Ready or Not! Here We Come Second Quarter!

As we finish first quarter, all I can say is Whewwww!!!! We have been busy, busy, busy! We have completed our first quarter and report cards will be coming out this next week! Please remember our Book Order Deadline is this coming Thursday, Oct. 28th.
Conferences will be November 2nd and November 4th from 4:00-7:30. Please note the earlier starting time this year. Signing up for conferences can be done online this year. Please remember to sign up for your conference or call Connie Miller at school (472-2110) to sign up. Please go to Fairfield School's Website and click on the Parent/Teacher Conferences Link.
We will be doing Student-Led Conferences first quarter and you will be receiving a letter from me on Monday. The students will be preparing for their conference next week and I hope that each student will be present with their parent on one of these nights to share their school experience.
Now that second quarter has started, please start looking for student written blog posts. It is my hope that students can improve their writing skills by writing for a specific audience, their parents!
We have begun our Fall Reading Incentive, Reading Saves The Day. Students should continue to do their Reading Log and bring it back on Monday. They will receive a prize each week with a culminating prize of going to Jefferson County Park for Lunch and Games as well as getting to watch the movie, "The Incredibles". As always, it is important for your child to read at home each night. They hear me say it everyday so I thought I would add it to my blog post today!
For the most part, students are doing a great job of returning homework to school. I do have a few that I will continue to work on this responsibility trait with every week. As parents, let's help get them off on the right foot. They might need a little push from home to help them start doing it on their own!
Students that have 5 or less missing signatures in their Assignment Journal will be enjoying Dinner/Movie next week with Mrs. Hanshaw and Mrs. Kurth. Every quarter, the fourth graders will be rewarded for having their assignment journal signed everyday.
Ready or Not! Here We Come Second Quarter!
I took our pictures from our September field trip and put them into a web 2.0 tool called Photopeach. Try it out for a neat way to show your pictures and to share with others. These same pictures can be found off to the right in a Picasa photo album.
