I can't wait to see you all on Thursday night for the Winter Memories PTA program! The students have been working so hard to get it ready for you. They will be able to come to my room at 6:45. I will not be here before that time, so please don't have them come early.
Today, parent teacher conference forms went home. The date has been set for February 7. I am not asking for a conference, unless the box was checked on the letter that your child brought home. If you feel that we need to have a conference, please fill out the form and send it back to school by Friday, January 25. I will then compile all of the requests and let you know which time will work. I will send a reminder with the date/time on it later.
The science project is being prolonged until February 1. With the way that the schedule worked out last week, we did not have any time to use the computers for research. I am planning to have the computers in the classroom on Thursday and Friday. As far as a visual goes, they can choose what they would like to use. A poster is okay. If your child would rather do a keynote that is also acceptable.
Benchmark tests are coming up in the next two weeks. These are intended to be a snapshot and give us a look at where the students are.
As the forecast is very chilly for the rest of the week, Mrs. Hand has asked that you please send your child to school with a warm coat and appropriate clothing since we will be going out to recess unless precipitation is falling from the sky.
