Fort Wayne TinCaps Baseball Trip on Wednesday

Many of the students in our class earned this special privilege:  a trip to see a Fort Wayne TinCaps baseball game!  Please remember, not all students earned this trip:  just those who regularly returned their weekly reading logs this year.  Students going on the trip have already had a blue information paper go home a few weeks before break.  This trip is next week on Wednesday, and will be an all-day trip.  Only parents who have already signed up and paid for tickets are able to join us on this trip.  If you haven’t returned your student’s permission slip yet, please do so as soon as possible.  Students not going on the trip will have a day of activities at school.

Trimester 3 Mid-Terms Go Home Today

The students are bringing home their mid-term report cards today.  You may keep their report cards, but please sign and return the yellow envelope so I know you have seen their grades.

Spring Field Trip Coming May 5

We will be taking our Spring field trip on Friday, May 5 to the Healthworks Museum in South Bend.  This is an all-day trip.  We can take a limited number of chaperones.  Please let me know if you would like to go.  All parents attending the field trip must have a criminal background check, first.  Please let me know if you need a form for that.

Reading Logs Due on Fridays

Students are still responsible for reading each night and turning in their weekly reading logs on Friday.  This is their homework for the week.  Because several students have NOT been turning in their reading homework, students who do not turn in their reading log on Friday will lose their recess on Friday afternoon.  They will stay inside and read during that time.

All-About Books and Videos

We are finally done with out All About Books and videos.  We had a silent celebration today to share our books with the class.  The student-made videos are also now posted online at our class website and there is a link to their video as the last page of their book.  Make sure you check these videos out.

Enjoy Your Spring Break

Have a great Spring Break!  See you on April 10.   Also, please remember that we have no school on Good Friday, April 14.

Snacks for Class Needed

Thanks to everyone that donated snacks, but we could still use some more snacks for our class cupboard.  Animal crackers, cereal, pretzels, etc. make good snacks.  Feel free to send some in anytime.  Thanks!
