We are in the home stretch of the holiday season and the children are full of excitement. Thank you for being informed and attentive parents as there is much to remember during these last two weeks.
This week is our last spelling test before Christmas vacation. We were very close to 100% spelling last week. Keep studying with your child every night and I know we can get there this week!
Mrs. Tseng and I have noticed that quite a few students are receiving repeats for fluency. At this point in the year, we are pushing students to read smoother. They have learned the words and are reading for comprehension. The next step is smooth and emotive reading. If your child receives a repeat and has answered all of the questions correctly, it is due to fluency. Let your child know that this is not a bad thing, they are ready to be pushed to the next level!
There are still several report cards that have not been returned. Please sign and return your child’s report card in the envelope immediately as I will need them for second trimester grades.
We would love for all the children to wear a Santa hat as we carol at Bethesda next week. Please send a hat labeled with your child’s name by this Friday so we can begin practicing in them.
SECRET SANTA GIFTS:
All gifts should be sent in wrapped and labeled with the recipient’s name only by Monday, December 18.
Thank you for your continued support and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
