Weekly News 11/20/15
Our first long holiday break is coming up next week! Schools will be closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving Break. We will have our Geography Test on Tuesday morning, and our Diversity Feast in the afternoon. Please feel free to send in your favorite snack or treat from your culture to share with the class!
We will also be starting our Multiplication timed tests on Monday and will continue right up until SOL testing. I encourage you to study flash cards at home to work on your speed and fluency. It's VERY important for students to know their facts quickly. Don't forget your November book reviews are due on December 1st as well!
I hope everyone has a fabulous Thanksgiving!
EAGLE Students of the Month
Every month, 2 or 3 students will be selected as one of the Students of the Month! Every student will have a chance to be picked, and choices will be made by Mrs. Sherman. They will have a picture taken with me which will be hung outside the classroom, and will receive a postcard in the mail from me as well.
Let's congratulate our STUDENTS OF THE MONTH!
Roi, Aeryanna and Jayden!!!
Michael, Jodie and Jose!!!
Book it! Reading Program
Your child will receive a NEW packet for the Pizza Hut Book it! Program. Included in the packet is a November calendar and 2 reading response forms. Students should be reading for 20 minutes each night and filling in their Reading Log. They may then color in the box on their monthly Book it! Calendar as well. Students MUST complete 2 reading response sheets for the month of November, and read at least 21 days out of the month to receive their free Personal Pan Pizza Coupon. Reading response forms are due (COMPLETED AND NEAT!) at the end of November. Students who read for the entire 6 months of the program (October - March) will receive a special prize from me! For more information about the Book it! Program please visit http://www.bookitprogram.com/
