Thank you so much to all the parents who responded to my request for class supplies and snacks! We received plenty of snacks for those who forget and highlight markers and dry erase marker and index cards. Thank you all so very much!!!!
On Monday, your child will bring home information to log into 2 new exciting websites! The first one is Zearn which is a math site to practice at home. The children used it in class on Thursday. The second one is Clever which will allow students access at home to many of the links we use at school such as EPIC, Pebblego, Britannica Encyclopedia for Kids and World Almanac for Kids along with access to Brianpopjr. and Raz-Kids. Enjoy!!!
Mrs. LeClair, our librarian, asked that we share the following exciting information about the “Go Nuts for Reading” program:
The Richmond Flying Squirrels are pleased to announce that the Flying Squirrels Reading Program, “Go Nuts for Reading!” is back for its tenth season! This year’s program, which will run through Wednesday, March 20th 2019, is open to all CTES to participate! After reading 8 books and signing your child’s bookmark, your child will receive a FREE baseball voucher to the 6:35 pm April 18th baseball game. It will be a fun-filled night, beginning with a school parade around the diamond and ending with (fingers crossed) a win for our Flying Squirrels!! Look for more information in the Cub Chronicle and lets “play ball!”
Students will also bring home a permission slip for the performance at the Multicultural Museum Night on Thursday, February 21st. It will include the following:
- Children need to wear their class field trip t-shirt, blue jeans, and tennis shoes.
- Parent drop off in the hallway by the cafeteria between 6:00 and 6:10 p.m. (Mrs. Hartman will stand in the hall to guide parents to the gym and students to their classroom.)
- Parents keep the children’s coats because students will not be returning to their classroom after they preform.
- Parents will pick their children up in the gym after the students perform.
