Week of August 11th

Dear Parents,
We are off to a great start of the new school year.  I have so enjoyed getting to know the students this week and am looking forward to an exciting year ahead!  Much of the week was spent learning the procedures for 4th Grade. We discussed school expectations, such as:  not talking in the hallways, respecting others, being prepared for all activities, and always giving our best effort 

Below are just a few reminders/notes:
·        Please initial your child’s Choice Card on week 1 and return the blue Friday Folder on Monday.
·        We have snack time each day.  Your child may bring a dry snack and water bottle each day if he/she desires.
·        Included in this week’s Friday folder is a letter with CRCT scores for students who took the CRCT in 3rd grade.
·        I will also be e-mailing a copy of this newsletter this week.  If you do not receive an e-mail from me, you may    e-mail me at and I will be happy to add you to our e-mail list.
