Hello Everyone!
Trimester 1 is quickly coming to a close a week from Friday.  That means report cards will be coming home on Friday, December 1.  As is part of our typical routine conferences will be taking place the following week. I have sent a Sign Up Genius email to all parents.  A bunch of you have already signed up which is wonderful, but if by some chance you didn't receive the email please email me to let me know and I will resend it.
Thanks so much!

Teacher Appreciation

Thank you everyone for my amazing Teacher Appreciation gift.  It was such a wonderful surprise to come to school in the morning and to see how fabulously my door was decorated!!!  The flowers are so beautiful and I am REALLY looking forward to getting my nails done.  It is so funny that you picked a nail salon that I usually go too.  What a coincidence!?!  It's been such a pleasure getting to know all of you better this year.  I want you to know that I appreciate you too!

Reading Festival

Good Morning!
So the reading festival kicks off today!  This year is a little bit different.  In an effort to try to simplify things we are not sending home a minute chart.  I have spoken with the students and told them to keep track of their minutes at home.  When they add up to an hour they should record it in their agenda.  Once they have 5 hours they should check in with me for a sticker.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you & happy reading!!!
Ms. D.
