Parent Teacher Conferences

I wanted to say thanks so much for coming to parent teacher conferences this past week.  I enjoyed getting to see all of you and discussing your children.  I appreciate all your support in giving your child the best education that we can.  If you ever have questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail, write a note, or call me at school.
I also wanted to give a special thanks to Eli Moore and his family for graciously donating the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid Hard Luck book to our classroom library.  The kids are so excited to have it to read.  Another big thank you to Jonathon Estle and his family for graciously donating the book Finding Zasha for our classroom library.  I might have to read both of these before I let the kids!
Thanks again!  Let's have a great second quarter!

Reading Incentive

Our fifth grade classes have completed a "Blizzard of Good Readers" reading incentive.  The students were asked to read at least 100 minutes a week for 5 weeks.  Each week we had a different reward for bringing back their reading log.  We had different things like: hot chocolate, fun winter themed computer games, jeopardy, and ice cream sundaes.  The class that read the most was able to watch a winter movie and have popcorn.  Students did a great job reading during this incentive.  I hope that the reading doesn't stop just because our incentive is over.  Look for more details coming soon about another spring incentive.  Thanks for your support.
