It’s that time of the year where delayed gratification and managing our time is crucial. As the evenings get colder, the football games more intense, and the feeling of lounging by the fireplace (hopefully it will be cold enough) seem tempting, we have work to do…then we’ll celebrate!
This week, we have several important things happening. Tuesday & Wednesday our students will be testing their writing skills on producing an argument writing piece. Please make sure your child rests the night before, eats breakfast, and also dresses warm (it’ll be raining through the week).
Also, we have our Gallery of Experts happening in three weeks. It’s a showcase where you are the audience and have the opportunity to see how your child has incorporated all their learning in language arts, writing, and science/social studies in their Gallery of Experts project. Because of the importance of this event, I’ll be more than glad to open the doors of our classroom as a study hall after school from 2:45 – 3:45 pm. The students will have access to laptops, iPads, and I’ll be able to answer any questions that they may have. I usually have tutoring on Monday’s and Tuesday’s so their company in the class won’t be a hinderance, as long as they are focused and working.
I need your help! First, I need your help in making sure your child stays accountable to the work being assigned. I know many of you ask your children, “Do you have any homework?” or “Is your homework done?”, but if you could go the extra step and have your child show you what their homework may be would be great. Ask them, “Please show me your TenMarks, Blog draft, Science/Social Studies notes.” I’ve had several stories where parents come to me saying, “I’ve been asking Tiny Tim if his homework is finished, and he said yes.” It’s imperative that we work together in making sure you’re child is dedicating the work week to their education.
Second, I’ve attached the following links regarding our Winter Wonderland taking place on December 5th from 4pm – 7pm. Please click on the following links to see how our class needs your help.
If you’ve made it to the end of this note, congratulations. Thank you for your investment towards your child. I’m here to serve and answer any questions you may have.
