Well the week started on a very unexpected note and ended the same way! On Monday, I was asked to go the Middle School and help out Mrs. Weaver for the day. Its hard to say no to Mrs. Blake so off I went. Ms. Smith swooped in and saved the day, taking our class into her room for the day, simultaneously teaching both classes! The students - all of them - got a good report and had "Thank You" snacks on Tuesday. On Friday, I had my own situation I had to take care of and that meant picking up my own little ones at lunchtime and bringing them to school until the end of the day. We used the 45 minutes between lunch and Art at the end of the day to work on CSW projects. The students enjoyed taking turns playing with Avalyn and tickling Wyatt's toes! (So the mini-Maurers are to blame for me not getting this out on Friday.)
In other news, we were able to celebrate our 2nd place finish in Penny Wars from December with our kickball game with 2nd grade on Thursday. The students were intermingled with our class and lots of fun was had by all! 2nd grade finished Penny Wars in first place with -667 and we came in a close second with -964. Altogether, the entire school raised $1,261 - a remarkable number! All of these funds have been donated to the Missionary Childhood Association. AWESOME JOB!!!!
Progress Report envelopes will be coming home on Tuesday. Remember, if you are not able to view grades online, sign and return the white page. As of now, grades are updated and include a pop English Adjectives Quiz and a Spelling Test from 1/8/16.
Hopefully, you've heard about our schedule for this coming week from your child as I asked everyone to write the following down in their HW books before we went to Art on Friday afternoon.
Tuesday: Rdg - WLT: A Christmas at Sea
Math Ch 3 Test
Wednesday: SS - CE Due
English Unit 4 Test
Friday: Spelling Less 13
Sci Ch 6 Less 1-2 Quiz
$1 Dress Down Day on Friday to support keeping Yearbook costs down.
Yellow CSW Parent Lunch RSVP should be completed and returned as Mrs. Sheridan (MS Secretary) will need to start working on a seating arrangement ASAP. Seating for this event in similar to seating for a wedding reception. Also, Elementary students have permission slips to be returned as well for bus transportation to the MS for this event.
Have a wonderful week!
