Newsletter and Volunteers

Dear Families,

Tonight your child should have brought home a newsletter than included our classroom roster and their letter homework.  Please read through the news and check the roster to make sure it is accurate.  If you would like your information added, you can still do this, just let me know.  While I cannot post the classroom roster, I can post the newsletter here:Newsletter 9-15-14 and in case you need it our homework calendar 2014-2015 September Homework.

For those of you who signed up to volunteer in the classroom, I will be sending home a volunteer calendar.  Please check if you can do the days I have written your name on and either confirm or let me know of any changes.  Our main two times for volunteering will be 10:15 a.m. for center work and 2:00 p.m. for math workplaces.  I will be scheduling computer lab volunteers as soon as I can, but we are waiting for baseline assessments to be done school wide before we can have those volunteers come.

Remember to wear green tomorrow!

Miss Tucker

Newsletter and Notes

Dear Families,

In case you did not get this week’s newsletter, you can find it here: Newsletter 1, September 2nd.  It should have come home yesterday.  Coming home today, you should have a paper about the Erie Pride Stride.  This is the main fundraiser that Erie does throughout the year, so please read through the information in your child’s green folder.

Today was our first pizza day of the year and we had a slight snack problem: many students did not have a nut-free snack they could eat in the morning.  Snack happens before lunch, so even if your child is getting hot lunch, please send them with a snack.  Remember that snack needs to be nut free, so that it is safe to eat in our classroom for all students.

If you have older students and are coming tonight to curriculum night, I hope you have a great evening!  If you don’t have older children at Erie, you do not need to attend–Kindergarten already had our Meet the Teacher night before school started.

Have a great evening,

Miss Tucker

Testing Kindergarten Communication

Hello Families,

This is a test blog post to make sure you have a way to get our newsletters.  If you provided your email on the forms from last night or when you signed up, you have a subscription confirmation.  If you DO NOT wish to get emails from school, you do not need to do anything, you will be removed automatically next week.  If you would like to get emails from school, then please confirm your subscription.

While I am writing you, one quick remind and a request:

Reminder: our first day of school will be a gym day, so please have your child wear gym shoes their first day.  Open-toed shoes are allowed the rest of the time, but flip-flops are not.

Request: Dr. Evanski, our principal, is having all of the teachers add a set of 5-tab dividers to our supply lists.  These will be used for students’ Leadership Notebooks, which you will hear more about later.

Have a great weekend!

Our First Opportunity to Synergize!

One of the 7 Habits is synergize and it is all about working together.  Our first opportunity to do this comes from a family in our classroom that is hoping to get a new roof.  Please consider checking out the link and voting for the Tomlinson family.  If you go to: https://noroofleftbehind.com/program/mi/1128/nomination/2484#votingArea , you can vote for the Tomlinson’s in the No Roof Left Behind program.  If you do vote online you will get an email to confirm your vote, please confirm or your vote will not count.

Thank you for considering synergizing to help out part of our Erie family! (Feel free to tell others about the opportunity as well.)
