Important Tidbits:
~ Thank you so much to Dylan's mom, Rebecca Howell for purchasing a new pencil sharpener for the classroom. I love it!! Thanks so much Rebecca!

~ Thank you to Sammy's parents, Catherine and Brad Stone for donating money to classroom which will bring more books to our class. Your kindness is awesome!

~  If you are so inclined, we could use some more treasure box goodies. Some ideas are:

  • trinkets
  • toys
  • candy
  • jewelry
  • fruit snacks
  • note pads
  • pens
  • key chains
  • noise makers
  • pencils
  • erasers
  • etc...

I would love any donations!! Thanks for your consideration.

~ Picture day is this Wednesday, August 10th. Please return the envelope by Wednesday morning. If you have misplaced yours, the office will have one they can give you.

~ Please remember to have your child bring their book bag back to school everyday. It is very important that they have those books with them everyday!

~ Don't forget to complete your "All About Me" poster by August 19th. we will be making a classroom book. If you have it done already, you may send it in early. If you need a reminder about the assignment, please let me know. :)

~ Let me tell you about Tebow Time! That's right, Tebow Time, as in Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos!! I have a special time of the day every day where the children practice their reading skills. I have talked to them about the importance of practice, practice, practice. Just because you know how to do something, doesn't mean you shouldn't keep practicing to get better. That's where Tim Tebow comes into play. We talked about how important it is to continue to practice even though you already know how to do something. Would Tim Tebow ever tell his coach, "I already know how to play football, I don't need to practice!" No way!! Ask your child to tell you all about Tebow Time!!

Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment!
