Mid-Year Supply Needs  


As the school year rolls on, we find we are running out of a few supplies.  We need dry-erase markers, as our students use these every day and our supplies are dwindling.  Also, any snacks you might like to send in would be greatly appreciated.  In addition, i like to give my students incentives for good behavior in the form of small prizes.  As a result, I'm spending a lot of my own money on items from the Dollar Tree, such as markers, notebooks, puzzles, erasers, flash cards, books, and candy.  Any donations to our prize box would also be greatly appreciated!

Thanksgiving Update  

We have gotten a wonderful response to our Thanksgiving Dinner and expect to have plenty of GOOD FOOD!  I look forward to seeing all my students' families on Friday.  I know my students are excited about it, too.  Even if you don't have time to cook or shop, please come in and have dinner with us.  We have a lot to be thankful for, and look forward to sharing with you.

Hello, Parents!  I wold like to have a Thanksgiving Dinner for our class and their families on Friday, November 18th, at 11:00.  I will send home a list of items needed and if you can send anything in, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can avoid much duplication.  I will provide a turkey breast and squash casserole.  I would expect around 45 guests for this event, so our classroom will be quite full!  

I look forward to seeing all of you then.

Election Day  

Don't forget that there is no school on Tuesday, November 8th.  All schools in the district are closed on Election Day.  If you plan to vote, consider taking your student with you to see first-hand our democracy in action!

Recycling Program Up and Running  

The recycling progrm has been going for about a month, now, taking into account the time off for Hurricane Matthew.  It is going very smoothly, with pickups on Fridays.  The students with signed permission forms are rotating within the small group of participants.  Those who participate are learning work ethic, responsibility, and proper work behavior.  I'm so proud of this program and the participants in it!


Coming Soon: Recycling at Woodland High School!  

In recent years, our class has worked on collecting paper for recycling from participating classrooms at Woodland High School.  We will be starting the program again this year in the coming weeks.  I am very excited for this opportunity for my students to learn job skills that they will be able to transfer into their lives after high school.

I'll have more information about this program as it progresses.  Keep visiting our webpage for updates!
