It was great to meet with each of you for Parent Teacher Conferences this past week! Thank you for taking the time to come in. It was so helpful to sit down with each one of you and talk about ways to help your child. I wanted to make you aware of a few things that are coming up this month.
Science-Weather: This month for science we are learning about Weather. Your student hopefully brought home a weather calendar that they should be recording their weather observations on. If they did not, one is posted on my website. They just need to record how it feels and what they see. We are recording the actual temperature, humidity, air pressure, and wind each day here at school. They learned to identify clouds yesterday and were really excited today to tell me about the cumulonimbus and stratonimbus clouds they saw.
History - How Geography Affects Us: We are still continuing to learn about Geography and how it has affected where people chose to live.
Character Ed: Our character strength this month is Humor. I am really excited about this particular character strength because we are really focusing on appropriate times to use that character strength. Something that Mrs. Cutler shared with the students today is that your laugh can tell a lot about you.
End of Quarter 1: The end of our first quarter is fast approaching! All assignments/retakes need to be handed in before October 17th. Please check your child's Aspire account to see their progress. Email me or their other teachers if you have any questions.
Fall Break: Fall Break will be October 18th-19th with an early release day on the 17th.
Red Ribbon Week: Our Red Ribbon Week will be October 22nd- 26th. More details will come as it gets closer.
Picture Retake Day: Picture Retake day will be on October 24th.
Halloween: Our Halloween party is on October 31st. Your child is allowed to wear their costume, but we ask that they don't have on excessive make-up, face paint, or a mask. Weapons, even if they go with their costume and are fake, are not allowed.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
