Homework and Content Study


Classroom Happenings for the week of: September 23--26


Please send in a Webster pocket dictionary for your child if you haven't fulfilled that request from the class supply list. It is necessary for your child to be able to complete their work when doing vocabulary. The old dictionaries in the classroom are not sufficient.

Please pick up a medium to large, round pumpkin for your child. We will be using them for social studies in a couple weeks. Do not send them to school, the project will be done at home and they will bring them to school once completed.

Field trip permission slips/money are due on Monday, September 23.

There is no school on Friday, September 27, due to a teacher professional development day through the Archdiocese of Detroit.

Cold weather is coming! If you're looking to get some Bengal wear for your child, please refer to the email notices coming from the office. There are links to order/print off order slips. If you need assistance please see Mrs. Carly Paul in the office.

Thank you to all the parents that were able to make Meet the Teacher night. I enjoyed the conversation and am looking forward to a great year!

Please return the last page of the Student Handbook if you have not done so yet.

Your children are wonderful and are doing their best to acclimate to being back at school. Please ask them daily how their day is going and let me know if there are any problems or concerns.

This weekly schedule may change due to changes in the school day.
