Monday 11/1/2010

Hello students and family!

I hope everyone's Halloween was fun and safe! We're back at school for another great week!

In Language Arts we are starting our new theme, "Give it All You've Got", along with our first selection from the theme, "Michelle Kwan: Heart of a Champion". The new spelling and vocabulary words can be found on the left side of the blog.

Your children should be bringing home a Spelling + Vocabulary/Language Arts packet that is to be completed by this Friday, November 5th.

Please remember that Reading Logs are checked each day and turned in each Monday! They are an easy way to gain points and contribute to the class Reading/Language Arts grade. 


-This Friday is a short day with dismissal at 12 noon! 
-There is no school on November 11th, 2010 for Veterans' Day.
-Parent/Teacher Conferences are November 12th, so be sure to turn in your conference time request to the main office!

Thank you!

-Ms. Jordan

PS: We created wonderful shirts with the "Digestive System" on them. Pictures are to come soon! Ask your child about his/hers :-)
