Mrs.White's News & Notes

We are nearing the midpoint of the first trimester and some of the students really need to get moving on their AR reading. Some of their "cars" have not begun to move along Route 66. Please encourage your child to read books every night for AR. "Cars" that reach the Route 66 sign will earn a Frosty from Wendy's on their way to their 100% goal.

On October 7th, at 10:00 am, we will do a catapult woodworking project with Mr. Wendt. Please consider coming to help. Many hands make light the work!

Our field trip didn't quite work out as planned, but the kids were great and took it in stride. Hey, it's better than being in school, right?

Every night each student should spend at least 30 minutes reading a book of their choice.

New spelling or vocabulary words are given out every Monday or Tuesday. 

Social Studies homework is typically assigned three days a week and should take no longer than 30 minutes.
