Dear Parents,

Canned food drive to help out families in our school community is over on Thursday.
Thursday is a popular day!!

We will be going to "The Christmas Carol" on Dec. 2nd. Cost is $3 a student. We will leave the school at 8:25. 

Friday, my class will be watching "Shiloh" the movie. It is PG. The few bad words will be skipped. Please either sign the permission slip or email me permission for your child to watch it. We would love to have some healthy treats to eat with the movie!

Any ixl completed during the week of Thanksgiving will be extra credit for your child. We are currently working on E.1-E-11 and BB.1 - BB.11

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow is Dress up like your favorite career day. Students may dress up as whatever they would like to be when they grow up. 

We started our canned food drive today. It is an all school food drive to collect food for those less fortunate than ourselves. We can't take home canned goods or expired food items. A prize will be awarded to the class to bring in the most food. All canned foods are welcome, but here is a list of foods that would be great for Thanksgiving. Obviously, everything is not canned. 
Corn Bread or Corn Muffin Mix
Dessert Mix
Canned fruit, corn, green beans
Chicken Broth
Canned Pumpkin
Evaporated Milk
Cranberry Sauce
Gravy Mix
Brown Sugar
Foil Roasting Pans
Throw away Pie pans

Cookie Dough will arrive on November 16th between 11 and 2. Please pick up orders of more than 2 cookie dough after school on that Thursday. We will send home small orders with the students.

Scholastic Book Orders are due on the 16th as well.

We are finishing Shiloh this week and will show the movie next week. There are a couple of cuss words in it. I will find out exactly where they are, and make sure I forward thru them. I will be sending home a permission form for you to sign or you can email me with permission for your child to see the movie. It is PG because of those words. We are going to start reading Stone Fox. 

We are still working on long division with up to 4 numbers divided by 1 and multiplication with up to 2 numbers times 3. We are also working on area and perimeter. For the next three weeks, please have students work on E.1 - E.11 and BB.1 - BB.11 on

Thank you so much for understanding and patience while I was away last week. I absolutely hate being gone from my class. I am so proud of my class while I was gone. They were terrific.

Dear Parents,

Cookie Dough will arrive on December 16th. If you child had a few orders, we will send it with him or her on the bus or out to parent pickup. If you child has more than that, you can pick it up in the gym on the 16th after school. It comes to us frozen and we do not have a place to store it, so please be sure and pick it up after school on the 16th of December.

Scholastic book orders will be due the 16th of November for this month.

I will be sending home an Idaho Power science kit and workbook with each student. Each kit contains things like an energy efficient shower head and LED light bulbs. There are lessons to work through with your child. I will  be sending home the survey for Idaho Power in a few weeks. If we turn them all in, we get $100 for science supplies.

We have been reading Shiloh. We will be finishing that book up and will start one called Because of Winn Dixie. In math we have been working on multiplication of up to 2 numbers x 2 numbers and long division. We have also been working on area and perimeter.
