The Fun Run is quickly approaching this Thursday.  There is still time to register if you haven't done so already.  Donations can be done online or if it is a cash donation, that can be sent in.  Students are encouraged to wear their black and green pto shirt on Thursday and sweatpants so the run is easier and more enjoyable.  If the student can't find the black and green shirt, any North Schuylkill shirt will do.

Students in period 1 & 2 were to have a pretest and spelling list this week.  I am going to move that to next Monday, January 28th. 

Periods 1 & 2 were to have a reading test on Tuesday.  Due to no school on Monday and a 2 hour delay on Tuesday, the reading test will be moved to Wednesday.  Please continue to study the vocabulary, fact and opinion and compound words.

Please dress responsibly.  Students can wear a sweater, cardigan, 1/4 zip sweatshirt.  Please be sure students are wearing jackets, hats, gloves, etc.  Always be prepared for outdoor drills, bus …

My class has reached the 2nd classroom incentive.  Students in my homeroom will receive a sweet treat and an additional 15 minutes of recess.  The next incentive is a mystery reader.
If more students register online and pledge, we will climb to the top faster.  We are in 1st place in 4th grade!!!
Students are doing a great job!



Parents,
Our North Schuylkill Fun Run kicked off today, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run program (which will last about two weeks), making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more fun. Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun, fitness event while helping our school raise much-needed funds.
