for the Deer Run Run which will be Friday October 6 during the school day. This is one of PTO's biggest fundraisers. Please look for the packet in your child's mail.
Our field trip to COSI is Wednesday October 4. Please return your child's permission slip by Tuesday September 26. On the day of the trip, your child will need a packed lunch and drink in disposable containers. A special thank you to our PTO for sponsoring this entry event to our Tunnel Through Time PBL.
Next week we will have our first word study assessment. We will take a grade on the sentence dictations that we do each morning. The children will be assessed on the words we have introduced so far and kindergarten words. The words so far are: play, and, like, had, went, can, class, lead, fall, plan, get, that, eat, want, saw, you, have, of, are, with, made, thing, was, apple, tree, make.
We will continue with narrative writing in writing workshop. In reading, we will be learning about mental images. In math, we will be finding unknown addends to understand subtraction. In social studies, we will learn about families. We will meet with our fifth grade buddies on Friday.
