We are in week 7 of the first quarter! Here are your updates:
As part of the Personalized Learning team at Lenart, I am in the pilot group to implement the program within our school. Alongside with other teachers in the building, we have been participating in a year-long cohort that requires us to be out of the building for meetings/school visits. I am excited to bring back what we've learned in cohort to Lenart and be one of the classrooms starting this project. I will be out of the building tomorrow Tuesday, October 16th. Students were given their homework for today and tomorrow that is due when I return today.
Picture Day - October 26th
Picture day is next Friday, October 26th. Picture day forms were passed out yesterday. You can also order online at www.my.lifetouch.com. Our School Picture Day ID is RN068106Q0.
Student Sickness :(
Please be aware that we have had several students out due to being sick in the last 2 weeks. I have tried my best to wipe all tabletops down and any other areas in the classroom where the virus can be easily spread. It seems that whatever bug has been going around through our classroom has *hopefully* passed!
LPCG (Lenart's Parent Community Group) will be hosting its annual OktoberFest on Friday, October 26th from 5:30-7:30. Flyers with more information were sent home yesterday.
Autumn Themed Party - October 31st
In previous years, I have thrown a Halloween themed/Autumn themed party on October 31st. In respect to those in our classroom who do not celebrate Halloween, I am leaning towards having an Autumn themed party where students will make "fall season" crafts/games. I will need volunteers to help with this: coordinate and run 3-5 stations of crafts/activities. If you are interested in helping, please let me know and we can start planning :).
First grade is currently in 2nd place (grrrrr.. behind Ms. Flaherty's kindergarteners) for raising funds for the Walk-A-Thon. This Friday, October 19th will be the last day to turn in any Walk-A-Thon money.
If you have not already, please pay your school fees here.
