Happy December!

Happy December everyone, it is always a very busy but exciting month! Just a few reminders for this upcoming week.

Reading Logs are due TOMORROW. Our game day incentive will occur tomorrow afternoon. Also, I will be sending home December Reading Logs tomorrow. They will be due on 12/21, before our winter break begins.

We will have our bi-weekly spelling test this Friday 12/7. I have copied the list of spelling words below. All students have the same list this time. 

Thursday is our whole school field trip to the Whitaker Center. If you signed up for your child to receive a brown bag lunch from school, it will be provided to them on Thursday. If not, please be sure to send a brown bag lunch with your child to school on Thursday. We will be seeing a movie in IMAX as well as rotating through different hands-on science activities while we are there. It sounds like a really fun day!

Have a great week,

This Week

Happy Monday everyone,

Just a reminder that we have a spelling test this Wednesday 11/21. Also, reading logs are due Monday 12/3. All of your children have been encouraged the color in some turkeys over our Thanksgiving Break and use their time wisely if you are doing any traveling for Thanksgiving to complete some of their reading log in the car. This month, students who turn in their reading logs will earn a game day!

We have an early dismissal this Wednesday 11/21, and off from School Thursday 11/22 through Monday 11/26.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Happy Friday,

It was so nice meeting with all of you this week during conferences. I am truly loving working with all of your children, and really appreciate all of the home support from all of you. 

Coming home today is a report card for Applied Engineering. This is separate from the normal report card that I gave to you this week because since Applied Engineering is a new special this year, it is not currently part of Sapphire. 

One Monday, we are all encouraged to wear Red, White, and Blue in support of Veterans Day. 

Also, Tuesday 11/13 is Picture Re-Take Day. Please let me know if any of you are choosing to have your child’s photo re-taken.

Have a great weekend,

Fall Harvest

We were so lucky to have Mrs. Julian from the Edible Classroom join us today to harvest our garden boxes. Our class enjoyed picking tomatoes, pulling carrots, and exploring our gigantic gourd that grew in our garden this year. The boxes have been weeded and emptied for the winter, however the Edible Classroom will be joining us again in the spring for another growing season.

Fire Prevention

Last week, Pequea welcomed West Willow Fire Department to our school to help us learn about fire prevention and safety. We had a fire drill with fake “smoke” in our hallways to simulate a real fire and were able to explore the fire engine later on in the day!

A few announcements…

Just a reminder, tomorrow is picture day, if you wish to order pictures there is an option to order online or you may send the order form and money in tomorrow. 

Coming home today are two papers that must be signed and returned to me. A blue paper allowing you to choose which conference times work best for your schedule, and a movie consent form allowing your child to participate in our movie incentive on Friday,  for those who returned September reading logs to me. The class voted and chose the movie Sing, since it is rated PG the district requires me to get parental permission prior to showing the movie. 

A new reading log came home yesterday, it is due 11/1. New spelling lists also came home yesterday, I will be testing this list next Thursday 10/11. 

As always, thanks so much for your continued support at home!
