FROM OUR ALT – The Common Core: Fact or Fantasy? Myth: The standards are just vague descriptions of skills and do not include a reading list or any other reference to content. Fact: The standards do include sample texts that demonstrate the level of text complexity appropriate for the grade level and compatible with the learning demands set out in the standards. The exemplars of high-quality texts at each grade level provide a rich set of possibilities and have been very well received. This provides a reference point for teachers when selecting their tests, along with the flexibility to make their own decisions about what texts to use.
FROM THE PTA – Congratulations to Ms. Boris’ class for winning the trophy with 629 Box Tops!! This month we earned $325.20 with Box Tops, bringing our grand total to $1,693.70!! There is a collection sheet due January 30th in the Wednesday folder. No December collection.
HOLIDAY SHOPPE – Family Shopping night is Thursday, December 11 from 5:30 – 7:15 pm in Room 114.
TARDINESS AND EARLY DISMISSALS – Prompt arrival of all students is expected. Late arrivals disrupt class and causes loss of instructional time. Any child who arrives at school after 8:20 is considered tardy and MUST be signed in by a parent/guardian. However, if possible, try to schedule appointments for after school, as students miss valuable learning time when signed out early. For early dismissals for doctor/dentist appointments, we encourage you to send a note to your child’s teacher the day of the appointment so they will be better prepared for dismissal. All students are to be signed out in the office. The school secretary/clerk will call students to the office once the parents enter the office to sign them out. Your continued support and understanding is appreciated.
