Week of Sept. 25th, 2017
Parent Orientation is this Thursday, Sept. 28th. We will have a meeting in the cafeteria starting at 5:15 p.m. Then you will be released to the classrooms at 5:45 p.m. with orientation ending at 6:30 p.m. We will first meet in Mrs. Brown's classroom and then parents will visit their child's homeroom for a special surprise!
Mystery Readers - I am 95% finished with Mystery Readers online sign-up. It will be every Friday. There will be two time slots for each Friday, one for Mr. Ho's homeroom, and one for mine. I am trying to make it at a convenient time for all! You will need to have a background check complete prior to entering the classroom. It is an online application and takes just a couple of minutes to complete. Also, it has to be done each year if you volunteer. It takes about a week to be approved and you will get an email confirmation. The front office will get a report each Monday of the approved volunteers for our campus. I will send the link out once it is finalized - let's hope there are no duplicate sign up dates/times.
Field Trip - Two forms are going home today in Wednesday folders. One is for chaperones/volunteers, another is the medical form that must be returned in order to attend. We are going to the Tomball Museum on Thursday, Oct. 26th (9 a.m. - 2 p.m.), which fits perfectly with what we are learning about Communities! Forms are due back Oct. 5th!
Parent Conferences - A notification through was emailed to you with a link to sign up for a time slot. We can add more slots as they fill up. Plus we can always meet throughout the year.
Box Tops - Please turn in Box Tops in an envelope, Ziploc bag, or collection sheet. This is a grade level competition! The first collection of Box Tops will occur on November 1st!
Next week is the Book Fair! A flyer is coming home today in the Wednesday folder!
Next Tuesday is Literacy Night! Hope to see you there! 5:30-7:00 p.m.
One more thing, please let me know if you have questions on the Scavenger Hunt project for Social Studies. Items are due on Oct. 9th! Please place your child's name on each piece and in a Ziploc baggie. I saw many on the floor last year without a name! I hope you enjoy your trip around your community! I personally like #4, the one where you visit a bakery or another place to get a treat! I think we all deserve one!!
Have a fabulous week!
