April 16th-20th
Hello, parents! I hope you had a great weekend!
 
Jupiter Ed
Hello, parents! Progress Reports were sent home Friday. For updated grades, be sure you're checking grades online weekly. I generally update the site every week or two.  Please don't worry if you see some C's or N's.  It is important that you realize that some skills we will be working on ALL year. If they did poorly on a test or quiz, it's okay. I will be intervening and we will revisit the same skills again and  ALL year.  This is mostly for Language Arts Skills and Math. They haven't mastered all skills YET!
 
 

 
WE NEED YOU!

ROAR Store Volunteers Needed!

A big part of the success of our PBIS program is our ROAR cards and our kids being able to “cash them in” at the ROAR store on Fridays during lunch.  We rely on our parent volunteers to run that store and make it all possible.  We don’t need an every Friday commitment, just sign up for any Fridays that you’re free from about 11:30-1:15.  

Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:

1. Click this link to go to our invitation page on SignUp.com:http://signup.com/go/5hGnu7

2. Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account on SignUp.com)

3. Sign up! Choose your spots - SignUp.com will send you an automated confirmation and reminders.

Note: SignUp.com does not share your email address with anyone.

Daily Reminders:

Please be sure to check your child's homework folder and planners daily for what they need to do for homework and notes. Don't forget to sign their planners daily. Also please check this website weekly for updates.
 
 Birthday Treats: Please let me know ahead of time if you are sending birthday treats in to school so I can plan ahead of time for time to distribute.  An idea would to be to bring non-food goodie bags in place of food item. **Please note that we do have nut allergies in our classroom.**
