Greetings, Panther families! Thank you for coming to our Back to School Night last Thursday. What a great turn-out! Just a few reminders this week.
Swimming – Thank you for helping your child to get ready everyday. We have one more week of swimming. The students are doing wonderfully! Please see our Photos 2015-2016 page. If you have time this week, come by Parkway Pool to see us swim!
Library – Our normal library day is Monday at 2:30 every other week. Students are to check out two books (1 fiction, 1 nonfiction) at their levels. I will send back your child’s level sheets for you to keep at home. Please get to know your child’s levels and check that their books correspond. Students may get new books when they’ve read and taken tests on the books.
AR Reminders – The rule for chapter books is 20 pages per night. Some students are only pretending to read chapter books. If they are doing this, please have them switch to picture books at their levels. This way they will be more successful with their AR points. Remember they should be earning 2 points every week. You can check this on the yellow AR Report I send home every Friday with the Weekly Progress Reports. Please sign both and return. Thank you!
Rosebank Gear – Please send in any orders for Rosebank shirts, etc. by this Wed. Aug. 19. Please stop by the office if you need another order form. We will show our Panther Pride by wearing our Rosebank gear on Fridays!
PAWS Rotations – We will have our 2nd PAWS rotations this Tuesday afternoon. Students rotate between 3 classes – Visual Arts with Mr. Rafael, Dance/PE with Mrs. Romo, and Drama/Theatre with Ms. Cherie. Each class is 40 minutes long. PAWS will occur every other week.
Conferences – Thank you for signing up for Conferences at Back to School Night. I will send a confirmation/reminder slip soon. If you weren’t able to sign up, I will send/post an updated Conference Schedule soon so you may sign up for available openings. Conferences will take place Sept. 10-17.
Happy birthday to David on Monday!
