Super Pledge Update

We only have 7 envelopes left to return! If you haven’t returned yours yet, please try to get it in. Thank you for everyone who has returned their envelopes and all who have donated to make this place the amazing school that families want to be at! We get a popsicle party when we get 80% of our envelopes in. No donation is necessary!

  • Lost your envelope?? – you can get a new one in the office, just make sure you mark your child’s name on it.
  • Have another sibling at this school? – You can return both envelopes for each child so they each get a pair of laces and help their classes get to 100% return!

Mrs. Taber’s Science Experiment

Our amazing Mrs. Taber came while I was at STEAM training! She will be back for my marathon! This amazing teacher brought in her own science experiment for the kids on Capillary Action!! Check it out below! She’s an awesome teacher and loved the class! She’ll be back at the end of the month!

Sight Words

Keep on playing and practicing with those sight words. We have been retesting in reading and are able to see the big improvements made by sight word practice and knowledge. We have been testing on RED Words and many kids know all their red words. Many kids only have 1-2 left to learn. When a child fluently names all 10 RED words, they get to color in their RED rectangle!

We will test ORANGE words at the of the month!  YELLOW words will be sent home at the beginning of November. The kids love playing My Pile, Your Pile to practice the words and for you to identify the words your child still needs some automaticity on.

Log In Practice

We will be logging in to the Computer Lab on Monday and Tuesday. We have a handful of students who are able to successfully log in independently!! They are all doing awesome! If you are able to practice logging in today 1-2 times, please do so to help your student become independent! Guide with your words and let them do as much of the work as possible…just as they will be doing at school! They impress me so much!

STEAM

Look what arrived today!! These are the STEAM materials that we were told we would receive from our training to begin teaching the units. So excited! The students will love this! It was so engaging!
