As part of our Social Studies unit we have been discussing ways to be a responsible citizen, how to serve your community, rules and laws, and the role of the government. Part of this unit also includes celebrating the diversity of our peers. We will be creating a diversity quilt to show how our students are all different. Each student has been given a square to decorate to represent their family’s culture. The square can show special foods, music, clothes, holidays, or any tradition that is important to your family. The completed square is due on Monday, August 26th.
Our first Spelling Test will be this Friday. Students will write down their Spelling Words in their agendas each Monday to study throughout the week at home.

Tonight your child will bring home a "Gold Folder." Gold folders will come home every Friday. In this folder you'll find: a behavior report for a parent to sign, our Ladybug Newsletter (starting next week), important fliers from the school and other organizations, and your child's classwork from the week.
Please look through these items carefully, and sign and return the behavior report every Monday. It is part of your child's homework to get the behavior report (or other necessary papers) signed every weekend.
If your child takes a quiz on Friday, please don't look for these grades until the following week so I have time to grade them. All tests are taken online this year, so you will not see tests coming home in your child's folder. More information will be coming on how to check child's grades online through PowerSchool. Anyone who has older students may already have access to this online tool.
Starting tonight, students will have daily homework. Homework will come home nightly in the homework folder and is due the next morning. Please refer to the homework grading policy in the parent flipbook.
We will have our first quiz next week! You will find study guides in your child's homework folder tonight to study his/her Social Studies and Math.
