I am super proud of our kids! They are really doing a great job at our morning routine, as well as turning in their weekly homework. They are such a great group of kids! Below is some notes for the week –
Grading – As you may have noticed, graded work is coming home in Tuesday folders. I really do my best to get grades turned back to you in a decent amount of time. I spent most weekends grading away! I did want to point out that I always put the grade your child earned on an item – like if they received a 20%, but I wanted to be clear, per HCPS policy I can only record in my gradebook a 50% or higher. I am just putting the real grade so you can see how your child did. If anything is unclear, please let me know.
Gifted Meeting – October 4th from 6:00 – 7:00 in the Cafeteria if you are interested
Coach LeClair our PE Teacher – asked me to send you the following –
CTES Families, The Short Pump Mile is September 30th! Last year our school had amazing participation and we were able to get money for our PE department! The more students sign up for the race, the more money we can get toward new equipment. The run is completely optional of course. It is a great opportunity to get some great exercise and have some fun! Online registration closes Thursday, 9/27 at 8AM and then you’ll have to register at the packet pickup on Friday, 9/28 from 4PM-8PM or Saturday 9/29 from 10AM-4PM.
Thanks so much to all of those who have registered, we are in the top 10 in schools registering so far!! Hopefully you are able to make it out to the fun run!
