Week of May 13, 2019

MSTEP  ELA tomorrow! (all morning)

As of May 1st, shorts are allowed to be worn. Please be sure that the shorts are an appropriate length. Our classroom runs quite chilly. Please have your child dress for the temperature not the season. Remember that our building is also air-conditioned once the temperature warms up.

Remember:
Cereal collection


Reminder: I have a severe allergy to artificial fragrances. Even though the fragrance smells nice it triggers a migraine and I lose my voice. Fabric softeners (especially Snuggle air-borne), colognes, and perfumes are the general triggers. Axe products are a problem, also.

Chaperones for Greenfield Village:
     

     Deanna Wagner

The following pages (please locate all 4) will show you what we hope to cover this week. It is not "in stone" due to changes in our day for assemblies, recess  breaks, substitute teachers as needed, etc.

Please click on the tabs to the left. This website is in lieu of student planners.

The menu list on the left should show more subjects, but for some reason doesn't list them. Click on one and look for the others, the pages seem to be sub-pages of other pages.

Textbooks, library books, Pack and Reads, workbooks, and their journal are welcome to go home every evening BUT they must be back in class everyday.

Unfinished papers must also be sent back in the next morning when they are completed in the evening. Unfinished assignments that come home are a signal to you that your child is not finishing work in class.
