We are so excited for our upcoming classroom Thanksgiving celebration, this Wednesday. Every child is part of a group and will be responsible to work together to create a dish for our event. Parents are welcome to come at noon, when all will be ready to enjoy. Please have your child show the paper they filled out with their group that shows what they have agreed to bring to school on Wednesday. We request that students stay at school long enough to clean up and enjoy some exciting science experiments after recess.
Parent conferences are in full swing. If you have not signed up for a time, please do so. Please bring your child with so they can have an opportunity to show off their amazing work.
Students have been enjoying our online language program that provides customized and individualized instruction according to reading levels and interests. We encourage all students to try it at home as well. All students have recorded their username and password in their planners. Simply go to www.connectEd.mcgraw-hill.com to login. This login also works for those using the 6th and 7th grade math books and will provide additional lessons, resources and customized support.
Our class is quickly becoming skilled at poetry and we decided to publish our first hardcover volume of selected poems. If you have any thick cardboard, card stock, fabric, or spray glue to donate for cover construction, that would be great!
Please stay tuned to more information from our 6th and 7th graders about upcoming holiday events they are planning. One of our new events will be a holiday Christmas shop which will be fundraiser for our 2 class outings this year. If you have anything that you could donate for the children to sell, please let us know.
We thank you so much for your amazing support at home and school and look forward to seeing you at conferences or our other activities, whichever comes first.
Ms. Liza and Kathy
