Week 12

Another busy week is coming our way.  Please remember that this our conference week and the students have half days on Wednesday and Thursday.  The conference sign up is still available if you need to make a change.  I am looking forward to meeting with everyone soon.  You should sign up to meet with me for a 20 minute conference.  If your child goes to another classroom for math, please sign up with that teacher for a 10 minute conference.

Report cards will come home with your child on Monday.  The envelopes should be returned to school, however, you may keep everything that is inside.

I have picked up the germs floating around school and my own kiddos.  Mrs. Averill will be a guest teacher in our classroom on Monday.  I am hoping another day on antibiotics will help me to get my voice back and feeling more like myself.

Next Monday we are heading to the Nature Center in Bloomfield Hills.  A permission slip came home on Monday and should be returned on Wednesday.  I need 4 chaperones to join us on Monday afternoon.  We will leave at 12:00 and be back by 3:00.
