5th grade is in charge of selling a product next week for Kidz Expo. We are selling “Pickles on a Stick”. Mrs. Wadsworth and I plan on going to Sam’s Club and getting big jars of pickles there, put them on a skewer or popsicle stick, and selling them for $1.00. I did this with one of my 2nd grade classes, and it was a very successful fundraiser. If you are able to donate pickles or money for us to go buy pickles, we would appreciate it. If you are able to donate, please indicate if you would like to be paid back (this is where we would talk to the students about parents “loaning” us the money and/or materials needed). We start on this upcoming Monday and end on Friday. We’re excited to see how much money we can raise!
One more thing- the school recently switched our email system over. If I have not responded to an email you sent, I probably didn’t receive it. Some teachers are even getting email come through from the beginning of the year!
Remember that there is no school Thursday and Friday because of Fall Break, and Monday teachers have a work day without students. Enjoy your 5-day weekend! I will be locking grades this week for this last term. If you child is missing any work, please have them turn it in ASAP!
The week we get back (August 24th -27th) is Red Ribbon Week. Listed below is the schedule for that week:
Tuesday – “Use your head, wear red.” Students may wear red that day (must have a collar).
Wednesday – “Turn your back on drugs.” Students may wear just their shirt backwards (must have a collar).
Thursday – “Stay in the game.” Wear a jersey, team shirt, or college gear (no collar if wearing jersey, team shirt, college gear).
Friday – “Shade out drugs.” Wear sunglasses & dark clothes (since Friday is free dress day, students do not need to wear a collar).
Thanks for all you do!
Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Wednesday, September 27th and Thursday, September 28th. Please use the following link to sign-up for a time to meet: http://signup.com/go/BEKqAHC
It is important we keep the conferences to 15 minutes so parents with other children are able to keep their appointments with other teachers. If you need more than the 15 minutes allotted for each conference, please contact me and we can set up another time to meet.
