We are still in need of helpers for the fall FIESTA on October 31st.  We will have an art activity, a snack, and a game.  There will also be a Halloween Parade.   The plan is to set up the party from 9:45-10 and have the kiddos get in their costumes.  We will do a costume parade at 10ish.  Then we will run the 3 activities from 10:15-11 (15 minutes or so each.)  If you have a great idea for an art activity, snack, or game, please let me know.  We have some the students can do, but would love to have your help!!

Sorry for the lack of information the past 2 weeks.  If you ever have any questions, please feel free to email!

I will be conducting the individual assessments on each child over the coming weeks.  I have waited to give students a chance to settle in to the routine of school and get to know us.   I will assess in October, February, and May.  These assessments will help us with teaching moving forward.

Our Fall Fiesta is coming up!  It will be on October 31st.  This party will be from 9:45-11:15.  The students will be allowed to change into costume for the costume parade, and then will return to the classroom for the party.  We are looking for parents to help out.  If you can help that day, or if you want to plan the party, please let me know!
