Thanks to Gus’ mom, we had a great lesson in perspective and use of a horizon line. Our colored pencil fall scenes look so great after using these techniques to create a sense of depth to our pictures. The pictures are on display in the hallway and photos are on the classroom blog.
Two families asked this week about birthday treats. We probably should have shared the school policy with you before now. Here it is:
Birthday treats or parties are not permitted at school. This is due to the difference in economic, dietary and religious circumstances. We will make your child feel special that day with recognition within the school day. Some parents choose to send a special treat and note in their individual child’s lunch. Others make arrangements to eat lunch with their child that day.
Your child should have brought home 2 important papers this week. The first one is a copy of their registration form information. Please look closely at all of the information and correct anything that is no longer accurate. If the form is correct, just send it back. The other important paper was a field trip permission slip. Ms. Belesiotis’ and Mrs. Wold’s classes are going to the Mt. Hood Planetarium next Thursday (14th). Mrs. Shaw’s class is going Friday (15th). Yes! We have school Friday.
