After some discussion about how graded papers come home, Mr. Driscoll and I will now be sending any classwork papers home after they are graded instead of keeping them for the bi-weekly folders. This will allow you to see your child's progress in the subject. Bi-weekly folders will still be distributed every other Friday and will contain a grade report and snapshot of your child's average to that point in the marking period. Also included will be unit tests that should be kept for review.
I am excited that we have begun our investigation into the oceans. If anyone has any empty baby food jars, I would love to take them off of your hands for some science experiments that we will be doing in the next few weeks!
Our bean economy is also off to a great start and the class store should be opening soon. If you would like to donate any dollar store prizes to our class store, the students are looking forward to shopping!
