Weekly Update

Dear Families of Room 23,

Picture day is tomorrow. Please send the completed picture envelope to school tomorrow with your child. (A couple students handed me theirs today. Thank you!)

Please review, sign, and return the Unit 2 Math Assessment by Friday of this week (it will be in today’s green folder).

Please check your child’s backpack on Thursday for the Miwok portfolio. Students are very proud of their hard work and excited to share their learning with you.

The Winter Chorus Concert is scheduled for Tuesday, December 11 from 12:40-1:10 in the multipurpose room. 3rd and 4th grade parents are invited to attend this special event. Please see the attached documents with more details from Mrs. Robertson, our music and chorus teacher. We hope to see you there!

Thank you again for the wonderful and constructive Parent Teacher Conferences. It’s been a pleasure meeting with all of you and setting a solid foundation on which to build for the remainder of the year.

I hope you have a wonderful break next week and a happy Thanksgiving!

Regards,

Teresa Shern

Weekly Update

Dear Families of Room 23,

As you may have heard, we experienced a myriad of problems with Hot Shots, the photo company we contracted with to take our school photos. We are now working with a new company called Dorian and will be retaking all student and class photos next Wednesday, November 14 at 9:25am. If you are interested in ordering photos through Dorian, you must fill out the order form I am sending home today and return it to me by the 14th. Dorian representatives will be collecting them at the time of our photo session. If you need additional forms they are available in the school office. Any photos ordered on the 14th should be delivered in time for the holidays.

Also, please take a moment to consider signing-up for car line and/or lunch line. We’re responsible for the weeks of November 26, December 3, and December 10. Please visit the Sign-Up Genius link at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094ba4af29ab9-3rdgrade

Finally, thank you to all of you who have taken the time to meet with me during conferences so far this week. I look forward to meeting with the rest of you very soon.

Regards,

Teresa Shern

Weekly Update

Dear Families of Room 23,

This week’s update will be short and sweet, with just a few announcements.

1.     Halloween is quickly approaching!
a.     Students should come to school in costume and change out of their costumes after the parade. All items should fit into backpacks so students have everything in one place and are set for Halloween night. If your child has a large or bulky costume, please plan on taking it home with you after the parade.

b.    Costumes may not include weapons or be bloody-and-gutsy. (Remember this is a TK-5 school event - please match your child’s costume to the context.)

c.     The Halloween parade will begin at 8:50, followed by a special all-school dance. Please feel free to join us and then meet outside the classroom afterwards to take pictures.

d.    We will participate in a virtual field trip through the California Academy of Sciences…All About Skulls! Other than the parade, this will be the highlight of the day.

2.     Science/Coding rotation begins this Thursday. My class will be going to Mrs. Fisher for coding instruction every Thursday and Friday for a total of twelve sessions.

3.     We have begun using Keyboarding Without Tears at school. Please be on the lookout for your child’s access information. As I’ve explained to my students, it’s up to individual families to decide how much technology children are using at home and what makes sense for each family. Please use the access as you see fit.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Teresa Shern
