Trimester 2 Report Card Conferences
Report Card conferences for the second trimester are this week. Please remember that dismissal is at 12:00 all week. If you need to change your conference time for any reason, please let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible. Intermediate students are highly encouraged to attend conferences with their parent. Report cards went home with students today who are not having a conference.
Elective forms are due tomorrow!
Elective forms must be turned in tomorrow in order for students to receive their elective choices. We have added Creative Writing with Mrs. Wilcox on Tuesdays to the elective schedule. If your child would like to participate in this elective, please have them add it as one of their choices for Tuesday’s electives. All elective forms must be signed by a parent!
Science Fair has begun!
For rest of the month our students will be working on their science fair projects. A green packet of information went home last week which helped them outline the project. Please help your student stay on track with their science fair assignments. All science fair projects will be on display at Intermediate Celebration Night on April 27th along with each student’s Young Authors book and projects from the Walk-Through.
Please read the attached letter with information about how you can help you student complete their Young Authors book. Here is a description of what your student needs to bring in so that they can bind their book:
In the past, students have enjoyed creating covers for their books. If your student would like to do this, they will need to bring 2 pieces of cardboard 8 ½ X 11 size or foam board (called foamies-soft/flexible) Many students like the foamies much better . They also need ½ yard of any fabric they choose for their cover. If your student does not wish to bind their book this way, they can choose to bring in 2 sheets of white card stock paper for the cover and back (good idea to send a few extra in case of mistakes). In this case the cover will have the title, the student’s name, and an illustration. We have some binding combs and a machine to bind them.
ACA II Walk-a-Thon
Mark your Calendars…… WALK-A-THON DAY: Friday, March 31st!!
The Walk-a-thon Team is working hard to make this year’s event very special for your student!
It’s not too early to talk to family and friends about becoming a sponsor! We will have official forms and packets coming out soon, and we are using 99Pledges.com for our online donation collection again this year. Look for more details to come!
We are currently looking for small items for the goodie bags (for 200 students), and/or more significant raffle items. Small raffle items can be combined with other donations to create a significant raffle prize. No item too small! For example: a pair of movie tickets, a Starbuck’s gift card and a new water bottle combined make a nice raffle prize! These donations can be dropped off in the office anytime! Please clearly mark all items.
