We have been working hard on our Positive Behavior plan.  Students have to earn 3 stamps from staff or faculty for following the goal of the week.  This week's is PARTICIPATION.  If a student earns 3 stamps by the end of the day on Thursday, they will be eligible for a reward Friday.  Eligible students will be given a reward ticket.  That reward ticket MUST be given to the teacher Friday during homeroom.  We are expecting students to be responsible, so they have to keep track of this.

We are still working on CDT tests in the classroom, which use the Chromebooks, we are finishing up on DIBELS testing, and we are finishing up on our fluency tests.

Students will get Unit 1 Week 2 spelling list and reading vocabulary list.  There will be a spelling pretest on Monday, with the test following on Friday.

AR goals are to met by September 28th.  We will be having the 4th grade reward on the 29th.  My 3 classes of students' AR goals is a minimum of 5 points.

Students will be enjoying a presentation and mobile field trip on Thursday Sept 28th.  The Dept of Agriculture will be bringing the Wood Mobile to our school for 4th grade to see products made from PA trees, diseases that affect trees, and many more facts about our forests.  This will be in line with products made in PA for social studies.

Halloween parade and party is coming up soon.  Students are asked to bring in $5 to help defray the cost of the party and the Valentine's Day party.  A slip will be coming home Friday.

Enjoy your week!

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.
