October 2011 Update

I have enjoyed meeting with all of you during SEP conferences, and discussing your child's progress.
A few dates to remember:
Friday  7th:          Book Projects are due
Monday 10th:      Choir concert @ 6:00
Sunday 16th:       Karsen Bleazard's birthday!
Monday 17th:      2nd book report due for Reading Revolution
                             and picture retake day
Tuesday 18th:      Final progress report for first term/newsletter
Thursday-Monday 20-24:  NO SCHOOL (Fall Recess)
Tuesday 25th:      All work for first term must be turned in to earn the Worker's Holiday (80% average
                               is also a requirement).
Wednesday 26th:  Worker's Holiday (further info coming October 18)
Wednesday 26th:  Volcano Explosion Day (more info coming home)
November 4:         Reflection's Contest due  (Theme is "Diversity is...")
November 4:         SUU Braithwaite Gallery Tour
November 21:       Ancestor Share Fair  (more info will come home).

I encourage all my students to enter the Reflection's Contest this year.  Entries are in the office.
We are learning more about erosion and weathering in science. We'll end this unit in a week or two.
The Revolutionary War and the Declaration of Independence are the topics for social studies, and we're getting ready to print our final copies of our scar story. 
Happy birthday, Karsen!  I love having you in my class this year.

One concern:  Most of our fifth grade students need to increase their typing speed, with their fingers in the correct position.  I plan on sending home some keyboarding homework to help with this. 

This year is going very well.  I have already fallen in love with your children!
Email or call if you'd like to discuss a concern with me.
