If possible, you may bring something to share with the entire group such as:

 

cut fruit

 

chips

 

cookies

 

napkins

 

plates

 

We are mandated by the School District to get lifeguards for this trip. Your child's teacher paid for this ahead of time. Please have your child reimburse his/her teacher $10 by this Friday, June 19th. Thank you.

Emergency Preparedness

Hi Parents,

 

Our class welcomes any snacks that you want to send in. In case of an emergency situation at our school site, having a snack for each student would be helpful. If you would like to contribute by sending a box of granola bars or crackers, it would be appreciated. 

Thank you for your help!

Your child HAS A BLUE Valencia folder to bring home on Monday. It is not due until FRIDAY. However, ALL MATH PAGES should be done and returned the next day so we can correct them in class. That way we can go over the answers and students can ask questions.

• Read for 1/2 per night from an AR book. As soon as they finish, I will let them take an AR test in class.

We are progressing on writing our CA Reports in class. I will provide them each a transparent folder for their report write up.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LIBRARY IS every FRIDAY!

We will check out 2 AR books to read during the week. This is when we will begin our required reading at home of 30 minutes per night so that we can keep up with our reading goals we have set for each month.

PLEASE HELP YOUR CHILD LEAVE THEIR LIBRARY BOOK IN THEIR BACKPACK EACH NIGHT SO THAT NO ONE FORGETS TO BRING THE LIBRARY BOOK BACK EACH WEEK ON FRIDAY.

Thanks parents.
