Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):Happy Friday to all of you on such a nice day. Let me start off by reminding everyone that tonight is our first movie night. The movie will start at 6:30, but the doors open at 5pm. This is a family night so you are requested to have parents with the kids at all time. The movie tonight is Hotel Transylvania. You are encouraged to wear a “school appropriate” costume if you like. For upcoming important dates, including days off, Market Day pick up, etc. go to our Calendar.
We sent home a letter to all parents about conferences coming up this week. We asked to have the letters come back today. Mrs. Krueger and I will go through the requests and make sure to accommodate everyone as best we can. For those who did not send a request back we will be showing you what is available in another letter next week. From there you can just come to what is open still. I have read all the side notes of people who have other conferences and we are aware of that. This is why we will work our best to make sure you are not being expected to come back at different times of the day, or separate days.
We have had a lot of neat stuff happen so far this year. Please check out the pictures on our pictures page. To go to my Flickr account directly too. The link is https://www.flickr.com/photos/bradsinger/.
At the end of the month we will be having conferences. Please make sure to help us teachers prepare for the conferences by completing the survey Mrs. Kreuger and I posted on our websites. Go to www.mrsinger.weebly.com at at the top of the homepage you will find the link. We also sent the survey out via the Remind101 text/app alert.
