Portfolio Sharing -- June 4, 2013
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 3:20 PM

I want to let you know that we will have our final Portfolio Share of the year on Tuesday, June 4, 2013. This will provide you with an opportunity to sit down with your child and look through their examples of “Best Work” for the entire year. This is work they have chosen and written about.

Our class tradition on this day has been that parents/ families come at our lunch time --10:35 and bring lunches for themselves and their child. The kids really appreciate this (they love it!) and it creates a festive atmosphere for the end of the year. After lunch and looking at your child's work, you are welcome to take your child home early.

If you are unable to attend Wednesday Lunch but would like to come another time (or day) you are most welcome. You are invited to come at any time from 7:30 to 1:00. We understand and try to accommodate the varying schedule needs you all have. If you are unable to come at all, please let us know. We have a number of adults in the school who will sit with your child and review their work. If you have any further questions please feel free to call me at 668-3580.

Note About Camping Weekend
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 3:20 PM

Dear Families,

I hope you and your children are recovering from the camping trip and long weekend. Several parents took photos while we were there. I hope your child will take time to tell you about all the wonderful photos. We had a great time. This was one of the best groups we have ever taken camping. They did a great job and as always there are some unique adventures and stories to talk about.

Thank you one and all for a wonderful year and a fabulous group of kids. Thank you also to the parents who helped with camping. We could not have done it without you. I look forward to seeing you all next Tuesday.

Room 216 Upcoming Events
Wednesday, March 6, 2013 7:45 PM

Dear Families,
I realize this is short notice but if your child has not already told you-- they are singing and rapping at the All School Morning Meeting on Friday Mar 8th, at 7:30am. This is our kickoff to the Barton Plant Sale. If you would like to see them please feel free to come.

Also the entire Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth grades are all invited free of charge to the MN Horse Expo and to see Ma'Ceo under the big top tent at no charge on Friday April 26th as a school field trip. (I have attached the flyer for Ma'Ceo.) This is just a heads up as we need parent chaperones -- we will need a lot of them. I will send the bus info and permission slip soon. I think this will be great fun!
Have a great weekend

Valentine's Day, MCA Homework, and Conferences
Monday, February 11, 2013 7:25 PM

Dear Families,

This week we have Valentines Day on Thursday the 14th, The students are working to earn a Valentines Party on Thurs afternoon (They will earn something) so sending them to bed early this week would be very helpful. See the email I sent out for the Class list so kids can do Valentines if they choose to. My only rule about Valentines is that if they bring for someone in the class- they need to bring for everyone. They do not have to do Valentines.

The homework for the next couple weeks will be practice questions for the MCA - We will do a couple a day and discuss them the next morning. I hope this will make students more deliberate and focus if we are all placing importance on these questions. Also it will perhaps give you parents a better awareness of the test content.

I will be starting conferences at the end of February. I sent a schedule in the email. Please feel free to respond either by email or by note via child.

Have a great week.
