This week is our first full week of school in quite some time! Looking forward to accomplishing a lot. No testing at all, except for spelling test on Tuesday. Yes, Fundations homework should be coming home today with your child.
Update for the week are:
Wednesday: Formal Uniforms required for assembly. Our Assembly time is 2:15-2:45
Friday: Pizza Friday...still time to buy today if you haven't done so yet.
This week in class we will be continuing our Viking Quest, ask your child about it, we are having a lot of fun while learning about Vikings! We also reached 10 ducks last week and the kids voted for a 'Nerf War." I need to get with coach to figure out a time we can use the gym for an hour. I will keep you updated as to when exactly it will all happen.
Also, heads up, next Friday, February 7th will be our 100 days of school celebration...so start thinking about how you can use stuff around the house to make your child look '100 years old'. It's a day I always enjoy a lot.
Hope you enjoyed your four day weekend with your kiddo's, I know I did. This week we will not have Fundations homework...I am still collecting Unit 6 week 2 this week to avoid study hall. We will have our weekly spelling test but I have told the kids that we will have it tomorrow instead of today. Next week will go back to normal on Tuesdays.
Tomorrow is Spirit Day at Briccey's coffee shop...the students are allowed to wear spirit wear to school. Friday is our Skate City field trip. We will be leaving on the buss at 9:15 am and get to Skate city in Littleton at 10 am. Parents are welcome to meet us there if they would like to attend. Please pack a completely disposable lunch and disposable water bottle for your child for the day. Also, please make sure their name is on their lunch and water bottle. We did this trip last year and it was so much fun! Let me know if you have any questions.
Happy Sunday, All!
I hope you are having a great weekend!

We had such a GREAT Holiday party before break! This kids loved it and it ran really smoothly thanks to all the parent volunteers, I couldn't do it without you! Please remember to submit your volunteer time so you can get credit for your fun! Hope you all had a fun filled, yet relaxing holiday break. Here are a few reminders for you as we come back from break.
Tuesday Jan. 7th is our first Tuesday of the month and first formal day of 2020.
Tuesday and Wednesday Jan. 7th and 8th is math MAPS testing first thing in the morning so please make sure your child is on time, well fed and of course well rested to ensure they can give their best effort.
Winter parent-teacher conferences are in two weeks, please sign up for a slot if you'd like to see your child's progress throughout the year thus far. If there is not a time that works for you, please let me know and i'd be happy to find one. Here's the link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0F4CA5AB2FA4FE3-winter
Our first field trip of the year is scheduled for Friday Jan. 24th. Permission slips were sent out before break..I have received about half by now and ask that the remaining half please send in your slip and $ no later than 1/16/20. We are wanting to give all the money to accounting so they can cut us a check to get to Skate City before the scheduled trip.
As always, If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out. Let's make it an amazingly awesome 2020 for our kiddo's...thanks for being my village.
Happy last school week of the year! This week we will be wrapping up anything and everything we can including, opinion writing, Roman Empire and our class book.
You should have all received an email via infinite campus outlining our 'spirit wear' for the week but I'll post a copy here too.
️Monday: Red/Green Day
Tuesday: Holiday Hat Day (students need to wear their regular uniform and can wear a fun holiday hat)
Wednesday: Ugly Sweater
️Thursday: PJ Day
Friday: Free Dress
We will not have any spelling words or fundations homework this week! I will be sending home extra credit packets to work on over break in both math and writing. If your child will be leaving town early please let me know or have them tell me so I can get them their extra credit packets early.
As a reminder we have drawn Secret Santa names that your child should get a gift to no later than Thursday. If you have questions please let me know.
Our Christmas party is this Friday from 10:15-11:45...dismissal will be at 12:15 but you can take your child early if you are here for the party anyways. Thank you for all who have signed up and brought supplies in for the party. Here is the sign up link if you haven't had a chance yet.
Finally, I have already told the kiddo's they can wear P.J.'s to school on Friday for the party. The school has now said it is a free dress day so it is up to them (or you) however they'd like to dress. most of us are planning cozy holiday P.J's still though :)
This week we will continue MAPS testing and be working on our benchmark Dibbels testing. We also have popsicles with the principal for completing our first trimester READ plans and Pizza Friday. ( I think there is still one day left to order through my school lunch) We will also be helping put together our giving back for the homeless gift bags this week.
Thank you for all who donated, we cannot believe the amount of love and support we will be able to hand out from our students this year!!
Welcome Back! Hope everyone had a exciting yet relaxing break. This week we will be doing our mid year MAPS testing for reading on Tuesday and Wednesday. As a reminder, please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and great nutrition to ensure their brain is fueled and able to work at its full capacity!
This Tuesday is Formal uniform day.
We will be holding our in class spelling Bee this Friday during Language Arts. Your child should have brought home a 'general list' of the words we will be spelling the week before break started. If not, you can see the words on my website under the Language Arts tab. If you have questions, please let me know.
Finally, Please mark your calendars for Friday January 24th 2020. We will be headed on our first field trip of the year that day and I want to make sure everyone who wants to attend can have plenty of notice. We will be headed to Skate City to participate in some STEM activities then get to eat lunch and skate. more details and full price coming soon.....
This week the kids are trying to earn a 'Thanksgiving' party by earning 10 ducks. We are at 8 so I think it'll happen. I am asking that parents send $2-$5 in with their kids to contribute to the party. I will not be doing parent helpers or sign up genius this time around as it will mostly be PJ's, G movie and some nut free and gluten free snacks that I buy with the donations.
I will also be sending home a Thanksgiving writing prompt packet for extra credit over break in hopes that the kids continue practicing their writing that we have been getting so much better at this year.
Monday- Fundations homework comes home...due by Friday, if not sooner. (please make sure you are doing these packet WITH your child as that is how they are meant to be done).
Tuesday- Spelling test- no new spelling words coming home this week. PTO meeting at 6pm.
Wednesday- Ms. Cook has a sub, any donations to class party due.
Thursday- Class party, wear PJ's, Study hall will be today too.
Friday- Ms. Burdick has a sub. Free dress day earned through meeting box top goal. Pizza Friday, Cougar Cash store at lunch, Cougar Essential awards 2pm-3:35
Please let me know if you have any questions,
