Classroom 2 9-5-13

What a great first week of the school year! We have a tremendous group of 5th graders this year with a wide variety of talents, interests, and strengths. They are already working together and showing collaboration and support for one another.

We spent the first four days of the 2013-2014 school year going over expectations, procedures, rules, and – basically – just getting the system going. With 34 students, it is important to make sure everyone knows how to get along and be successful. This coming week will see the true start of our daily schedules and curriculum.

Tuesday night is our school Open House. Please plan on joining us from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. It is a great chance to see the classroom, tour the school, and ask any questions you may have.Classroom 1 9-5-13

We have two field trips scheduled this fall: Dunbar Farm on Wednesday, September 25, and Crater Lake National Park on Tuesday, October 1. We’ll definitely need parent/guardian chaperones, so please consider getting your VIMS paperwork updated and coming along. The paperwork takes 2-3 weeks to process, so the sooner you turn it in to the office the better.
