"There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch."

Robert Brault


These kids are amazing. We are starting to get into a routine of school. Some things are still forgotten. Water Bottles are still needed. If it is easier for your child, he/she can leave it for the week and take it home on the weekends. 


The Halloween party will be the morning of Friday, October 29th. Please have your child dress that morning in his/her costume. They will need to have a change of clothes for later. Please refer to the schools newsletter regarding any rules we have for Halloween.

Thanks to Mrs. Ackerman and Mrs. Mitchell for volunteering to be our room moms. They will be needing help from you by sending in treats for the party. Please look for information from them for your donations. 

We will be doing a fun activity for Language Arts at the beginning of November. We have been working on “Dead Words”. These are words that are nondescript and can no longer be used in writing. We will be having a funeral for those words. I am asking the kids to do the following for the funeral: 

Wear black

Bring an umbrella

Bring a pair of sunglasses

I will let you know when the exact date is for this event. 

Parent-Teacher Conferences

We are using Signup.com again this year for conferences. The window to sign up for the conference will launch at 4:00 PM on October 25th.

Homework Folder

Please look in your child's homework folder daily to see if he/she has his/her homework completed and ready to turn in the next day. This is a routine that needs to become a habit so that they will be successful with study habits for the future.
