Your children were well-behaved and respectful on our field trip yesterday, and we heard over and over, “This is the best field trip ever!” We teachers had a good time, as well. We didn’t schedule the Cedar Breaks overlook into our schedule, but they were kind enough to let us in without a fee waiver. We feel very fortunate about that. Thanks for helping, chaperoning, and preparing your kids for the day.
Here are a few items to calendar:
*First Lego League. If your child wants to be a part of this team, s/he needs to write an essay on what makes her a good candidate, why he desires to be a part of this, etc. The essay doesn’t need to be lengthy; it just needs to show their commitment and desire. Bring it to school by this Friday, September 28.
*SEP’s October 3-7. If you haven’t sent back the paper confirming the time scheduled for you, please do so asap. We look forward to visiting with you and your child. Also, this during week we will administer the SAGE Interim Assessment. This will help us see what your students already know and how we can best help them this year.
*Volcano Explosion Day-Wednesday, October 19. Please read the accompanying letter which explains the details of this exciting event.
*Book reports are due for Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Little’s students. For Mrs. Payne’s students, the first book project is due Friday, October 14. The genre required is BIOGRAPHY and will be presented in front of the class. Students will receive specific details this week.
“Tween Author Boot Camp”, a writing conference for kids 9-12, will be held Saturday, October 29 at Dixie State University in St. George. This is optional, but if your child loves to write, this would be a wonderful camp to attend. Let us know if you are interested and we can give you the details.
Reflections Contest entries are due October 28.
Thanks for being such supportive parents! We’ll see you at SEPs.
Mrs. Payne, Mrs. Little, Mrs WIlliams
