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!

This week is the start of Red Ribbon Week, and it will run through Tuesday, October 31.

Students may show their school spirit on Wednesday by dressing up in NS clothes.  Thursday they may wear their favorite team shirt/jersey.  Friday they may wear jeans before changing into their Halloween costume.  Please remember to follow dress code, but still have fun.

Friday the parade will start at 2pm and will find its way to the high school stadium.  Classroom parties will follow.  4th grade has collected $5/student to help defray the cost of snacks.  If you haven't sent yours in, please do so.  Students may also bring in candy/snacks, but remember it must be store bought.

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.
