What's New




Can you believe we are saying goodbye to October already? Coming home in an email (10/28, you will find an attachment about our Harvest Festival (10/31, 12:15-1:30), and an attachment on how to schedule a Parent/Teacher conference via Family Access for our conference days on Dec. 3rd and 4th. Here are some other classroom happenings:

  • ·         We are reviewing sight words from previous spelling lists this week, so there will be no new words or a test on Friday.
  • ·         Our phonics focus will be short u sounds.
  • ·         Any opportunity to practice skip counting by 2’s and 5’s, as well as telling time to the hour and half hour will help your student during our math time.
  • ·         During our Literacy block we are working on: Making Connections, Retelling the story (Beginning, Middle, End), Characters, Setting, and Problem/Solution.
  • ·         Friday is our first Challenger Spirit Day with the theme of….Fictional Character from a book. Please no masks, weapons, or make-up. Your child needs to come to school, prepared to wear the costume throughout the day.
  • ·         Tomorrow at our morning meeting, I will be giving a reminder that it is “Unexpected Behavior to pretend we have a weapon (bent finger, umbrella, etc) as a form of play. If you could also give a gentle reminder at home about that, I would appreciate it.
  • ·         October Reading Calendars should be returned next week.


Have a good week,

Lisa Clark
