This Week

We will spend the next two weeks thinking about empathy.  The Ugly Duckling is our story for the week.

School Lunch

Have ever wanted to have your child eat school lunch but you weren’t happy with the choices?  Worry no longer!  Our new nutrition coordinator for the district is all about healthy and local.  Hot dogs are still on the menu but are made from uncured beef by Thousand Hills Farms.  I have worked in the district for 20 years and I can finally say the meals are healthy and nutritious. We have come a long way from milk in a plastic bag (imagine the mess) Check out the menu online, put some money in your child’s account and have them try the lunches.

The Gum Jar-

    Sometimes a stick of gum helps us feel calm and focused while we are doing our work.  Write a note and tell me if you are ok with your child having gum at school.  When we have enough gum to open the gum jar,  we’ll start handing out one piece a day.  

Minnesota Harvest Orchard Trip

 The field trip is on October 11th, not the 12th.  The cost will be $11.00.  The permission slip is included in this week’s BEE book.

MAP tests…

    Are for second graders only!  1sr graders will be working on math with Emily while 2nd graders take the test.  
October 4th 12:30-1:30
October 9th 12:30-1:30.

Author’s Tea

Thursday, November 1, from 7:45-8:45, we’ll be reading our original fairy tales at our 1st author’s tea.  Save the date!


    We have a computer program at Barton called Lexia.  The program focuses on phonics practice.  If you are interested in loading the program onto your computer, I sent directions last week in the BEE books.  Karin, our reading specialist, is checking in with students working the program at home. Let me know if you’re interested.

We need- snacks and lots of gum!  

Thanks!  Kristin
