Dear Parents,

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Tomorrow morning the students will be taking their last MAP test. Please make sure you send in a hearty and healthy snack for your child tomorrow.

Next Monday October 21st there will be NO SCHOOL.

Friday October 25Th we will be having our first quarter Student Led-Conferences there is no school on this day. I will be sending home different time options for your conference with your child. Please return your chosen time as soon as possible. I will try to accommodate your first choice as best as I can. You will be allotted a time during which you and your child can come to class together. During this time, your child will show you around the classroom and explain what he/she has been learning. It is also the time you will receive your child's report card and when the teacher will discuss with you any concerns that she might have regarding your child's learning.

'Book Character Day' is not too far away. We would like to remind you that your child will be encouraged to come dressed like his/her favorite book character on Thursday, October 31st and be ready to present his/her costume and book to the class. There is a link to 'Country Living' that shows how to make homemade costumes under the 'Links' heading for the parents who are thinking of making a costume.
