Field Trip to Joe Budd Youth Center

Good afternoon! Just a friendly reminder that we will leave promptly at 8:15 a.m. If you would like to follow the bus, you may do so. Please park in the front parking lot after 8:00 a.m. If your child is bringing his/her lunch, please remember to pack it. Please also put sunblock and/or bug spray on your child. Long pants and tennis shoes with a hat would be appropriate for tomorrow. We will have a sign out sheet for parents/grandparents who wish to sign the student out after the field trip. Please follow this procedure if you plan to sign a student out. The weather should be great tomorrow, and we look forward to having a great trip!

Fowler’s HR

We enjoyed our guest reader, Mayor George Trulock, last week during Read Across America week.

ELA-No new story this week. We are focusing on completing the stories for our class book. Ordering information was sent home yesterday. I encourage you to purchase a book for your student. It will be a professionally bound book with each student’s writing and illustration included. The kids are super excited about having their work published. We will start a new story, Nutik, the Wolf Pup, next week.

Math-Subtraction with regrouping. This is a skill that must be mastered. Ask your student to say the “Big Daddy” rhyme they learned to help them remember the steps.
