Welcome back! I hope that everyone had beautiful and restful holiday break!
Thank you all for such a great conference week. It was truly a joy to sit and connect with each of you about your child. As I told a couple of parents, I am so grateful to be working in a community where I truly get to walk side by side with incredible parents who are raising such incredible human beings. Thank you so much for being such connected and inspiring parents! Expect Report Cards in back packs tomorrow! I’m sending home technology permission slips for the kids to start their digital portfolios. Each student will have their own Google Apps account to create, share, and file their writing assignments from 3rd to 8th grade. Please return the slips back to me as soon as possible, and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Homework This Week Since I forgot to send home folders last week, I had the kids complete their week’s assignment in class. We’re coming down the home stretch with our fables genre study! I have changed the due dates of this month’s book projects (character masks). Please check see the new dates on the front cover sheet in the folder.
Around Campus Book Fair - December 4-8th The Copperfield's Book Faire is coming up the week of December 4th through the 8th, with a fun Holiday Shopping Event and Pizza Party planned for the afternoon of the 7th, starting at 1:30. To make this event a success, we depend on the generous volunteer efforts of the parents. Please consider signing up for a spot, or two in the link below. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sVonl7isJN_uAktFZ66A0dBUa2j_pWHk8Y_j96FNTE8/edit#gid=0
Parent Yoga Class-Mondays from 8:30-9:30am Hediyeh, a kindergarten parent and yoga teacher, will now be teaching yoga for parents on Mondays after drop off! This drop in class will start the Monday after Thanksgiving break and is available to all parents/guardians, regardless of skill level. Interested parents should park in the gravel lot by the garden and sign in with Hediyeh in the gym (or assembly hall if an assembly is taking place that day) and grab a visitor sticker by the sign-in sheet. Mats will be available to those who don't have one. We encourage you to connect with other parents across grade levels and nourish yourself each Monday morning! A donation jar will be set out during the class if you'd like to help contribute toward ARK , though no one will be turned away if they can't pay.
