Permission Slips for Fieldtrip

Glad that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

Fieldtrip to Fleet Center
On Monday, December 12th we will have a field trip to the Ruben Space Fleet Center.  We received a grant  for the trip to watch an IMax movie about the Grand Canyon from the Ruben H. Fleet Center, and also a grant from Friends of Balboa Park for one of our buses.  This ties into our studies about water.

I will be looking for some chaperones who can help us keep and eye on the students on our trip.  If you are interested in helping, please make sure that you have your volunteer paperwork up to date in the office, and write down your telephone number and email on the permission slip so I can let you know if we can use you.  Our trip will be on Monday, December 12th, from 9:00-1:30.  Please sign the permission slip and send it back to school ASAP.

In our Shared Reading we have started a book called “One Crazy Summer,” by Rita Williams-Garcia.  This book is currently on sale for $1.00 in the Scholastic Book Club  I urge you to go online to order the book for your child.  It is a Newberry Honor Book and has received numerous other recognitions and accolades.

Scholastic Book Club
We have a very short window to order books before we go on winter break.  I am sending home the December and Holiday catalogs, but you are able to order from any of the available catalogs online.   Please place your order by Thursday, December 1st and I will close out the order so they can send us the books before our break.

In Pearson Realize students are working on their division skills and using partial products.  I notice some students are still having some trouble with their math facts.  Please keep practicing multiplication fact families so they can access those quickly and with accuracy.   Check your child’s homework and make sure they are doing the problems correctly.

Writer’s Workshop
Many students are working on publishing a story.  Please remind them to bring their USB drive to school so we can transfer the work to and from home.  Also remind your child to finish their illustrations, or typing in their stories online if that’s what they need to do.  Students should spend 30 minutes each evening on their Writer’s work.
