Sunday Salutations

Hello Everybody,

Whether you picked apples, decorated for Halloween, or spruced up your yard with fall flowers, this weekend by far was simply amazing.

My Saturday was spent working on report cards and lesson plans both of which I enjoy doing because I get to see the progress made by our 22 students since day one. In addition, I can get a sneak peek at our busy calendar as the next grading period begins to ramp up with lots of fun stuff to do.

Speaking of report cards, they will be sent home on Tuesday for you to look over, sign, and return to your homeroom teacher as soon as possible. Please send the report card back in the envelope that’s been provided. Thank you very much. Also, we will make sure that you have an extra copy of your student’s report card for your own needs.

Here are few things to be aware of in the coming weeks:

Wednesday, October 31 is Halloween. This holiday is rather low-key yet fun and festive. Our students can dress up in an educational type costume, and our yummy snack will be a definite treat. Thanks to those parents who signed up to bring in snacks for all 22 students and our book buddies. You are “spooktacular!”

Friday, November 16 at 9:30, we will be making sandwiches in our classrooms with our book buddies for Must Ministries. We need parents, grandparents, and older siblings to help and supervise while all of the students make hundreds of sandwiches for Must Ministries. More details to come when we get closer to the date.

Friday, November 30 is our Holidays around the World presentations and dessert buffet. Parents are invited to join us in the afternoon as we celebrate this beautiful holiday season. Again, I will send out more information later.

2nd Book Report Presentations will be Monday, December 17. The books on my bookshelves have been changed out, so our students are welcome to search for the perfect book for their next book report. Some of the books are from the book fair, so they are ready to be read and critiqued.

Academically, we are continuing and nearly done with addition and subtraction, nouns, and our novel. Please keep an eye on your student’s homework for assessments happening later this week and before Halloween. Thank you.

That’s all for now. Please know that my door is always open and my email is available, if you ever have a question, concern, or compliment to share or address.

Take care, and I hope you have a pleasant week.
