Storytelling, Field Trips and Conferences!

Parents and Guardians,

Our classroom community is phenomenal!  Everyone has been showing up ready for school with a great attitude.  I am so grateful to be working with this group of kids!

Some of the things students have been working on are geography, word-roots, and storytelling.  We are currently working on Story #2; a noteworthy journey or adventure. Your student should have completed a rough draft and read it to a classmate.  A final draft should be typed this weekend; we will share stories Monday.  Your student has received written instructions for this assignment.  Students should also be doing math at home and reading a chapter book for at least a half-hour a night.

Our first field trip to Central Oregon will be September 21-22.  I have all the permission slips, but many students need to work out financial details.  Thanks in advance for taking care of this.

Goal setting conferences will be the night of October 4th and 5th.  I will be sending home  a sign up time this week to those parents who have not already signed up.  I am looking forward to meeting with everyone!

Thanks to Bryce McKenney for being the first Room 9 student to post!  We will be hearing from our students intermittently throughout the year.

Looking forward,

Pete Leone
