Spring Conferences are student-led this year! Your child will need to be in attendance, since they are "leading' the meeting :) Looking forward to seeing you at the end of March.

Science Vocabulary Quiz

On Tuesday we took a 21 question vocabulary quiz in science. The students have an ongoing vocabulary book they are responsible for "staying up on". On Monday, with new words to work on, they were informed of a vocabulary quiz that would happen on Tuesday. They are allowed to use their mini-vocabulary books, if they have completed them, on every quiz and test. It is obvious that the students who did not complete their work in their vocabulary books, did not score well on the quiz. There is a retake opportunity on Friday, January 30th. Any student scoring less than 16/21, which is below 80%, is expected to retake it. The grades will be in the gradebook by Thursday morning for you to see. If a student scores higher on Friday, I will happily replace that grade. Please encourage your son or daughter to keep up on their vocabulary words and to be ready for the retake quiz on Friday.

Start of Second Semester

This week was the first week of the second semester. I have been encouraging the kids to set new goals, work on getting homework turned in and create new study habits if their current ones aren't working. 

Report cards will be going home next week. We ask that you sign the envelope and just return that. We do not need the report card and summary reports back.

Next parent / teacher conferences are at the end of March. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email.

Secret Santa

Next week we will be exchanging our Secret Santa gifts on Thursday. It is important that the kids bring their gifts on Wednesday. This will help me see if students have forgotten to get a gift and I can hustle to do something for that classmate. There is a $5 limit. Please let me know as soon as you can if this is not something your child is able to do. We have already drawn names, but I will make sure that student receives a gift.  Happy Holidays!
