Dear Parents Thank you all so much for signing up for conferences. I am eager to meet with each of you to discuss your child’s progress so far, and answer any questions you may have. Reading 3D and MAPs assessments are all done!!! Please attend the October 18th meeting listed on the calendar below to learn more about these scores and what they mean. We can discuss them in more detail during conferences.
*** Learning Lab begins this week. It is from 8:30-9:10 Monday-Thursday. It is an important part of our day when the students are rotating in small groups doing Literacy activities and reading with the teacher on their reading level.
***School Volunteers Would you like to volunteer in our class or at Selwyn in general? Please go to the volunteer website to register. You must complete this PRIOR to volunteering and the turnaround time is about 48 hours. Room parents will fill you in on how to volunteer for special area classes and mystery reader at Open House. Mystery Reader will be on Fridays from 1:30-2:00. Any registered volunteer can come read to the class during this time. Shhhh…the students won’t know who is coming, that’s why we call it mystery reader.
***Spot’s Sound Challenge has officially begun. Please review the sheet that came home yesterday as much as possible at home. This is a great way for your child to practice their letters and sounds. We will also be practicing this at school.
***Our first Character Education Assembly was Friday September 28th. Each month two or three students are recognized for demonstrating a specific character trait. Your child will receive a certificate recognizing them for a character trait prior to the assembly. The time and date of the assembly in which they will be recognized will be on the certificate. The certificates are sent home each month. NO students will be recognized at the Character Ed Assembly on September 28th. This is our assembly when the Myers Park Band comes to play for the students. The students chosen for the September and October character traits will be recognized at the October Character Ed Assembly on October 26th.
