Rebecca Till -- Room 216

Welcome to Room 216. I am glad you are here. I am excited to be part of a school that allows children to learn and grow in a supportive and nurturing environment. We encourage development of both knowledge and self confidence, and I will use a variety of teaching techniques that encourage learning in different ways.

Dear Parents,

I sent home swimming permission slips yesterday. We are swimming next Tuesday through Friday. Please have students return their slips on Monday if possible.
Our next popcorn day is February 24th. I will need a few helpers to pop that day if you are available.
Nora, the health teacher, would like to request some materials for her health class that begins on Monday and lasts for two weeks.
She is in need of:
Honeycrisp apples
Saltine crackers
empty soda cans or bottles
empty gallon containers of skim, 1%, 2%, whole and chocolate 1% milk.

Thank you for your help and have a great weekend!!

Dear Parents,
Tomorrow is our field trip to Orchestra Hall. There are about twelve students who have not returned their permission slips. Please remember to send it tomorrow. There is no cost for this trip.
February 10th is our portfolio share from 7:30 to 8:30 AM. Your student will share their work with you and it will also be time to sign up for a conference.
February 17th is our district conference day. Conferences will run all day that day, and I will also offer some evening times.
Thank you!

First Assignment of the Year. Due Tuesday, September 6

Your writer's notebook is going to be your most important writing tool this year, and you'll be using it almost every day.  Often writers decorate their notebooks to make them uniquely theirs.  Because what's inside your notebook will be different from what's inside anyone else's, you'll want to make the outside of your notebook different than anyone else's as well.  You'll want to make it a writer's notebook that reflects who you are and what's important to you.

Your homework assignment is to collect materials you'd like to put on the cover of your writer's notebook so that it reflects who you are.  You might find special photos, quotes, words, or drawings.  Bring these to school on Tuesday and we'll save some time to decorate our notebooks.  This is a "no stress" assignment.  Be creative and have fun!
