    Happy Friday Families!

    Hope you are staying warm on this chilly Friday. Here's what I've got for next week:


    • Thursday, January 17, Interim Reports will be going home. However, your child is able to check their grades daily so you should be able to login and see if any assignments are missing. Missing assignments needs to be turned in ASAP. 
    • I'm running low on community snacks. Requested snack items are: chips, cheeze-its, and fruit roll ups. If you can send any of these things in, that would be awesome :) 
    • We use ear buds in class frequently and many students do not have any. They were on the supply list and each student needs to have them at school everyday. Please be sure your student is equipped with ear buds every day. If you are feeling generous and would like to donate some to our class, we would be extremely grateful! 
    Homework next week: THERE ARE CHANGES::
    • 3 Spelling activities (MUST BE COMPLETED IN ONE NOTE)

      • A synonym and antonym for the vocabulary word
      • A picture that demonstrates the word
    • Any unfinished classwork from the week
    • Please note that I DO NOT accept late homework.

    Happy Friday Families! 

    I hope you had a great first week of 2019! I was very impressed with the way students were able to get back into the swing of things. We have had a great week! 


    Here is some information for next week:


    • Tuesday, January 8th, at 10:00 am, we will be taking our First Quarter ELA Benchmark. It is IMPERATIVE that your student is here at school that day to take the benchmark and that their laptop is fully charged. Otherwise, THEY WILL MISS CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION TO MAKE UP THE BENCHMARK
    • You may have heard, but our school has been assigned an SRO officer. This officer will be shared with Jacksonville Commons Elementary, but don't be alarmed if you see a patrol car out front of the school building. Officer Zulkeski is here to provide extra safety and security, and to help improve student learning, student attendance and the overall quality of the educational program while fostering a positive school-police image in the minds of youth. His office is located right across from our classroom.
