As a reminder, Parent Teacher Conferences will be held in November.  I am excited to share your student's progress thus far, as well as the goals they have for continued progress.  (Remember we want your student present at conferences to share their achievements and goals.) 


This year's conferences will be held:


                                     Wednesday, November 20th      5:00pm-8:00pm

                                     Monday, November 25th    12:00pm-8:00pm

                                     Tuesday, November 26th 8:00am-11:00am


Please log in to ParentVue and choose CONFERENCE from the left hand menu to choose a day and time that works for you and your student(s).  (If you have more than one student you will have to select each student separately to choose a date a time for a conference.) Your response will be automatically submitted to the teacher, while at the same time marking that time slot filled. (The time slots visible when you login are the only time slots currently available.) If you need to change the time of your conference, log back in to ParentVue, choose CONFERENCE, unselect your current time which will then allow you to choose a new time.


If you would like to have an encore (Art, LMC, Music, PE or STEM), speech, reading teacher, or social worker included in your conference, please contact your child's homeroom teacher so she can make arrangements for that individual to be present.  

Please contact your teacher or the main office if you have any questions or concerns.

Teacher Note

We had so much fun during our Halloween party. Thank you so much to those that volunteered their time for our crafts and games. 



We took the Chapter 2 math test this morning and we have a good grasp of multiplication.  Our next chapter will be covering division. We will be using the traditional, long-division method. 


Language Arts

The class is working on narrative writing. We studied a plot line. We are focused on the rising action, climax, and resolution. Your child will be typing the story on a Google Doc and then will piece it together in a small bound book. These should be wonderful to read. Also, we finished reading Winn Dixie. Most kids found a connection with the character, India Opal. 



Do you know what a rock is? The class will be focusing on this question with an investigation on a mock rock next week. Also, your child is welcome to bring in their personal rock collections for the class to observe.
