Great First Week!

Some say the week flew by. Others find it hard to believe that it’s only been a week. Regardless, our classroom has already accomplished so much. Thanks to all the parents who came out to Open House last night and for their kind words of support. For those who were unable to make it, please find materials coming home with your child today.

To reiterate a point from last night, I will be meeting with parents in October to discuss student progress. Conference dates and times can be found below. If for any reason you were unable to schedule an appointment last night, please let me know when would be a convenient time for you. I look forward to a productive, cooperative partnership in the coming months.

Conference Dates:

  • Tuesday 10/18; Thursday 10/20
    • 1:30-5:00 (20 minute conferences)
  • Tuesday 10/25; Thursday 10/27
    • 3:30-4:30 (20 minute conferences)

Cupcake Wars!

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Theme: Summer

Participants should plan to bring in the following:

  • 6-12 cupcakes that look and taste like summer (no catfish!)
  • Prepare a label indicating the ingredients in your cupcakes
  • Prepare a short presentation to introduce your cupcake to the class

On Tuesday, be ready to display your best cupcake on your desk and then cut up the remaining to be tasted by classmates.

Your work will be judged based taste, presentation, and creativity.

Have fun and happy baking!

A school wide celebration of the arts, “Artsweek”, will take place next week.  Each class will create an art installation based on the theme of recycling. For this purpose, each student will need to bring in a piece of plastic: a water bottle, shampoo bottle, yogurt container, etc. Thank you for supporting this event.
