Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I will be teaching your child ELA (reading, grammar, spelling). I will try to follow the homework helpline assignments as best I can. As always, there may be some unforseeable events. Please keep in mind we need to have an open line of communication for you the student/parent to have a great year. Looking forward to a great school year!!

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 permitted to wear a Spartan tshirt or dress code top, jeans, sweatpants, or dress code bottoms.  No yoga pants, no hoodies, no flannels.  Please read the dress code on page 25 if you have a concern.

December 15th 4th grade is going to the Schuylkill County Symphony in Pottsville.  Students will be traveling by school bus, and will return for lunch.  Lunch will be later so please eat a good breakfast.

December 19th we will be heading to the high school to see the band and chorus perform.

December 21st we will have the PBIS reward.

December 22nd is an early dismissal and the NED show.

School resumes on January 2nd.  Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Mrs. Herring

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.
