Students have been super busy collecting money for the Boosterthon.  As of this morning, my homeroom had $25/lap raised.  We are very close to the $30 level as a class, which is a classroom surprise snack provided by me.  If the school raises $20,000, the principals will dress as queens and get pied in the face.  Let's keep making those donations!

Tomorrow is the Fun Run.  Students are encouraged to wear sweatpants and the field trip shirt.  If a student doesn't dress for the Fun Run, they must be in dress code school approved clothes.  NO JEANS!  The Fun Run will take place in the afternoon for 4th grade.

Monday is the PBIS reward.  If a student has earned all 4 stamps, they may dress down for the day.  Jeans, sweatpants, Spartan t-shirt, or dress code clothing.

Valentine's Day party is Friday February 9th, beginning at 2pm.  Students may bring in Valentines to share with their classmates.  If a treat is being sent in, please be sure it is store bought.  We will be provid…

Week of January 3, 2018

Happy New Year!!!

In spelling, we took a pretest today on List 8 Scene Two.  3 times each is due tomorrow (#1-20). Test is on Friday.

In reading, we will be staring Scene Two.  We will be discussing how to draw conclusions.  Students will write vocabulary tomorrow and should study nightly.  On the Family Times worksheet, students are to read the History Alive part and write down 3 differences in a family members life in their  hometown or where they are currently living.

In grammar, we will be reviewing irregular plural nouns.  We did a spelling lesson on irregular plural nouns before Christmas break. 

PBIS for the month of January will be 2-2 week periods.  At the end of both 2 week periods, a free dress down will be awarded if the student earns their 4 stamps.

Have a great day

December 7, 2017...REVISION

This is a super crazy month, so please continue to check the PTO Facebook page, NS webpage, and your child's assignment book.

Tomorrow we will have a pretest in spelling on list 7 Coyote School News.  As I told the kids, the words are difficult and there isn't an easy way to remember irregular plural nouns.  Test will be on Thursday.  Homework will be assigned on Monday.

Reading test tomorrow on What Jo Did.  This was a short story on cause and effect.  Please review cause and effect with your child.  What happened first to make something else happen?  Tuesday we will start Coyote School News in reading with the test next Monday the 18th.  A writing assignment will be coming home on Wednesday the 13th due back on the 15th.  It corresponds with Coyote School News and will be a grade.

Grammar will start on Monday and it is plural nouns, with a test to be announced.  This is very similar to our last spelling list.

December 8th & 15th are paid dress down days.  Students are perm…

Tuesday November 21

Students have spelling homework 3x each due tomorrow by 9am.  I announced in class today who has homework.  The list was given out yesterday, List 6 What Jo Did.  If the student lost the list, it can be found in their ELA workbook or on-line...Google What Jo Did spelling list.  The test is Friday December 1.

Tomorrow is a paid dress down $1.  Students are encouraged to donate to the NS Cares fund which helps students in need.

Tomorrow is also PBIS reward.  Students are allowed to bring in a board game or an electronic device.  No way is the school, bus company, vans, or teachers responsible for the devices.

Dismissal tomorrow at 12.  See everyone again on Tuesday November 28.
Happy Thanksgiving,
