Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer and Mrs. Topp): We only have 4 weeks left of school after today! Wow, where did the time go? Like we stated in the last email there is a lot of planned events coming up. Please make sure to keep up-to-date with all the items coming up. Below are the important dates to remember.
Please go to Skyward and click on the individual grades if there is a question about low grades because of missing assignments or low scores. We know that our sixth graders will end the school year on a successful note!
It’s almost auction time and we are looking for donations for our biannual classroom auction. Students have been earning money for being positive and taking responsibility for their learning.
If you are interested in helping make the event a success, we are in need of your help. We have received a decent amount of items from donors thus far, but we are still in need of a few items for the upcoming auction.
If you have any of the following items that would be of interest to sixth graders we would be glad to take them:
- Rummage sale items
- Used books
- Baked goods
- Business donations
- Gift cards
Please send your donations with your child to his/her homeroom teacher by Wednesday, June, 6th (unless you are sending baked goods, those can be send on the morning of the auction. Our auction will be held on the morning of June 7th.
In addition to checking your child’s grades on Skyward, please also periodically (at least once a week) check your child’s assignment book. The assignment book is a helpful tool to see what students are doing in class and checking if there are notes for upcoming events or messages from us.
We have scheduled a field trip to the Discovery Museum on May 23rd. Please remember the kids will need a bag lunch for this event. Make sure the lunch is in a labeled bag and we prefer it is a bag that can be tossed when they are done.
