Tomorrow is Picture Day!

A friendly reminder that tomorrow is Picture Day! Be sure to remind students to bring their picture day forms with the order information complete if you would like to order fall pictures.

Sign the Green Folder!

Just a reminder: please review and sign your student’s weekly work in their green folder each weekend! Inside the folder is the work they did for the week and what work they still have to do. There are also notes in there from the teachers! It is important to review your student’s folder with them every week!

Research Projects

Research projects are underway! Please check in with your student about their progress on their project. This week their bibliography and second page of notes are due. If this is your student’s first research project and you missed the presentation at Back to School Night, please come in one day after school to look at the samples we have. Presentations will be the week of October 21st.

Microwaves at lunch

Please continue to assist us in implementing our new policy- no microwaves at lunch. We know that, for years, Intermediate students were allowed to microwave their lunches  in the classroom because there was always adult supervision. These days, the intermediate teachers have more responsibilities outside their classrooms at lunch and aren’t always able to supervise. In the interest of student safety, we started suggesting “no microwaving” last year and have  fully implemented it this year. The students have been told in their small class meetings and whole group meetings that there is no microwaving allowed. Thank you for all the support we’ve seen since we announced it at Back-to- School Night.

Our first scholastic book order form will be going home in student mailboxes this week. Please remember that we are doing online orders only. Orders are due by Friday October 4th.
