Dear Parents,


Mrs. Jackson and I really enjoyed meeting with you during parent teacher conferences.  Thank you for all you do!  With that, we closed out quarter 1!

Snack family for Friday, October 26 is the Meharry family.  Snack family for Monday, October 29 is the Merkle family.  Snack family for Monday, November 5 is the Stinebaugh family.

Thank you for sending in items for our adopted seminarian-to-be.  We sent him a nice box of goodies.

Please remember to have your child leave a “spare snack” in his/her bookbag. I had quite a few kids forget snack last week.

Grade 3 has a math test over subtraction tomorrow.  Books are coming home tonight to use for some extra practice problems.  We start talking about multiplication on Wednesday.

There is a baseball themed dress down day tomorrow (no Cubs attire allowed ha ha.) Bring $1 (which will be donated to charity) to participate.  Sweatpants are allowed.

Picture day is this Wednesday, the 24th.  See Tiger Tales for details.  You can pay online or send in the picture form.

In social studies, we will be talking about basic economics:  supply/demand, wants vs needs, saving and spending money, etc. Nicole Merkle (Ellery’s mom) will come in this Thursday to talk to us about money.

The REACT group from the U of I will be in our room on Friday morning for a chemistry lesson. The kids always love what REACT teaches us.

Hot dog lunch is this Friday for those who purchased it.


Have a wonderful week!  Wendy Carmien
