I’m seeing nice improvement in our reading.  I  enjoy listening to the kids read out loud daily.  I hope you are seeing the improvement too.

I have copied the Fry Phrases and Fry Word Lists onto CDs for some of the boys and girls.  It is a fun way to practice because the words flash on the screen and move along quickly. 

Send a blank CD if you are interested in getting a copy for yourself.  Some students have remarked that they don’t have a blank CD so I have purchased some for those students.  I am happy to provide a copy for anyone!

Thank you for keeping our Friday PRIZE BOX supplied with fun toys and treats.  We look forward to earning a visit each Friday afternoon.      

               Thanks for your support!

I'm Thankful for YOU

Pencil / Colored pencil / Crayon Can
   Please bring an empty can to use for your pencils and crayons.  A 16 oz. size can would be perfect to fit in our little white baskets. 

We have your fancy turkeys coming to school every day.  They make our room look very festive.  It’s fun to see all of the different designs, materials, and creativity!

                             Social Studies
We will be making our own Indian teepees.  We are learning about our Native American friends and our first pilgrims who came to this land.
Good Morning!  Thank you for arriving to school on time.  You may arrive any time after 8:30am.  The first bell rings at 8:50am.  We strive to be settled down and in our seats by then. We begin promptly at 8:55am.

                      Absent From School
If you miss a day of school, please call the office to be excused.  Even though I may know you are ill or out of town, I cannot excuse you on the roll.  Only the office computer can do this function.  If you prefer to write a note instead of phoning, I will be happy to send the note to the office.   Thanks.
    Office # 586-2855 and 586-2856

         Horse Field Trip Rescheduled
Our walking field trip was interrupted with the stormy weather.  I will take the children on a warmer day.  Mr. Ekker said our original permission slip will still work so I won’t need to ask you to sign another one.

Halloween Day Fun

What a FUN Halloween Party!  Thanks to all of the boys and girls who brought snacks to share with everyone and cool, refreshing apple  juice to drink.  We had a lot of loot!

A special thanks to Kaden's mother who provided the party fun!  She brought cookies to decorate with orange icing and candies, orange and black necklaces to thread, colored mini-marshmallows to use on our fun BINGO cards that each child designed, and a candy corn relay race to play if we had time.  

We kept busy going from one fun activity to another!  We topped off the day wearing fuzzy black mustaches from Kaden that made everyone laugh.  

We have the best class and parents ever!
Thank you,
Mrs. Jenson
