PALS patckets

Mrs. Herring and Mrs. Staudenmeier's homerooms were sent home today with PALS packets.  Miss Brobst's class will get theirs Monday.

PALS packs are to encourage parent involvement with their student.  The PALS packet is centered around a reading skill that was just covered in class.  The students should share the pack with a parent or supporter, read and discuss the short activity, and complete the assignment at the end.  This a great conversation starter for those parents that ask how the day went and the child shrugs!  In order for the student to earn credit, the packet needs to be returned, signed by both participants.

The ELA teachers are using the PALS packets to measure the participation of parents with their students academics.  This isn't too time consuming, and many students look forward to sharing with their parents what they learned in class.  

Please support your children and encourage them to complete these packets.  We are always so busy, but it is very rewarding to watch our children share what they know. (I speak from my own parenting experience, and my girls are in college!)

Looking forward to your participation!
Mrs. Herring

Our spelling test will be Thursday on list 4.  Students took a pre-test yesterday, and have had the list since last Friday.  On the flip side is list 5, so please do not throw it away.
