Welcome parents to a very exciting school year. Your child will be challenged this school year and will be given many responsibilities that will enable them to grow academically.
Within this website, you will be offered a fun and alternative way of studying with your child. For those who wish to advance, there are 100 high frequency words that are available and should be studied on a daily basis. Please remember to read daily with your child asking various comprehension questions such as who? what? where? when?, and why?
Please note, at the end of this message, there are kid friendly computer links that the children can play with. There are addition and subtraction games, flashcards, and vocabulary links that are age appropriate.

*On Friday, October 26th, we will have our school Halloween Parade beginning at 9:00 am. Students will be able to wear their costume on that day only. WE WILL NOT DRESS UP ON WEDNESDAY THE 31ST!!!!
* We will be administrating formal assessments the week of October 15, 2012. These assessments will be used to identify our RTI groups. Language Arts and Math will both be assessed. You may help your child prepare for these assessments by reviewing letter recognition, letter/sound recognition and number recognition.
*Thank you to all parents who attended. Thank you also to all parents who offered to volunteer in the classroom and at home.
*RTI will be starting shortly for the Kindergarten students. This is where our kinder students will be grouped according to their needs. Lots of intensive, hands on, language arts instruction will be modeled.
*October book orders were handed out on October 5, 2012. I encourage families to stock up their libraries at home, and focus on sight word books, phonics readers, and easy grade level readers. Book orders are now due, and will not be accepted after October 19, 2012. If your children are coming home on a regular basis with a green card/happy face, I encourage you to treat them to a book or two for their class efforts.
*Homework packets sent back with a +3/4 is a complete packet. Please continue to work on homework every day and complete it. Responsibility begins at home!
Please remember to read, read, read, every night with your children! Always remember to help your child at home with his/her homework.
Flashcards can be found on my schoolnotes.com website. (Where you will find most of this information available.)
