Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer): Happy National bike to work day. How many participated in this today?
I wanted to start out with one more final call for APTT feedback. We would like to hear from everyone and anyone who did or did not attend to help us to prepare for next year.
With our two events next week, I wanted to give some heads up on what is needed to know to be prepared for the field trip and the Fox River preview day.
Field Trip: We will be leaving around 8:45 on Wednesday. Chaperones are encouraged to come to school with your kid and stay in the classroom until we leave. We will have a “packet” for the chaperones with the schedules and list of names of who you are responsible for.
Lunches will be late so please make sure the kids get a healthy and full breakfast. We are not able to have food and drink in the exhibits, so we can’t have snacks during the morning. Speaking of lunch, please make sure to pack a lunch that the kids can finish at their lunch time. Make sure the lunches are put in bags that can be thrown out so we have less to bring home.
We will be back around 3:15.
Fox River Visit: We will be visiting in the morning only, but having lunch at Fox River. Make sure if the kids want hot lunch at the middle school, and most want to experience this, they NEED to have money in their lunch accounts because they will not accept cash. Otherwise, pack a cold lunch as normal and we will bring them along. We will be back by the end of lunch at Trailside where the kids will then enjoy an afternoon of play with the entire school.

For information on upcoming events, you can see our calendar page from our website too. Please take some time each week to go on Skyward and see how your child is doing in school. This will help us work better as a team to know where your child is at, and where we may need some help.
Check out what is going on in the classroom. We also post what is going on through the Twitter handle @MrSingerClass. If you do not have Twitter, don’t worry, you can see the thread on the homepage of the class website.
Do not forget to register on Class Dojo to keep up-to-date with notes from the teachers, the behavior of your child, and more. If you need me to print another flyer or send you an email invite, let me know.
BONUS: Each week we will put a challenge on here for any parent or student to try. All you have to do is give a response by Monday in the assignment notebook for us to see. If the answer is correct the student will receive $50 towards their checking account. Good Luck!
Share one thing you will be looking forward to doing as a family this summer.
