You should all have a time scheduled next week for SEP’s, to come in with your child and meet with us. Please contact us if you do not have a time scheduled. School is dismissed each day at 2:30, including Wednesday. The middle school and orchestra will be performing for us next week and will give information to the students about joining band or orchestra next year. Your child will be registering for 6th grade at our conference and s/he will need to know if s/he wants to take band, orchestra, or be in art/music. Your child will also need to know what instrument s/he will be learning, if in band or orchestra.
North Elementary has a great after school tutoring program for all students in Iron County. It is free. The hours are M-T-Th from 3:30-5:30 and Wed. 1:30-3:30. This is a great place for kids to go to get extra math help!
We are loving our Chromebooks, thanks to a fabulous PTA. We are however, short on headphones. The PTA is working on this, but we really need them now. If you can possibly send in headphones, or earbuds, that your child can leave in his/her desk, it will make the use of our computer time much better. It would be a good idea to put them in a ziplock bag with your child’s name on it. Thank you to those who have already sent them in.
Our Worker’s Holiday will be this Friday, February 2, in the afternoon. ALL missing work on this printout must be turned in tomorrow, in order to earn the activity. Students must also have an overall score of 80%, or higher, to qualify. We will be using our computers for some fun activities, as well as playing Bingo.
We have had DARE this year, after not having it for several years. Officer Taylor has been great. We will be having our DARE graduation on Tuesday, February 20 at 2:30 in the gym. Office Taylor will ask two students from each class to read their DARE essay that day. Parents are invited to come.
Your child should have brought home a purple paper to record home reading for the next three months. This is NOT additional reading. Just record the same reading on the purple paper as you do the green planner for Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Little. For Mrs. Payne, you will need to record the time your child reads on this purple sheet, since her students don’t keep a reading log. This Kite-Flight For Reading is a Lion’s Club program, and they pay us just to have kids read! The students will be able to get a free book or kite when they turn in the reading paper on Saturday, April 28 at the Cedar Middle School soccer field. PLEASE keep the paper on the fridge, bedroom door, or somewhere it won’t get lost. Our school has earned quite a bit of money from this in the past years.
Students will celebrate Valentine’s Day in their individual classes. Class list will be sent home and those who bring Valentines need to bring one for everyone in class. Each teacher will send information.
Thank you for helping your child at home and supporting our efforts here at school. We enjoy teaching your children and seeing them succeed. Please contact us for any concerns you may have. We look forward to meeting with you and your child next week.
Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Little, & Mrs. Payne
