The last Get-Out event will be held this Sunday, September 30th. It will be a 1 mile fun run in Old Town. Parents are welcome to run/walk with their kids. Look for Mrs. Keyworth on Mountain Ave. near Coopersmith's.
Students are given their AR reading range and then the freedom to select books within that range. When selecting books they use the I PICK method.
I - select a book
P - purpose...what is my purpose?
I - interest...does this book interest me?
C - comprehension...can I understand it?
K - know...do I know most of the words?
We talk a lot about how it is okay to put a book back if they don't like it, understand it or know most of the words. A book that might not fit us now, may fit us in the future!
Picture day is Friday, Sept. 21. We will not be taking a class picture at this time, only individual pictures for the yearbook. If you have picture money to send with your child, please have them give it to me, not the office.
There is a new tab called "October Conferences". You will be able to see where you signed up and when we will be meeting. Let me know if your schedule has changed and you need a different time.

The copy room is looking for help! If any parents are interested in helping with clerical/copy work, could you please email me or Heather Dahmer at firstname.lastname@example.org. They would love 10 volunteers so everyone would be there every other week. Typical hours are from 8:35-10:30 (they leave when they are done).
I showed the students how to make a Voki. Here is the link to the website: www.voki.com
Voki's are a great way for children to become creative with their writing and they will have a chance to practice their typing at the same time.
This Friday is Bethke's Annual Wellness Day. The festivities will kick off at 8:45 with a PT from the Windsor Fire Department. Then the entire school will participate in a 15 minute walk around campus. At 9:45 our class will come back outside to participate in the different Wellness Booths that will have been set up.
Please send your child to school with:
*hat/sunglasses - optional
Parents are welcome to join us for the the warm-up activities from 8:45 - 9:15.
