Newsletter 11/19- 11/26

Here is some important information for the next few weeks:

Battle of the Books Read-a-thon: On Monday, December 16th, the students have a chance to join Mr. Oldroyd in the gym for a Read-a-thon! In order to qualify for the Read-a-thon, the students must complete 2 book reports focusing on 2 battle books for their grade level. Several weeks ago, I sent home the 3rd grade list that highlights 4-5 books for your student to focus on.  They are welcome to read more than that if they wish. Today, I am sending home two samples of book report outlines that the students may use for their books.

Reading Volunteers: Thank you to our reading volunteers! They are accomplishing great things with our students! We will not have volunteers come in next week because of the holiday. We will cancel volunteers that last week before Christmas vacation also.

Harvest Holiday: We will not be holding school next Wed., Thurs., or Fri. for our Thanksgiving break. We'll see the students back on Monday, December 2nd.

Spelling: No spelling list for next week.

Times Tables: Keep up the great work on times tables. We will continue passing the children off throughout the next several weeks.

Our Thanksgiving Party will be held next Tuesday, November 26th at 2:30 p.m. The following people have signed up for refreshments on that day. If you aren't able to bring your item, please just let me know and we'll work it out. Thank You!!
