Week of October 23rd


It is going to be a busy week in our classroom!  Friday is going to be full of fall fun with our field trip to Sandy Point and our Halloween Party! It's not too late to join us at Sandy Point Discovery Center. We will be leaving Lincoln Street at 9:10 am and plan to arrive at 9:30. If you would like to chaperone, the cost is $4. You can send the $4 ahead of time to school, or give it to me when arriving at Sandy Point at 9:30 am. They asked that one person collect chaperone money for organizational purposes. Students will be divided into groups and we will rotate stations. Come join us for a little while, or stay until 1 pm!  Students are asked to dress in layers, as it can be windy and cold. I have submitted school lunches to the cafeteria. Please let me know of any changes no later than Wednesday. I am so excited for them to continue their Estuary PBL (Project Based Learning) at Sandy Point!

When we return to school, we will have a Halloween Party from 1:30-2:30 pm. Third grade cornfield characters will be outside of Lincoln Street, as well as the Main Street Halloween Parade that passes by our classroom! Get ready for an exciting day!

This week I will be posting a SignUpGenius here on the blog for November Conferences! I will send home a written notice as a reminder to sign up!
