We had a great day today. We practiced writing thank-you notes in writing workshop. We made sure we wrote the name of who we were writing to, the message, and signed our name at the end.
We listened to a great story that was donated by our friend Daniel. The book was Otis and the Scarecrow. It was a great story about empathy. Ask me about what Otis did that showed he was thinking about how the scarecrow was feeling.
You will find a letter from our room parents about the two parties we have this year. I will also be including the letter in this blog just in case the letter gets lost! A huge thanks to our three parents who have volunteered to coordinate our parties!
Homework will be online only this week. I will not print it and I don't want you to print it either! Let's save some paper and give the copier a break!
Be sure to check out the two weekend opportunities for families on our homepage.
Have a great afternoon!
We will be serving as Room Parents for Ms. Wolfe’s class and are reaching out to you regarding the events planned for this school year. We will be holding our class Halloween party on Thursday, October 30, 2014 and our Valentine’s Day party on Friday, February 13, 2015. If you are able to volunteer at either of these parties, we would love to have the help!
Every year at Bells Mill Elementary School, each classroom collects money from all of the families in the class to cover the expenses that occur during the year. This year we would like to collect up to $25 from each family. The money collected will be used for the 2 class parties (Halloween and Valentine's Day), and gifts for our teacher. We are hoping that this amount will cover the expenses for the entire year; however, in some cases, we may ask you to donate store-bought food, paper products, decorations, prizes for the kids, time, etc. for our events.
We would like to have all the money collected by Friday, October 24th. Please send your donation in an envelope marked "Class Fund," attention Asanga Domask and include your child's name. You can ask your child to give it to Ella Domask or to Ms. Wolfe. Checks can be payable to Asanga Domask or cash is acceptable.
Please also let us know ways in which you'd like to help by filling out the form below and returning via email. Can you assist in planning our classroom events, the parent’s social, and any gifts we might get for our teacher? Keep an eye out for a Signup Genius that will come by email as we seek volunteer help for the Halloween party.
Please Note: We have traditionally served treats at each of these parties; however, we are well aware of the seriousness of food allergies and intolerance. If you have a child with a food allergy, please let us know. We will look for food options that will be inclusive; however, you may feel more comfortable providing your own safe treat for your child. While we will do our best to address the special dietary needs of children with food allergies, we cannot be held fully responsible for ensuring that every treat will be safe for every food allergy.
We are looking forward to a fun year in Ms. Wolfe's class! Thanks in advance for your generosity and cooperation in making it a great year for the children.
