Student led conferences will be held November 7, 2016. Thank you to those who already signed up!
Your students are very excited to share their learning and progress with you. They have been working to set goals, collect evidence and prepare a portfolio. I encourage you to carve out time to meet with your student for 15 minutes on November 7.
I will send home a letter this week with available conference times. Please select your top three choices and email me email@example.com - I will do my best to accommodate your choice. First come, first served!
Timed Multiplication Tests
Students should be preparing to show mastery of multiplication facts.
Last week I sent home your student's pretest. Your students have been asked to identify a fact family to master for each day of testing. Please see the calendar. Students are earning incentives for each group of facts they master. Please help your student by practicing with them.
Testing will wrap up before Winter Break with a post-test which will be a Math grade for Q2.
We are beginning classes in the trailer on Monday morning. If all goes well, we will be back in our new classroom in 5 weeks.
The following procedures will help to keep our children safe and maximize our learning time:
*Students will come to the Trailer #2 at 9:00. Students arriving after 9:10 will need to be signed in at the office before they can come to the trailer.
*Breakfast students must get breakfast before coming to the trailer. I cannot release them once they have entered the trailer.
*Students are never permitted in the parking lot.
*Students will be given group bathroom breaks at strategic times of the day. Students will be strongly discouraged from using the bathrooms outside of these times for safety and instructional purposes.
*Parents must sign in to the office before visiting our classroom.
Please review these procedure with your child. Thank you!
