Dear Families,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I look forward to meeting with you and your child on Thursday, December 13th for Parent Teacher conferences. Please make sure you sign up for an available time slot so that we can discuss your child's progress.

This month, we are starting each week with a Monday morning prayer service to celebrate our season of Advent. Please remember that Thursday and Friday are half-days for students!

Please remember to check Mrs. William's class page on a weekly basis to stay up-to-date on what's happening in Math, Science, and Religion. You can visit her page by clicking here: Mrs. Williams

Also, please make sure to send a note if there is a change in your child's usual dismissal. Also, students should bring a small, healthy snack and a bottle of water to school. Thank you!

This week, students will begin reading Dear Mr. Winston in Lesson 9 of Journeys. Students will work on making inferences within the text, while supporting their thinking with text evidence. Please remember that your child should be reading about 20 minutes per day! Reading Responses are due on Friday.

This week, we will continue our in-class review of parts of speech in preparation for our test on Wednesday. I will offer extra help on Wednesday morning at 7:30am. The parts of speech test will include nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, and adverbs. 
There will be new spelling words this week with a spelling quiz on Friday.
