Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer): Happy November everyone! It looks like the weather has finally arrived...
I just want to give a big thank you to everyone who showed up last week to conferences. We had 98% of our 6th grade and advanced mathematics families attend conferences! It was nice getting some time to talk to all of you and share in the progress everyone has been making to this point. Please remember to keep open conversation going this year. Send me notes in the assignment notebooks, email, etc.
Speaking of assignment notebooks, the end of the trimester is the last day of this month. After the first trimester we do not require the notebooks to be checked. The only people who will have to have it checked will be anyone who is not ready to be independent at that point. HOWEVER, if you have notes you want to send to me in the assignment notebook please continue to do so after November 30. The students are still expected to fill out the notebooks and we will take time to do so each day. We are just not checking the signatures anymore.
For upcoming important dates, including days off, PTO events, etc. go to our Calendar. There will be a movie night next Friday at Trailside. Doors open at 6pm.
Make sure you are staying connected with our Remind alert system and following the class on Twitter. Find both feeds shown on our website, www.mrsinger.weebly.com. If you are not signed up on either you can do so on the website. Contact me if you have any questions on doing this. I have also added pictures to our pictures page too.
Remember to check the assignment notebook board daily for homework updates.
BONUS: On Monday include a note for a reward in the assignment notebook, or email me. What is the ONLY word in the English language that starts and ends with “und?” I look forward to seeing how many respond.
