Tomorrow is game day for my Reading classes after working so hard for 2 days on their Common Assessment.  I am very proud of them for their hard work and dedication.

If you have not sent a stocking for your child for the Penny Christmas, please do so by next Wednesday, Dec. 12th.  That day we will begin passing out treats in our stockings, so we need all stockings here by then.  We have 20 students in our class, 11 girls and 9 boys, if you are wondering how many treats to send.

In planners, we have written down all the upcoming activities that I know of so far for the week of Dec. 17th-20th. Please look to see what is happening that week.

On the letter I sent home about the Penny Christmas, I forgot to let you know how many girls and boys we have in class.  As of today, we have 11 girls and 9 boys.

We will be sending home notes and/or making phones calls about how you can help with our Christmas party.

Our party will be on Dec. 20th from 9-10 am.

Details to come soon.

Students will not be required to fill out a Reading Log this week.

Also, if your child earned the chance to ride on the party bus for the fundraiser, that will be happening on Wednesday.  I will be riding the bus with them to Chickfila.

Also, items for the fundraiser will need to be picked up on Thursday.

Last week before Thanksgiving!  I am thankful for a week off to relax and spend time with family.

Today is the first day for Reading Logs to be sent home.  They are due on Friday.  Students should have a library book that is coming home each night, also.  If not, they can read another book they have at home.  Even if students miss a night of reading, I always tell them to turn in their Reading Log anyway or double up on their reading the next night.

Something is better than nothing!!! Just READ!

I just wanted to send a reminder about a few important dates and events coming up.

Next Monday and Tuesday will be STAAR testing days, so no visitors at lunch and be sure students are here on time those days.

Next Friday, May 18th, will be our 4th grade trip to the Splash Pad.  Students who have received discipline marks will sit out 5 minutes for each mark.  Students who have had an office referral or ISS will not be allowed to go.  On Skyward, their conduct grade will reflect how many marks they have received.  One mark equals one point deducted from conduct grade.

Tuesday, May 22nd, will be 4th grade awards day.  That will also be an early release day.

Wednesday, May 23rd, will also be an early release day and the last day of school.

This year has flown by.  I can’t believe we only have a few more days till summer!

Due to 5th grade STAAR testing tomorrow next door to my classroom we have to be VERY quiet, so my Reading classes will have a DEAR Day.  Students can bring a small blanket or beach towel, small pillow or stuffed animal, lots of books to read,  and a non messy snack/drink.
