Students are bringing home their first "Take Home Task" tonight.  This is homework that will help with our spelling skill of recognizing short vowel sounds.  Please sign the homework sheet and return to school tomorrow.  Your child will receive 5 bonus points on the skill portion of our test tomorrow.  By reviewing the Word Preview and Buddy Check list, your child should be prepared for tomorrow's test.

Please remember to send the bottom portion of the Parent Pack sheet to school with your child.  

Also, Time For Kids money is due the end of the week.

Thanks for all your help with returning forms and notes.

Today your child is bringing home a Parent Packet.  Please read the attached note, look over the Parent Packet, and return the bottom portion of the note signed.

It is very important to check your child's Home Folder each day.  There is important information that comes home that will keep you in touch with what is going on at school.

Just a couple of reminders:
*please complete the forms that were sent home at Open House
*please send a check for $5.50 made out to Time For Kids for our classroom magazine

Today we talked about being a good friend and even signed a "Good Friend" contract.  We did a classroom scavenger hunt that helped us learn about each other.  We also made a graph using our birth dates.

Tomorrow is a regular day-8:50 to 3:30.

We had another great day!  Today we learned a little more about each other-our favorites, likes, dislikes, etc.  We also had Art and Music.  

Feel free to send water bottles with your child as long as the weather is hot.

A note was sent home today about the Time For Kids magazine we use in the classroom.  Please send a check made out to Time For Kids to school with your child.
