Dear Parents,

Maybe the wintery precipitation will cease after this week.  We are really looking forward to the flowers blooming and butterflies bringing color to our environment.  Spring brings forth beautiful lessons for the children to practice relating learnings to their surroundings.  

As some of you may already know, Mrs. Meela has been giving the opportunity to Co-Teach in the 9-12 building next year.  She will be going to training during the summer and will begin teaching for the 2014-2015 school year in the upper elementary level.   We wish her the best in her endeavors as she will be greatly missed.

Kids Fest will be held on April 11, 2014 as originally planned.  We have had a number of parents who are willing to help make the uniforms for Kids Fest.  Please contact us and let us know what you are willing to do as far as sewing is concerned.  We will also need people to make tradition foods and sigh up for our game/craft that night.  Something will come home soon for this.   Please make sure your child is working on their Kids Fest project.  These will be presented the week of April 7th- 11th.   Saturday, April 12, 2014 is a make-up school day.  Students should wear normal uniforms on that day.

Spelling List:

1st list- truck, trip, try, trap, trod, tribe, trick, track, tree, trot

Dear parents,

We have been studying weather.  Ask your child about precipitation and the water cycle.  We have also been doing clock and money work.  Please encourage them to study math facts and read.   

This coming Monday we will be going on our field trip to the aquarium.  Please put your child in their red spirit shirt; that way we can spot them easily!  They can bring money for the gift shop, if they desire.  We will be leaving here promptly at 8:00 so if you are chaperoning, please be here by 7:45 and children too.  Thanks! If your child is still using a car seat, (8o pounds or under 8) you must send it with them or they will not be able to go on the field trip. Siblings are not allowed on field trips. Once driving arrangements/seating is made, we are not changing it. We turn these arrangements in to the office and they are final. If your child needs to be dismissed by another parent after the field trip, we need a note or they will not be released.  

We appreciate all of you who have volunteered to drive and chaperone.  We could not do it without you!!!!

Dear Parents,

All the children have picked a topic on Ireland that they would like to research.  All second and third years should have at least 10 facts.  First years should have at least 5 facts.  They are certainly welcome to do more.  They need to rewrite the information they find in their own words.   We will give them the chance to research at school and they are welcome to research at home as well.  We would like them to put together some kind of display for their presentation at home.  A book, poster, model, shadow box etc.  Let them be creative.  We will ask for the project to be brought in and presented the week of Kid Fest.  That week is the 7th through 11th of April.  Please hold on to displays until then.

Several children have asked if they can do more than one project.  They are welcome to do that after they complete the first one.

We have wrapped up our body unit and will be moving on to weather and the water cycle.  Please feel free to send in any books on these subjects.  We will continue our studies of Ireland and different types of measurement.

Mrs. King and her mother are going to make vests for the boys this week.  We will let you know the cost later.  We have parents willing to make simple skirts, so I need to know if each girl has already ordered one or will need one made.   Please let us know if your child is not going to be at kid fest if you know.

Field trip slips are due by this Friday.  Please let us know if you can drive others and chaperone!  We need people.

We will send home a big piece of white paper for you and your child to label with the main organs, if you are interested.  Please send in a note and let us know if you want to do this.

 We would like to welcome Sandy Crisp to our classroom.  She is interning this semester from BCCC and will be working closely with our students.  We look forward to exciting activities/lessons that she brings.  Newsletters will be sent home explaining what she is doing with the students.

Dear parents,

Our food drive for Eagles Wings was a great success.  We donated tons of food and a few of our third years were able to go and work there for a while this morning!!  We have exceeded our goal for The Heifer Project.  We are still encouraging the children to earn money to give.  Many are working hard to earn money but some students have not donated to this project yet.  This is a great opportunity to teach our children to think about others.

Thank you to the families of James and Nick for classroom donations.  We need napkins, spoons and table wipes, if you would like to make a donation.  Thank you to Leigh White for being a great room mom!  Thank you to the families of Thomas, Camryn, and Katelyn for our special snack this week.

Dear Parents,

We are enjoying these beautiful fall mornings.  We have really been focusing on the time line of life.  We are discussing fish and other aquatic animals.  The children are starting to research about these.  We are also learning the history of the days of the week as well as talking about time lines.  Of course we are still doing all our main subjects such as reading, math, spelling, writing, language etc.

We sent home our art t-shirts.  The children really enjoyed doing these.  This is a fun project you can do at home. Ask the children to explain what we did.  You will need shirts, 91 percent alcohol, solo type cups, rubber bands, Q-tips and sharpies.

It is that time of year when children like to wear sweaters and sweatshirts in the classroom.  Please make sure these meet the uniform requirements.  Thank you.

We would like to thank the families of Serena and Thomas for their donations to the classroom. A special thanks to Leigh White for organizing drivers and helping with the field trip.

Have a great week.

Thanks for all that you do,

Christy and Meela

Dear parents,

We hope all is well on the home front.  We are doing great at school.  We have had our second great lesson; The Coming of Life.  We are looking forward to introducing the children to many of the zoology and botany works in the next coming weeks.  We hope our students have been sharing some of their works with you.  We have had some beautiful collages created in art and some wonderful maps made in cultural this week.  We have a very creative bunch!

We sent home a field trip slip on Friday.  We will be going to the Estuarium.  This will go right along with the work will be doing on living things.  We ask that these be returned By Wednesday October 3.  Thank you.  Please volunteer to drive if you can.  You will also have to pay for the field trip.  The ice cream scoops will not be as big as the ones you usually get a Scoops.  We asked them to make them smaller and charge us less.   This is going to be a fun trip!!

Thank you to Eddie’s mom for finding us a new aquarium for our hermit crabs!  Thanks also for classroom donations from Katelyn’s family.  Thanks to the many parent who have come in and helped in the classroom and the apples from Helen’s family.

September 16, 2013

Dear families,

Hi, we hope that all of you have had a great start to the school year and are feeling more settled.  We are moving along wonderfully in the classroom.  We are well into all of the subjects.  Ask your student what they are doing for language, geometry, math, cultural, writing, and reading.  We also did an art lesson on proportion and portraits this week.  There are some good artist in our class.  Ask them about the Mona Lisa.

We are going to have Violin on Mondays at 12:50 from now on.  Sorry about the short notice.  We just got the schedule worked out on Friday.  I told the students, but did not have a chance to get a letter out.

I have had a few people ask me about the spelling list.  First and second years are able to test out of their list and move on to the next list to challenge themselves, if they like.  The list corresponds with the word work the children are reviewing during the week.  

Once again we have had great support.  Thanks for all the art donations.  Now all we need is to make sure everyone has a white t-shirt.  Please send those in as soon as possible. Thanks.

Thanks to the families of James, Logan, Serena, and Jubbilee for all the great donations this week.

Have a great week.
