Announcements We are really stressing the importance of being kind to our friends at school and including everyone when we play outside, or when a friend wants to sit with us at lunch, or when a friend asks us to Buddy Read during workstations, etc. The kids are very excited to share with us and with you, all of the different ways that they are showing kindness to their friends. Please ask them about it when they get home from school.
We love birthday parties, but please keep in mind that parties need to be held during lunch in the cafeteria at 10:52.
Box Tops: Keep sending your box tops! Our class has a great collection so far!
Please check your child's GO Notebook DAILY.

Some of our friends are not completing their class work during workstation time. At the beginning of the year we sent home a letter explaining that we would not have homework this year unless they had assignments that they were not finishing in class. We are going to start going through their word work folders at the end of each week and sending home what they did not finish on Mondays. Please check your child's folder to see if he/she has work to complete and send it back to school to be graded.
There are also some friends who need some extra practice with their spelling words. Those friends who need extra practice are coming home with a letter today explaining what they need to do each night with their spelling words to help them study. I will be checking their folders daily to make sure that they are completing their assignments. Once their scores go up on their spelling tests we can go back to our normal daily assignments, but until then we think that they will benefit from the extra practice.
