Due to the snow, some things have been pushed back. Homeroom conferences have been rescheduled to March 12, 2015. Therefore, the nList for February 16th conferences has been taken down. The window to sign up for the new date begins on March 2nd and ends on March 5th. We are both aware of your child’s progress and what courses have been recommended for your child for next year. However, if you would still like to meet face-to-face, please sign up via nList. If emailing or a phone call is easier, I am always available!
The math test that was scheduled for last Friday will now be taken on Thursday. This will cover Elapsed Time, Prime, Composite, Even and Odd Numbers, and Coordinate Planes. It has been a while since the lessons on elapsed time, and prime and composite numbers, so your child will have homework the next two nights which will provide them with some practice with these skills. In class we continue to work on finding and graphing points on a coordinate plane.
Class picture day is tomorrow. We will have our pictures made at 10:25. Due to the picture schedule, our class will switch with Mrs. Bernheart first thing in the morning until 10:15. If you would like for your child to get a class picture, they need to be paid for in advance. The cost is nine dollars and you can send in the payment in the envelope that came home yesterday, or by going to this website and following the online instructions. You will need to enter the code 4969000 when prompted. Please send me a note letting me know you purchased the picture tomorrow morning so that I can add your child's name to my list of people who are receiving a picture.
Today your child will bring home a notice from HCPS school health services. As a rising 6th grader, your child will need a Tdap booster before the next school year begins. The Henrico County Health Department will conduct school-site Tdap only immunizations at SPES. If you would like for your child to recieve the shot at school, please fill out the form and return to school no later than March 10. Our Tdap date is March 17. You may also choose to get this booster at your child's pediatrician, if you would rather.
