The class has finished their first week of school and I have to say I am extremely impressed with the students' eagerness to learn and focus in the classroom. We have had some great conversations and discussions about social studies, science, math, religion and language arts. I was very impressed with their engagement in our lesson on the Titanic in reading class the last few days. Many of the students received in class coupons to be used next week based upon their amazing behavior in class. Each child received a punch card the first day of school and many students received 10 whole punches this week earning them a reward. I expect that many more students will be receiving coupons next week. I want to thank you for all the emails I have received this week regarding what has been happening in the classroom. I appreciate the support and feedback. I want to remind everyone that Back to School night will be held next Wednesday. This back to school night is for grades 5-8. I will be staying late that evening for those parents who have children in the middle school as well as 5th grade so that I can speak to everyone!
I hope you all have a wonderful 3 day weekend!
