Some important notes and dates!

*Math Night is Tuesday, October 18 at 6:30pm in the Chapel. For parents who
are unable to attend, the presentation will be videotaped and posted on the parent
page of our website.
*Picture retakes are Monday, October 17.
*Stand up Against Bullying on Wednesday, October 19!  It is “Wear Orange”
casual day for all.
*No school on October 20-21  (Faculty Workshop)
*Halloween is Monday, October 31!  We will have our annual parade of costumes
beginning at 8:40am.  Parents are invited to the Anderson Gym for the festivities.

Costumes should be school-appropriate (no weapons, scary objects, or face paint)

I would really like to have the students at conferences with us.  They will lead the first part of the conference and then will be excused for the second half (unless we need them there the entire time). In 4th grade it's imperative that they understand that their learning is positively impacted by their participation.  Of course, if this isn't possible, I understand.

I understand that some of you may have been having trouble getting the Scholastic book web site to recognize my code.  Try  
You should be able to simply enter the code: LGXWQ to place an order.

Here are a few pictures from our adventures in STEAM class ...

A few notes!

Please note that Monday is picture day!  We are hoping to get our Travel Journals out this week.  If you haven't returned your envelope please do so as soon as possible!

We've changed our biddying schedule and won't begin biddying until the end of October.  At that point we will biddy on days 1, 3, and 5.  This means we will be eating lunch with the preschoolers and kindergartners from 11:10-11:50.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to email or call me.

What a great week!!

What a fantastic first week of school!  I can tell already that it is going to be a wonderful year.  We ended our week with a little group work - the kids did a great job working together to save Fred.  Ask them to explain.

This week begins with Convocation and the students will also get their computers.  The computers won't start coming home until mid-October at the earliest, but it's still quite exciting.  Also, Thursday night is the Lower School Back to School night.  A great deal of information is given out that night and I hope to see you all there.  Please let me know if you are unable to attend.

Thank you for sending me such amazing children!
