The students did a wonderful job on Math and Reading TAKS. They showed up every day, gave 110% and I feel confident that their hard work will pay off! We are a week away from Science TAKS and I have no doubt that the students will do as well if not better than they have ever before. The students are working hard, impressing me with their knowledge and I look forward to sharing their pride and happiness in the next month or so!!
4/5/2010: Reminder that students will have their MATH and READING TAKS Tuesday and Wednesday this week!! Please be sure they get plenty of sleep and they are on time to school for those days!! NO EARLY RELEASES!!
11/17:Reminder that book orders are due Friday Nov 20!! Picture retakes are Thursday Nov 19. Vocabulary Quiz on Friday Nov 20.
I will be out of class Nov 23-24. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Enjoy the 3 day break!!
10/28: New book orders were sent home today. Any orders online (NOV catalogs only) will earn the class a free book for each online order. ALL orders are due NOV 20 to ensure we get the books before our Winter Holiday Break.
10/19: We just picked up some vegetables and seedlings for a class garden. We will have students assist in getting the soil ready, create garden layouts for consideration, planting our vegetables, daily watering, weekly weed upkeep. I am very excited to begin our garden so that we can all enjoy a class salad once our vegetables are grown and ready for the picking.
9/1: We will begin a recycling program as our fundraiser to assist us with our field trips this year. We will be recycling HEB plastic bags (HEB Bags ONLY). Students are encouraged to speak with extended family and friends to gather plastic bags and bring them to their teacher for collection. This begins Monday Aug. 31 and will run until Friday Dec. 11. Thank you in advance for all of your support!!!
We are also collecting Box Tops for the school, all grade levels. We also have some items for the classroom that are available for donation as well. I have included a link to the box tops website.
