Dear Parents,

        Thank you for all the participation in the Frozen Food Fundraiser. Our class sold a lot and I am grateful to the students and parents who helped with that.

             With the cooler weather upon us, the jackets and sweaters are out.  Please label your child’s outwear with his/her name as so many of them are similar (lots of navy blue) and the children don’t always recognize theirs.  


        Chick Fil A lunch orders went home Friday. Please return them in provided envelopes with exact change by Tuesday. You are not required to participate.

It’s time for parent teacher conferences, October 26-27. I would like to invite you to visit my [LINK] and sign up for a parent teacher conference with me. If those days and times do not work for you please email me directly. I can meet you another day and time that works best for both of us that week. Also, I want to mention that my door is always open if you need to speak to me. You will receive your child’s report card during your conference time.

We will be going to the California Cavern’s on our next field trip. This week I sent some information and permission slips home about this field trip coming up in November. I have several drivers already, so thank you for the huge response of volunteers. Most of the payments and permission slips have been turned in. I still need a few from a couple of students. Please send that in ASAP.  

I sent home scholastic book order forms last week. Feel free to make orders with scholastic if you need new books. You are under no obligation to do so, but they have very good deals on readers. If you do order the code for our classroom is QJ8GK which will allow us to earn free books for the classroom. Please send in to class by October 17th.
