First, Boosterthon is going strong. The kids were supposed to bring home Boosterthon information just before track out. This is our big fundraiser for the year, so please get pledges. The fun run will be on Friday, see Mr. Biles's email from Sunday for more information.
We have a lot of field trip things going on right now. We are collecting Washington, D.C. deposits right now. It is not necessary to know which parent is going along right now, but if you know one person is attending, please send in $60 for each person attending. We are also collecting for our IMAX trip that will take place in November. If you have misplaced the forms for either trip, please email me and I will send them to you. In your Tuesday folders tomorrow you will also find information on our in-class field trips. We will be taking 3 of them this year, all related to science. The total cost for all 3 will be $24 per person.
Also in Tuesday folders tomorrow you will find your child's fall picture. Retakes are Wednesday, so you will have to make decisions quick. If you want a retake, please send your pictures back to class with your child and they will be sent to get their picture taken some time in the morning.
Due to some conferences taking place this week, Friday morning math will begin next Friday instead of this Friday.
Thanks to everyone who signed up for and attended conferences last week. If you were unable to attend either day last week, please send me another email so I can get you scheduled soon. Unfortunately, with the huge amounts of email I got over track out, any emails that were sent before track out have been buried somewhere.
Report cards are supposed to go home Friday, barring any more set backs in the system. I am not totally sure what they are all going to look like. There is a letter that will be in the report card envelopes that explains the report card, please be sure to read this letter before analyzing your child's grades. Here is a blog from Wake County to help with understanding the report cards (http://www.wcpss.net/blog/2013/10/for-parents-understanding-your-elementary-school-students-new-report-card/).
Ok, I think that covers it for now! If anything else comes up this week I will pass it along. Have a great week!
