Dear Parents and Students, 


St. Augustine: Letters and permission slips have been sent home.  Our class will be going on Friday, December 1st.  Please make sure you get the permission slip NOTARIZED.  Also, if you interested in being placed in our drawing for chaperones (we can only have 5), please make sure you turn in a Parent Volunteer Application (I have one under my PDF's).  Deposits are $40 and due on Friday, October 13th.  The final balance along with the notarized permission is due on Friday, November 10th.  It is going to be a fun information packed day.  

Book-A-Ween: We will be celebrating literacy with our fun Book-A-Ween parade.  Your child brought information home early this month regarding this event and what we will be doing in class to celebrate it.  Your child was to choose a book on their AR level to read and test on.  They may dress as a character from this book on 10/31/17.  If they choose to not dress up, then they must wear their school uniform.  I am still waiting on a few of the students to give me their book choices for approval.  They will be completing in class summaries on their book that day.  

Social Studies Project: This information was sent home on Tuesday 10/10.  Please read over the documents carefully.  Project due date: 11/15/17.


Important Information   

Reading Logs - These are due at the end of every week.  I assign four days of library book reading homework each week.  Your child should be reading nightly, though.  They need to make sure they are logging their four entries each week and getting their logs signed. 

Spelling:  The students can go to Spelling Practice and practice their spelling each week.   All they have to do is click on Login at the top right of screen and then enter the username and password in the section labeled Administrator/Teacher/Parent, press login, and then find their list to practice. Here is the username and password:
