It was wonderful to see all of you at our fall Parent/Teacher Conferences. It's hard to believe the first quarter is over and Thanksgiving is just around the corner! We do not have school the Wednesday before Thanksgiving (11-23). Teachers have a day of professional training. School does not dismiss early on the 22nd.
We have a field trip to Jefferson County Park Monday Nov. 14 from 9:30 - 2:30. Your child will need a cold lunch and a drink. We will be spending most of our time outside, so please make sure your child is dressed warmly. Therese always has a wealth of information for us to learn out in the park. We look forward to her expertise and ability to teach us new insights about nature.
Please continue to help your child learn the basic multiplication math facts. We will be working on those and then moving into harder multiplication. I'll be sending home flashcards that might help. Also, we're working on the Northeast region of the United States in social studies. Your child will need to know the states and capitals of our Northeast. Please practice these facts at home as well.
Thanks always for your support and help on the home front. It helps your child's success in the classroom tremendously!
