I have been having difficulty with my school email address. I can receive and read your messages to the SJS address just fine, but my outgoing replies get trapped in my outbox and never leave! All of my responses will come from this email address. (In the meantime, if you have IT expertise and can help with this problem, please contact me.)
This week we've spent more time having political talks. I told the class we are organizing and planning a school election on our national election day, November 8th. Today, the class made "VOTE!" posters which we hung up around the school. When you are here for your conference, look for a few. The posters are on every floor. I hope they encourage the adults to vote as well!
Throughout the month of October, we are collecting boxes in preparation for a November Thanksgiving food collection. Paper ream size boxes are ideal, but we can make due with similar sizes. These can be sent in to our classroom all through October. These are ok to bring in during parent conferences tomorrow.
Please remember that parent/teacher conferences are 15 minutes and be mindful of those scheduled before/after you.
We will be doing a project with pumpkins next week. Each student will need a pumpkin approximately the size of a soccer ball. Please send in this pumpkin with your child Monday, October 24 or Tuesday, October 25. We will complete the project October 26 and 27 and they will come home Friday, October 28th. PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM INTO SCHOOL EARLIER THAN 10/24. Pumpkins do not like heated, warm buildings and WILL get mushy and smelly.
