•Reading Log: Students should read for at least 20 minutes on 18 days of the month. They
should also answer one question in complete sentences on the back of the log. For each day
that the reading log is late, 10 points will be subtracted from the overall grade.

• Book Report: The October/November Book report has been assigned. Please check your
child’s Keep at Home pocket, or refer to the class website for the assignment. Students will
have two months to complete each book report this year. Due Thursday, November 29th

• Third-Topia: If you would like to donate any items to our Class Store for behavior incentives,
please send them in with your child! We would love if any parents would be interested in
donating a basketball, bouncy ball, or anything your child is interested in buying (with fake
“class” money).

•Renweb: Please keep up with your child’s grade percentages and progress on Renweb.

Reminders
• Please check your child’s Daily Folder and Agenda each day after school. The agenda
contains important information regarding assessments, assignments and projects. It also
contains assignments from the day that may need to be completed as homework.

•If your child brings work home in the “Homework” section of the daily folder, this work needs
to be finished as homework, and should be turned in the next day.

• Please try to remind your student to bring a snack each day. We are letting them know it is
their responsibility to make sure they pack them.

• Chapel is every Tuesday morning. Please have your child wear the chapel uniform and
proper accessories (ties and cross-ties).
