A few things…

January 8th, 2018 by Veronica Reeve No comments »

Remember!  No school Friday, January 12th or Monday, January 15th.

We are planning a field trip to the planetarium in SLC next month, February 8th from 9:00 – around 1:00.  Be looking for permission slips to be sent home next week.  We will need 5 parent volunteers.  First priority goes to parents who weren’t able to go on our aquarium field trip. If you are able to come help out please email me vreeve@hmcharterschool.org and let me know.

DIBELS testing starts January 17th.  Please make sure your student gets plenty of sleep and a good breakfast/lunch that week.  To prepare for this test at home, read with your child and have them do a one minute retell of what they’ve read.  As many facts as they can,  in the order that the events happened, for one minute without stopping.   Have them follow each word with their finger. This helps them so they don’t skip words or lose their place while they read.  Practicing at home can really help them do well and feel prepared for the test.

Some of our students are not bringing their planners to school.  Please remember that they need to be bringing those every day.

Also, some students have work piling up in their “Take Home” folder.  Please clean that out with your child and discuss with them the things they are learning at school.

Aquarium Comes To HighMark

October 25th, 2017 by Veronica Reeve No comments »

We loved going on our field trip to the aquarium last month.  Yesterday we were lucky enough to have them come to us!  They came and taught us all about rainforests around the world.  They even brought some friends with them.

Halloween Party

October 23rd, 2017 by Veronica Reeve No comments »

HighMark will be celebrating Halloween on October 31st.  Students need to wear their costumes to school.  No masks or weapons of any kind are permitted.  Face paint is ok, but usually doesn’t last, and starts bothering them when they wear it all day.  We will have our costume parade first thing in the morning.  Parents and families are welcome to attend and see the school parade in the Commons area.  Immediately following the parade we will have our classroom Halloween party.  It will last approximately one hour.  Thank you for those who have signed up to help or come volunteer – all of our spots have been filled!  After the party the students will need to have clothes on underneath (or bring an extra set) their costumes to change into to finish up our day.  Also be sure they have a bag to store their costumes when they take them off.   If you have any questions please let me know.  Thanks, it should be a fun day!
