PARENTS! We need help at psycho motor each Monday from 8:10 until 9:10.  Please help out.  It is fun!

We have traffic duty for the next two weeks.  Sign up to help out! 

Conferences take place from November 3 – 9.  On Monday, October 23, at 7:00 p.m. I will send out a Google doc for parents to sign up for a conference time during that week.  Click on the document and select a time.  I have one entire conference day – all day November 3rd  - that has been made available to upper grade teachers due to classroom size.  If you are able to attend that day – GREAT!

Halloween Parade at Welby to take place on October 31 at 8:15 a.m.  When the parade is over, our class will have a small brunch in the classroom.  Mrs. Chatterjee has sent out a google sign up for snacks.  After the brunch, students will change into school day clothing and the real fun will begin (academics)!

Did your child tell you that he/she ran a mile on Friday morning?
