Dear Warrior Parents,

Please turn in the lunch forms even if you do not intend to have your child eat the school lunch. The forms are a very improtant part of the funding for the school.

We are going to the Field Museum on Wednesday. Please pack a large lunch for your child.  It is reccomended that it be put inot a disposable bag so that we do not lose any lunch pails on the trip.

We need snacks.  Please consider buying something healthy for the whole group the next time you are at the market.

Students need water bottles for their desks. as the weather gets cold we are experiencing very dry air in the school and we get very thirsty.  It is difficult to get out to the fountain without disrupting lessons.

Be aware that we are asking students read every day at home even on weekends and over holidays.  Please try to keep up with the reading contracts so students can receive the pizza incentive each month( 4 contracts a month arerequired)

Wierd Whacky Week!

Wednesday is Parent Conference day (no school for students.)  Students are welcome to attend the conferences.  Conferences last only 10 minutes, so please come prepared with any questions you have.  If you require additional time you will be asked to set a separatee meeting time.  You are invited to email us with a few convenient times (noon to 550pm)

This week students will begin the Native American Research projects.  They are encouraged to read about or watch videos on Native American people of long ago.  Because of the unusual week and the emphasis on research there will not be a writing application due this week.

Math home assignemnets will be as usual.

Math pages Mon, and Tues only
