October is off to a great start. Our reading groups are in full swing, we have our spelling routines in place and we just finished unit 2 in math. There is a lot of new learning going on and we are working on independence, persistence and organization.
We have our first field trip coming up. To enhance our study of plants, animals and the earth, we are going on a field trip to the Lowell Family Farm on October 11th. The cost of the trip is $8.00. Please send in the fee by October 11th. Also, please return the attached permission slip with your check. If you wish to order a sack lunch please return the attached order form. Please use only disposable lunch sacks as lunch boxes get lost and are difficult to carry. Dress for the weather! We are hoping for sunny weather but we will go either way. It should be a very fun day!
Fall conferences are the week of October 14th. Please look for your time in your Friday folder. Sign and return the form saying that the time also works for you. I have tried to honor the times you signed up for at BTSN. Thank you for being on time and bringing questions that you may have.
Our run for funds due date is this Friday the 4th. A BIG thank you to all that participated. The funds go directly to the PTO that gives such support to our school.
I am starting volunteers this week. If I didn’t contact you and you would like to volunteer please let me know. I am sure we can work something out.
The new orange math packet came home Monday. You should be finished with the blue one and the first orange sheet was due today. Finish the blue as you can and send them in.
Our Halloween party will be on the 31st. The parade starts in the afternoon. Please look for more details to come. Costumes should not be too scary and no weapons. If you would like to help with the party please contact me and I will get you in touch with our room mom.
Just a reminder that with this crazy weather coats and jackets often get left behind. Please label them and we can be sure if found it gets returned to the right person.
I look forward to meeting with you at conferences
