I am out Wed-Friday this week and Thur-Friday next week. If you need something addressed quickly, please email Kara (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We had a class meeting this morning about homework. We will not be assigning the spiral homework for the rest of the year, however it is VITAL that they continue to read and practice those math facts. If they do not have a good handle on those math facts, 4th grade math is going to be a bear. We talked about how we will be sharpening those skills for the rest of the year. We are playing a lot of games with math facts, it is not fun if they don’t know them and it becomes pretty obvious who is practicing and who is not.
Please go ahead and order your child’s bare book. Please send that in as well as 5-7 pictures of your child throughout their life. We need these no later than next Monday (4/30).

(from Mrs. Mattingly)
Our field days are coming up soon! This year we will be doing it in two days.
3-5 grades will be on Monday, May 7 at 9:00-12:00.
K-2 grades will be on Tuesday, May 8 at 9:00-12:00.
This year we are asking for two volunteers from each classroom. Instead of using sign-up genius to sign up for time slots, I am going to have the classroom volunteers stay with their own class the entire day. They will meet me early that morning so I can go over each station and explain the rules. I will also send home a list of each station and instructions prior to that day so they can get familiar with the stations. 3rd-5th grade volunteers will need to meet me at 8:15 on Monday, May 8. K-2nd volunteers will need to meet me at 8:15 on Tuesday, May 9. We will meet down on the black top to go around to each station. The volunteers will then get with their own classes to begin the day.
Room moms, it is up to you if you want to be one of the volunteers, or maybe you just want to hang with your class without having a job. I just need the names of two dependable volunteers sent to me by May 2. Please email the names and email addresses to me at Kelly.email@example.com instead of sending them to your teacher.
Thank you so much for your help! We are very excited about this fun event!
**Let me know (Mrs. Vance) if you would like to volunteer and I will put your name down… first come first serve!**
