It is so hard to believe that we are beginning the 5th week of school! Time is flying!

This week I will be completing initial reading assessments with the children during center rotations. These assessments will help me tailor reading instruction to the level of your child.

Orange Ruler Fun Run – The Fun Run will be held on Monday, October 16. Thank you to those who have gotten donations for our Orange Ruler Fun Run. Donations are due at 11:59 pm on October 10 to count towards prizes. There is still time to register your child and get donations. Currently, our class is in 5th place and has raised $819. The class goal set for us is $2123. All of the classes that meet their goal will receive a Kona Ice sno-cone treat. The PTH is using a portion of the fund that are raised towards a much needed playground.

Homework Calendars and Reading Logs – New homework calendars and reading logs were placed in your child’s folder yesterday. If you have not returned the signed reading log for September, please do so. Prizes are given for completed reading logs that are returned each month.

Lego Club – Lego club begins next Tuesday from 3-4 in the Kindergarten classroom. Mrs. Brumberg will hold Lego Club on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. There is no need to sign up or preregister. Your child may just show up on the days they are interested.

Picture Day Date Change – Picture day has been changed to Wednesday, October 11.



Greater Things – Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12
