Well what a CrAzY week this has been... Next week things will calm down and be back to normal. No special days, no district meetings for me. On that note, I am asking that you speak to your child about following all the directions at school. We are having a BIG problem across the grade level with talking loudly and interrupting . Please remind your child that school is a place to learn and to do that you and others need to hear the teacher.  Thank you. 

No school on Monday for the children.  I will be here Monday for Staff Development all day.

 Also next week I am going to start sending home some additional writing homework.  Our writing is not where it should be at this time of the year and to get better for 1st Grade we need to do some extra practice. Because Practice makes Perfect. I have started extending  our writing time here at school and pulling some children into small groups to practice writing short senescence. I will be placing a packet of writing pages into the Homework folder. Please pick 1 each week to write 1 sentence about the picture. It should have a capital, spaces and an ending mark. You child should be able to read it to you. If they can't ask them to try again.  Because it is a short week, only 1 book will be sent home.

Tuesday,  we have asked everyone to bring a seed for Science. It can be from any fruit or vegetable. 

Have a good long weekend.
