Week 5 ~ Oct. 2 - Oct. 6, 2017


Wow!  Way to go boys and girls in Room 103!  We are the APEX champions!  We all had fun at the Run on Friday and the boys and girls really enjoyed the visits and lessons each day with Mighty Max.  A big THANK YOU parents for the support at home with helping us get so many pledges.  The APEX team left a few more prizes Friday afternoon to give out.  Those will come home on Monday.  As a result of all this hard work, Hat Day will be Monday.  I’ll let the boys and girls decide which day they want to trade seats at school and our last prize earned will be Pajama Day.  We’ll do that on Friday.  I will send a reminder note on Thursday.  Thanks again for all your support!

Super IMPORTANT information ahead! àWe will begin bringing home our “Reading Logs” and 2 books each day for Homework.  We’ve been practicing reading and logging in at school so your Kindergartener is ready to start doing this at home!  HOMEWORK from here on will be to read for 30 minutes each evening.  Log in 2 books that you read to earn 2 Steps.  (Every 15 minutes of reading equals 1 Step.)
