Hoops for Heart

Hoops for Heart will be next Wednesday, March 11th from 1:00 - 3:00. Information is coming home today. Students are encouraged to raise money for this event. If you need more information, feel free to email Coach Wise or I.

National School Breakfast Week: 3/2 - 3/6

Next week is National School Breakfast Week.  We would like to celebrate and encourage students to eat school breakfast.
For grades K-4
We will hand out small prizes daily (stickers, pencils, erasers, etc.)!   These will be handed out as students leave the cafeteria AFTER eating breakfast.
For grades 5-8
Any student who eats school breakfast every day that week will receive a cookie when they get their breakfast that Friday morning!

Friday Newsletter

You should have received an email with our 5th grade Friday newsletter. I'm hoping this improves our communication from school to you!

If you did not receive an email, it is either because I do not have an email for you OR I had the wrong email address and it didn't send. I have sent a paper copy home with each student who I know didn't receive an email. If you didn't get my email and I didn't send a paper copy home, please let me know. I will double check the email address I have on file for you.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have a wonderful weekend! Lets hope for NO snow and ice!

News for the week

I hope everyone is enjoying their time off school in the snow!

The field trip has been rescheduled for March 3rd. I will keep all of the permission slips & we will go as planned, just with our new day. If you signed up to chaperon, but cannot on March 3rd, please let me know. If you didn't sign up to chaperon, however would like to, also please email me.

The kids already know but I will be at a conference for the rest of the week. I expect the students to be on their best behavior for their substitute. They will have a pre-test for our 1st life science unit on Thursday & will begin a Reader's Theater over the body systems this week. We will be covering the following systems; muscular, skeletal, digestive, respiratory, circulatory and nervous.

Thursday will be a study day for social studies. Friday they will have a test over the powers of government; local, state and federal.

I will see the kids bright and early on Monday!

Field Trip

I want to remind everyone that there will be no school on Monday and the field trip is Tuesday. 

Because we live in Missouri, the weather forecast is always changing. If we have a late start or no school on Tuesday, we will reschedule the field trip for the beginning of March. If for some reason the Nixa Community Center closes and we DO have school, I will post the field trip cancellation on my blog as soon as I get the confirmation. Please be patient and check the blog for updates Monday. I will pass along all information as I receive it. 

If you are planning on chaperoning or even just spending the day with your child, you may meet us at the Nixa Community Center at 8:50. If you decide to take your child with you after the festival, you will need to check him/her out with me. 

Also, thanks to the parents who made it out today for our Valentines Day party. Our kids had a great time. And a big shout out to Coach Wise for getting them outside to run off some of their energy! Enjoy your 3 day weekend.

Field Trip

I had originally planned on sending the permission slips for the field trip home on Friday but we have had a change in plans. They will be coming home TOMORROW (Tuesday).

We will need a lunch count by Tuesday, February 10th, so this will give everyone a full week to return them. If I do not have a permission slip signed & turned in by Friday the 13th, your child will not be able to attend the field trip.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me anytime!
