Requests and Reminders:
*This week, we will be working on the book report. Your child needs to know the characters, setting, and plot of the story. Please do not write this down for them as spelling does not count. We want them to be able to read and recall the details on their own.
*If you are making a pumpkin for bonus points, please send this to school on Friday.
*Thursday we will have a pumpkin party at 1:30 pm. An email went home about this. If you are willing to volunteer to lead a small group in discovering a pumpkin, please email your teacher.
*Friday is a non-uniform day. No Halloween costumes please. Don't forget your quarter.
