Weekly News for the week of February 27, 2017
We go back to a Nightly Reading Log Homework this week.  It will be checked each morning.  PLEASE spend 20 - 30 minutes listening to and helping your child read each night.  Incomplete reading logs will result in a child staying in at recess to read.
 We also change our Writing Homework.  It is now a Book Summary about either the paper book sent home each night or a book from home that the child has read to someone.   PLEASE help your child with their Book Summary each night.  Many children have been handing in writing homework that was obviously not done with parent help;  many misspellings, no capitals and periods, and sentences that don't even make sense.   
 This Week's Spelling Words.  The Test is Friday.

"It comes down to simple arithmetic:  the child spends 900 hours a year in school and 7,800 hours outside school.  Which teacher has the biggest influence? Where is more time available for change?"  - Jim Trelease, author of The Read Aloud Handbook
