Make sure to check the announcements scrolling at the top of the page for important dates, as well as the dates listed under my picture. 
I have had several questions about the speech draft that is due this Tuesday. Your child needs to write what they have so far for their speech, in paragraph form, on a sheet of notebook paper. I will check them to see what they have so far and to give them feedback on what they need to fix. They will get a grade on this. However, it does not need to be perfect. I simply want to see that they have attempted to research their person and put the information in order. They have been given outlines to help them gather information and write their draft. They do not dress up on Tuesday! Only on the 31st when they do their speech in front of the class.
On the 31st, we will also be having a Fall Party. Your child was given a paper asking to bring in one item. We will be watching movies and having snacks after their speeches are finished.
The Chili Supper and Silent Auction is on Thursday, November 2nd. 5th grade classes are collecting gift cards for our baskets. Any donations or gift cards are appreciated! You can start sending them in now, in an envelope with "Silent Auction" written on it.
Finally, my classes have been given the opportunity to use Cloudbooks. They are devices similar to a laptop. We will be using these frequently in our lessons and the kids are very excited! I have asked all of them to bring a cheap pair of earbuds or headphones to use to watch videos. They will keep these in their pencil pouches or lockers. I am  asking that they do not bring in expensive headphones or headphones that are wireless. Please let me know if you cannot supply these. I have some extras.

Thank you and have a great weekend!

Hello parents! 
      I hope you all had a great Fall Break! I was very surprised at how well the kids did today, coming back and getting right to work! October is an extremely busy month for us.
     Just some reminders: please make sure your child is working on their information for their speech at home. They will have some time to work on this at school, but the majority of the research needs to be done at home. All of the information for the costume speech project can be found by clicking on the link under my picture on my home page. 
     Report Cards will go home Thursday, please sign and return them. Parent/Teacher Conferences will be October 17th. You will get a note with your child's report card if a conference is recommended.  
     I gave out order forms for the new Scholastic Book Order. If your child would like to make an order, it is due October 24th :)
    *** Our class raised $1,471.00 during our fall fundraiser. The school raised a total of $46,367.00!! Great job and thanks to everyone who participated***
