Ms. Genie's Class Newsletter
August 31, 2017
What a whirlwind! The past two weeks have been filled with teambuilding, learning class procedures, an introduction to second and third grade math, and some initial assessments.
Tomorrow will be a busy day with our Optional-wide field trip, our first snack calendar going home, and our first round of weekly homework. Please send your child to school with a lunch, clothing layers and maybe rain boots, as it is supposed to be cloudy/drizzly. Bus riders will leave Susitna by 10:00 a.m.; bikers meet in Ms. Jennifer's class at 9:15 to prep for the trip. If you will be driving your child, please be at Susitna by 9:50 a.m. and plan to follow the bus to the park. We will return to school by 2:30 p.m.
For the snack calendar, when it is your child's day, please send in enough snack for 25 children. I ask that you do not send your child with treats (cookies, donuts, etc.) to be handed out as snack items. On your child's day, he/she may also bring in an item to share with the class if he/she would like to.
Homework will be sent home each Friday, to be returned the following Friday. This week I am asking that children read 20 minutes each night. In future weeks, Miss Heather and I will add math homework to the daily reading expectation.
That is all for now. I hope to see many of you at Goose Lake tomorrow!
