Subject: What a GREAT first week!
Date: August 13th 2017
Greetings Families & Friends,
I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend! We are off to a wonderful start in room 403! Last week we were busy, busy, busy reviewing classroom procedures and expectations, building relationships, and learning how to have a GROWTH MINDSET! (See attached pictures!)
News for the week of August 14th:
Thank you for checking and signing your child's planner for homework, announcements, and behavior updates. Your student should bring his/her planner home Monday through Thursday. There will be homework each day that includes a math assignment, and 30 minutes of reading.
Beginning Monday, August 14th, your student may bring a healthy snack to enjoy after specials. This year, 4th graders eat a much later lunch that begins at 12:25. I want students to be able to focus. Here are a few snack suggestions: crackers, granola/nutra-grain bar, string cheese, fresh fruit, pretzels, veggie straws, goldfish crackers, etc. We would like snacks to be as healthy as possible. Please do not send any chips or sugary treats (cookies, donuts, poptarts, candy, etc.) for snack time. Also, please send single serving snacks to ensure ants and other pesky critters stay out of our learning environment. We would greatly appreciate any donations to keep a supply of snacks in case your kiddo forgets their snack one day.
Friday, August 18th the annual Get to Know You Picnic & MEC Spirit Wear T-shirt Exchange will be held from 6:00-7:30 on the MEC playground.
Thank you to those of you that completed the "Parent Homework Letter". If you have not done so, I would appreciate it if you would write a letter to me, introducing your child. Please look for information to include to come home with your student tomorrow. I look forward to reading each and every letter!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns! I'm looking forward to another fabulous week with your 4th grader!
