Weekly News for the week of:  December 15, 2014
 
 
1.  We change up our OWL Binder and Homework routines this week.   Each Monday, your child will receive a Homework Packet that can be completed during the week.  It is due on Fridays.    The cover sheet to these Homework Packets will be this Weekly Newsletter.    Also, weekly reading logs are now being replaced with a nightly reading log sheet that has a specific activity related to it.  Sometimes children will write about a book they read, sometimes they may write their list of spelling words, etc.  
 
2.  Thank you to ALL families donating a $10 gift card to our class from EAI Education GIFT CARD  for the Chair Pockets seen below.

Dates to Remember
Monday, December 15 - NO early release.  DISMISSAL AT 2:45 PM. 
Monday, December 15 - Mrs. Dunaway will have a sub.  This week the district had to fix a glitch with our report cards and ended up deleting ALL of the report card scores, including first quarter grades.   :(        
Antelope teachers are being given a sub day to redo all of the report cards.  I was hoping to get them home to you before Friday, but that doesn't look possible now.  :( 
 
Friday, December 19 - Report Cards come home,  Pajama Day, Last Day before Winter Break, Early Release Dismissal at 1:50 pm.
 
December Reading Logs 
We will now have nightly logs which will be checked each morning.  Please list the three books or chapters your child reads each night. Don't forget to write in the total number of minutes read as well as a parent signature.   
 
Wish List 
1. Brown Grocery Bags,  brought in before Dec. 19,  so the kids have something to bring all of their December crafts home in on our last day.   :)
 
  
Each Friday, wear the color of the month to show your school spirit and positive character!  
Aug./Sept......PURPLE for Citizenship  
October........ORANGE for Fairness  
Nov./Dec. .....YELLOW for Respect  
Jan./Feb........RED for Caring  
March/April..GREEN for Responsibility  
May/June.......BLUE for Trustworthiness
