Free Choice Area (By Quentin): There are some kids that go to the middle school for math. We had a test today, so that meant no homework. So we had a study hall of reading. I am tutoring a kid in 3rd grade and it is going well.
Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer): Conferences are just around the corner and we are ALMOST done planning the schedule for the two days. I am only waiting on one student to return their form, and two others to change the times that were already taken. Please plan to show up about 5 minutes early to your time. If the conference prior to yours seems to be going a little long just knock (it is probably long because I talk a lot). We have a lot of students this year and a lot of conferences that are back-to-back. If we need to plan more time later we can do that. Be ready as well to have the students present what they have done this year too. They will be working hard with Mrs. Muench this week developed portfolios and goals with the kids that they will be sharing with you at conferences. Conferences are Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon and evening.
I have begun to develop our pictures page on our website. Please check it out to see what we are doing this year. Right now there are a few pictures from a lab outside and our No Bullying Presentation.
