Thanksgiving Potluck this Thursday
You or your student may drop off food in the kitchen by the gym in the morning or as you arrive.
Please note these special lunch times for students:
11:00-11:30 – Pre-K and Kindergarten
11:30-12:00 – 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades
12:05-12:35 – 4th, 5th and 6th
12:10-12:40 – 7th-12th grades
We still have many open volunteer spots to fill. Please consider coming 30 minutes early or staying 30 minutes after your child’s lunchtime to volunteer. Thank you!
There will be a gluten free table available. Please mark your gluten free food items.
Enjoy Your Break! (Then, enjoy school on November 27th.)
We are all looking forward to a nice long break from studies next week. As you look over your grade level lesson plan, you’ll notice that we do not have lessons for November 20-25th. We do, however, end our current weekly plan with lessons scheduled for Monday, November 27th. Some families with PreK-4th graders find it helpful to go ahead and do parts of that day’s lesson on the Friday before break to maintain continuity and lighten the first home day after break. This can be helpful to families. If you do this, please take a few minutes on the 27th to review basic concepts so students are prepared for class on the 28th.
Overall, Operation Student Crosswalk Safety is going well. So far all students have gotten to school and back home again without injury, so that’s a plus! A big Providence “Thank you” to Mr. Scott and Mrs. Cummins for their diligence and attention to safety in the crosswalk! However, we would like to present a few observations:
|PreK-2nd Grade Art Show Thursday, November 16th from 11:00-12:45As you enjoy the Thanksgiving potluck, you’ll be able to enjoy our PreK-2nd grader’s art show in the gym. If you have students in these grades and have some time to help hang this art for display tomorrow, please contact our art teacher email@example.com.
You’re Doing It!
Remember when you had a vision of the parent you wanted to be – involved with your child’s education, spending time together, sharing what you know, and learning interesting things? You are doing it! You are being that person! Good for you and good for your child!
It may or may not be as lovely as you thought, but the lovely moments come and they are truly beautiful when they do.
3rd Grade Long Division Workshop for Co-teachers and Students is tomorrow
This workshop is designed to help co-teachers and their 3rd graders learn the basics of long division together. This is a great opportunity to make sure you are “teaching like the teacher” so your child benefits from consistency of using the same vocabulary and methods at both school and home. We’ll meet in room 245 at 3:05 p.m. Please bring a quiet activity for your little ones.
1st Grade Making Ten Math Workshop for Co-teachers and Students November 16th
