Harvest Party

Just a heads up…We will have our Harvest Party on Wednesday, October 31st from 2:30-3:30. I sent an email with a sign up for our Harvest Party.  Thank you to those who have signed up.  I still need 2 games and a healthful treat.  Even if you aren’t able to sign up, feel free to drop in and see what fun things the kids are doing!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Thank you to those of you who have signed up for Parent/Teacher conferences.  If you haven’t signed up yet and can’t find a time that will work for you, please email me.  I look forward to meeting with each of you!

We have begun talking about Grit.  Grit is when individuals demonstrate passion and perseverance toward a goal despite being confronted by significant obstacles and distractions.  Students can reverse their thinking so they are able to reach their goals through hard work and a positive mindset.  My older daughters came to school and made a video of the kids while trying to tie in Grit and reversing a negative mindset.  I figured the kids would like to watch it again.  I think they had fun making it.  🙂

 

Volunteers
I am so grateful for each of you! I have changed Math centers to Monday, Wednesday and Thursday because of Math focus groups. I am still looking for more volunteers. If you are able to help with Math centers on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoon for 1 hour, that would be great. Even if it’s just once a month.
