a few things...

1) Our spelling test will be on Thursday. Please return their blue spelling duos on Thursday so I can add next weeks words.
2) Parent Teacher Interviews will be on Wednesday and Thursday night. I will need to meet with EVERYONE at some point over the next week, so please make arrangements with me if your scheduled interview time does not work for you.
3) NO SCHOOL FRIDAY...this is an inservice day for teachers.
4) Please send a shoe box to school with your child as soon as possible as they will each need one for a science project we will be doing.

See you at interviews :)

Tomorrow is NOT Rider Pride Day!
It has been changed to Nov. 20th

Friday was the last day of school before our 5 DAY BREAK! Everyone is so excited to have a few days off.
Wednesday is Remembrance day so don't forget to take part in ceremonies, thank a solider, or take a minute of silence.
We will NOT have a spelling test on Friday the 13th but their new words will be given to them for the following Friday (20th) test. Please make sure their BLUE spelling duo is brought back to school next week. Their small pink Hilroy (spelling test booklet) will also need to be returned.
I did send home some work books; if your child brought them home they have corrections that need fixed. They can be returned to school Thursday.
I also sent home some reading sheets. The kids were excited on Friday when they saw some of their names in the stories.
We just finished a spider unit and will be starting a bear one when we get back so I am looking forward to that.
We are just starting adding in Math. And are busy working on new words and sounds like ch,sh,th,etc. in Language Arts.
If you have any questions feel free to call, email, or leave the questions as a comment here on the blog.
Have a SUPER 5 days off!!

I hope you all had a very good Halloween weekend! Thank you to everyone who made it to our Halloween parade and party as well as to those who sent treats! I will ask that you refrain from sending your child Halloween treats in his/her lunch or for morning snack. Sugary snacks really hinder learning and make it hard for your child to concentrate. Please stick to healthy food choices.
Have a super day :)
