THIRD AND FOURTH WEEKLY NEWS
Tuesday, February 21, 2017
DAVID’S STAR STUDENT WEEK:
What a wonderful time we had getting to know David better! His family picture collage was beautiful; it included pictures of himself as a baby and family’s travels. David comes from a large, close-knit family. He played the guitar while we sang “Jesus loves me.” He treated the class to lunch on Wednesday from Panda Express and his favorite dish, walnut prawns. On Friday, his parents treated the class to his favorite breakfast or dessert, whichever David decides… Chocolate chip waffles, with fresh strawberries, and whip cream! Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Monasterial for your generosity!
No weekly evaluation sheet will be sent home due to report cards coming home on Friday; however, I will be recording homework assignments. Can you believe it is almost time for the “No Lates” students to go to Burger King for February shortly?
..will be coming home on Friday. If you have any questions regarding my comments or are wondering about any grades, I encourage you to contact me. As you receive weekly evaluation sheets, grades on the report card should not be a surprise. Please remember that I am available for conference at any time you feel a need.
The MCP assignments are becoming increasingly more difficult with multiple directions as it should as the school year progresses. Encourage your child to read directions carefully, reread them if necessary, and HIGHLIGHT the different directions as they are being taught to do. I subscribe to several teaching online websites and download worksheets to help supplement grammar rules and our Language Arts program.
CLASS FIELDTRIP ~ HAYWARD SHORELINES:
We are scheduled to visit Hayward Shoreline on Friday, March 10, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. We will need drivers to help transport students. If you have flex time at work, please use it. A permission slip will be coming home next week. In these changing times, it is more important than ever to empower our children with knowledge of interdependent eco-systems and how to co-exist without extinction of fragile life.
Last week, students were given extra time during class to get more reading done. I was delighted to hear one of my student’s share that she was taking her book report folder home over the weekend because she loves to read; that’s what teaching is all about!
PARENTS’ CLUB MEETING:
It’s that time again… I would like my students to give our class report, please let me know if you plan on attending the March 3rd meeting.
I appreciate all the support that you have given to Mrs. Gerard and me. Here’s to having a blessed week!
