Team 234 families, I mistakenly took the back to school night date from the initial school year calendar and did not update my records when the date was changed. Back to Night is tomorrow night Wednesday September 14th at 6:30. I apologize any inconvenience my error may have caused.
First week is in the bag! You did a great job working on your math placement test, classroom rules, and getting to know you projects. Next week we are getting into academics. I have a couple of important notes:
1. If you have not sent in the green Camp Bournedale health form yet I need it ASAP. As a reminder the back of the form needs to be signed by a doctor to authorize medicines like Tylenol to be administered by the camp nurse. Alternatively, a parent can sign the form not authorizing medicines to be administered. The downside to option #2 is that if a child has a minor headache the only options will be to wait it out or have a parent drive to Bournedale.
2. Orchestra lessons start Monday! Bring your instruments.
3. Our summer reading test has been postponed until Thursday due to the religious holiday next week.
Welcome to Room 234! This blog is a way for you to stay connected to what your child is doing in my classroom. The blog contains useful information about what we’re learning, homework assignments, and dates of important upcoming events.
On the home page you will find a tab for my homework assignments and links to other 5th Grade blogs. This year students will be switching classes for Math and Language Arts. Please be sure to check out the other 5th Grade teachers blogs for updates on homework.
It is important for you to be informed about what is happening in school and have regular conversations with your child. Keeping you in the loop makes it much easier for us to work together and support your child. Although this blog is an important communication tool, it does not replace other old fashioned means of communication. I am always available by phone (781.270.1721) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I am also available before and after school for conferences.
I look forward to meeting each and every one of you in person and getting the school year started.
