Looking for a Leader of Lunch

Dear Families,

Next Thursday is our Leadership Day at Erie!  We have a chance to celebrate the 7 Habits and help out others in the education community as they come to our school.  In order to this, the planning team has decided to serve lunch in the classrooms.  Each teacher needs 2 parent volunteers to run lunch for their classroom, so I am looking for 2 parents who would be willing to give about 40 minutes of their time to help serve pizza, open juice boxes, and help students clean up afterwards.  This would be on Thursday, April 24th.

If you are interested in being a Leader of Lunch for Thursday, April 24th, please send me a message.

Happy Reading,

Miss Tucker

Newsletter is Ready

Dear Families,

Read on to hear more about our week:Newsletter 24 3-31-14 .

Students were overjoyed to get to finally start going outside for recess again.  We will continue to do so as long as the weather is appropriate (not raining, not freezing).  Remember Seussical is tomorrow–Erie wear or green and white would be a great way to help us keep our class together!

News of the Week

Hello Families,

Here is our newsletter: Newsletter 23 3-24-14.  Click to read more about what we will be learning this week!  The letter about our current math unit and a copy of the sight words are attached to the papers in your student’s green folder that came home today.

Reminders:

  • Tomorrow is our last day to roller skate.
  • Wednesday is an early release day.
  • Baggie books will be coming home by Friday if your child did not get one yet.

Eric Carle Study Week and ClassDojo

Dear Families,

Here is our newsletter for this week:Newsletter 21 3-10-14

Students have also been excited for me to send home how to access ClassDojo.com, our new behavior tracking website/app.  There are a few main reasons we are using it instead of the clipchart.

1. We can keep it private.

2. Everyone can reach since it is on the Smartboard.

3. It doesn’t disappear at the end of the day so it can’t get lost.

4.  It helps see data points and trends in behavior.

Codes will come home tomorrow with a slip to return to let me know if you are choosing to get behavior reports.  If you choose to sign up, these will replace daily charts being sent to and from school.  Note; please remember we are still learning to use the app so data isn’t perfect yet.  I will be adding more types of positive and negative behaviors.

Have a good evening and keep reading!

Bagel Day Tomorrow

Hello Families,

Tomorrow is bagel day.  Bagels are 75 cents if your child would like to purchase one for snack or to save for lunch.

A detailed list will come home tomorrow since we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss with different activities next week.  Look forward to some Seussical fun!

Happy Reading,

Miss Tucker
