Post-Open School Night Update!
If you couldn't make it in to tonight's open school event, please don't fret: I will send home a folder with all the pertinent information with your child tomorrow. However, as those who came tonight could tell you, that's a big task! With a 30-minute time limit it was a sprint to deliver as much information, in the most boring format (lecture) available, as possible. For those who were there, please rest assured that I wouldn't dream of subjecting your children to such a dreary presentation. We have lots more fun when you're not there! :)
In all seriousness, I do appreciate the time you all put in with your children. Whether or not you were able to make it tonight, never underestimate the influence you have on your children's future success. Working as a team, we can help our students reach above and beyond what they can do alone.
I would also like to add a couple of things that we didn't have time to address tonight:
1) Time for Kids money. I have received $5 from almost everyone for our subscription to Time for Kids. If you haven't had a chance to do that yet, please try and get that in by Friday. This will be a great resource for many areas of the classroom, especially during our Daily 5!
2) Volunteering. I would love to have parents who have the time to volunteer come in and help us, but at this point I want to get us settled in to a rhythm while I figure out exactly what our needs are. Keep your eyes out for an interest/sign-up poll sometime in late October or early November.
That's it for now, keep checking back here, there will be new information and new areas opening up all the time!
