Vocabulary Parade

The 5th annual Vocabulary Parade took place today at Memorial.  The third graders worked hard on their costumes. They each represented a different adjective and did a wonderful job!!!  Everyone had a great time, even the teachers were in on it!!!

These girls were dressed as old, fluffy, happy, wild, and wrinkled!

Some of our students even got "Crazy"!
The teachers love to be "mismatched"!

Class Expectations

      The students have been working very hard to earn tickets and marbles in our class. 
     Tickets are given whenever students are being a bucket filler or showing respect to others.  A ticket is drawn at the end of the day for the student or students to pick from the prize bin.
     Marbles are given out anytime the class receives a compliment.  Once our marble jar is filled students will decide on a class reward, such as pajama day, movie day, etc.
     Please ask your child about these incentive programs and how they are doing each day.  Your support and reinforcement at home helps a great deal in the classroom.  Please also review with your child respectful behaviors and ask your child to teach you how to be a bucket filler.  They are very good at it!!!  
    Thank you for all your help and support.  I look forward to meeting all of you at Back to School Night on September 27th.

Wow!  It's hard to believe one week has already flown by.

The kids are doing a wonderful job.

Just a few reminders.....Please check your child's backpack daily to see if there is any important information you may need.  Also, be sure to check the homework tab for your child's nightly homework.  Finally, backpack folders will go home every Friday and need to be returned on Monday!
