Weekly Overview October 20 to 24

The 28th we will walk to the U of C to see a movie titled “Worms”. If you are a parent that is available to chaperone please let us know right away. We also need chaperones for the 31st trip to the Children’s farm.

Please donate Clorox Wipes to help our efforts to limit the spread of germs in the classroom.

As the weather becomes more unpredictable, please consider dressing your child in layers. We will try to go out of doors as much as possible. Remember if your child is not well enough to participate in the mid day recess they should not be sent to school. There is no one to monitor kids separately from the whole group at lunch.

Language Arts:  We will have a test on Lesson 6 on Friday.  I will allow your kids to take their book home this week-to practice-but the books have to come back to school every day!  We use them every day!  Let’s see how this goes.  Thanks.

Math:  We will have a math test this Thursday on Unit 2.  The homework assignments are a good study guide.  Thanks.
