Conferences - Thank you to all of the parents who have attended conferences so far. I know it makes for a long day and I appreciate you coming in with your children, going over the goals that we've set, and helping set up plans for a successful year. I'm looking forward to meeting with the rest of the parents on Monday and Thursday of this week. Reminders were sent home on Friday. Please email if you did not receive yours.

Early Release - Wednesday, October 25 is another early release day for the students. They will not need to bring instruments on that day. School is dismissed at 1:29pm.

The fifth graders are allowed to dress up in their most outrageous get ups to celebrate homecoming for any school of their choice! At lunchtime each class will perform some type of class spirit presentation to show their school spirit. Winning class gets to have the trophy for the year. Hair coloring, face tattoos, and sports wear are welcome!

Week 7 - October 16 - 20

Student Council - Congratulations to everyone who ran for a position for student council. It takes a brave person to get up in front of the entire school and make a speech, stand up in front of everyone, or even get enough signatures to get on the ballet. We will be voting this week on a class representative as well as an alternate.

Camp - We will be making final plans for camp this week. You should have a packing list that was in the envelope. If you need another, please let me know.

Conferences- I will be starting conferences this week. They are Tuesday and Thursday. I will send home reminders in case you do not remember your time.

Substitutes - From time to time I will be out of the classroom for meetings or personal reasons. There is an expectation that your child will continue to behave in an appropriate manner with the sub. I will try to let parents know ahead of time when that will be the case. I have a meeting this Tuesday afternoon. It can often be helpful if parents can have a conversation with their child ahead of time about this.
