Jr. High Cross Country

Meet Results 9/17

It was another solid week of performances at Conestoga Valley this afternoon!

The boys remain undefeated with victories against Conestoga Valley and E-Town. For the first time this season, we claimed the top three spots with Kaleb, Graham, and Liam finishing in that order. They were followed by Carter, Aaron, Aidan, and Gabe.

Although the number of wins for the girls remains the same, they continue to work well as a team. Our point scorers for the day are listed in the order that they finished: Ana, Zoe, Emma, Melanie, Grace, Kaylee, and Maleah.

I would also like to recognize one boy and one girl each week for their individual performances. Drew Risser and Vivi Eckman have run faster each and every meet this season.

Final Comet Classic Update: I will send an updated list of finishers home with the girls tomorrow. Unfortunately the times cannot be retrieved at this point.

Mark your calendars: Our Jr. High Season’s End Pizza Party will be held on Monday, October 14th at Manor Middle School from 3:00-4:30 pm.

Family pictures and more…

Today we starting reading about families and how each family is different. We each made a page for out Family Class Book. If you haven’t sent in a family picture there is still time. We can add it to the pages we made today.

Tomorrow we begin learning about our numbers!

We will also be creating family trees. The trees are just for the people that live in our homes. There are cases I allow the children to make 2.

We have learned about the works “I” and “my”. I am planning to introduce “a” on Friday.

Today we earned our second reward for “Making our Mark”. It was an ice cream treat. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Perfect day for a treat.
Yum!
Vanilla my favorite.
We made our mark.

UPDATES!!!

First off, I apologize because the sub yesterday did not send the homework home correctly. Students completed their homework this morning for morning work. The spelling words game home yesterday and the test will be next Monday.


Thursday is Dress Like/Talk Like a Pirate Day! We will be going ALL OUT here in 2-S. That being said if you do not have pirate items that is FINE! I am supplying an eye patch for each student to wear and we will be making pirate hats in the morning. They are welcome to dress like one or just simply wear black and red. 


We earned a behavior reward last week so Friday, students are welcome to bring a stuffed animal to school. They are only allowed to bring 1 stuffed animal and it must fit in their backpack. 


Lastly, your student will be coming home with a special book today. My goal for this year is to send a book home each month with your student to help them build their own library at home. I am sure many of them already have libraries going but, this can add to them. Each month they will bring a different book home! Please enjoy this book with your student and family! 

If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me. 
Happy Tuesday!

Fun in First Grade

What’s Happening in First Grade?

Spelling: We have been doing a great job with our spelling tests so far! When practicing at home, please help your child remember to write with lower case letters. Next week, I will begin to count words as incorrect if they have capital letters that do no belong there.

This Friday we will be taking our first pre-test in spelling. If students pass ALL of the words on the list for next week on the pre-test, they will get a challenge list of spelling words. These words still follow the same phonics pattern, but will have more challenging spelling combinations.

Reading baggies: Starting next week, your child will be bringing home a reading baggy that contains a book we have read together in our small reading group. These books will be based on your child’s reading level. Please have them read these books as part of their 10 minute reading homework.
*Please note, your child may bring the same book home more than one night. Some nights they will not bring a book home because we may have focused on a specific skill in group that day.

Kindness: Our school will be focusing on kindness during the month of September. Ask your child about our kindness challenge! I have already seen a difference and our class is going above and beyond to help one another. I am so proud of them!

Race for Education: Recently, a few papers went home about Race of Education. The white page is an overall info sheet about the race day, schedule, incentives, the mailer and how to find the students online donation link. To find this go to http://www.race4ed.com/cme there sponsors can search for students by first and last name and make online donations. It’s very simple!  The green paper is the mailer, this can be used to send to a sponsor and have them enclose a check and mail it back. Unlike previous years we will not be mailing these out for families. Instructions on how to use this mailer are on the back of the white sheet. They are a special grade of paper specifically for using through the USPS system so it’s important that families do not just copy the paper if they would like to send out more than 1. There are a pile of extra mailers in the office available at a first come, first serve basis.

Week of September 16th…

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend! Here are some brain stretching activities that are coming down the pike in 5th grade this week.

Curriculum News:

Reading:  Today in reading, we read a realistic fiction passage and began to discuss and identify its elements of fiction. We also picked out figurative language from this narrative and analyzed their meanings.  Tomorrow we will work with a partner on a comprehension activity that is based on this realistic fiction piece.  Wednesday, we will continue to work with our robust vocabulary words, in context, and complete a vocabulary activity independently.  Thursday, we will do some activities that will require us to identify a narrator’s perspective/point of view.  Friday, we will be comparing and contrasting characteristics of the two main characters from our realistic fiction piece from the beginning of the week.

Spelling: Your child received her/his spelling homework packet today. He/she is aware that it is due on Thursday and that our test will be given on Friday.

Math: This week in math, we will start Monday off by learning about multiplying whole numbers by powers of 10. Tuesday we will focus on how to use rounding and compatible numbers to estimate the product of two numbers. Wednesday we will talk about how to use the distributive property and partial products to find the product of two numbers. Thursday we will use the traditional algorithm along with the other strategies to multiply two numbers by each other. Friday we will work on solving word problems involving multiplication. Keep up the hard work in math fifth graders!  

Have a wonderful week and thank you for your support!

Mrs. Eby 🙂

Important Information

Please be sure to check your child’s folder for field trip information that was sent home today. Our field trip is scheduled for Tuesday, October 22nd with Monday, October 28th as a rain date. Once all of the forms are filled out (be sure to check the front and the back!), please place everything, including the money, in an envelope marked with your child’s name and return it to school.

Please initial at the end of each week to show that you have seen your child’s point totals for that week. Students need to earn at least 10 points to participate in our Fun Friday activities that we do with the other third-grade class every other week.

Homework Folders/Guided Reading

Dear First Grade Parents/Guardians-

Our homework folders will look a little different today when they come home. On the front there is a Homework Checklist of what students should be working on Monday-Thursday night. Right now, we only have guided reading and math homework. Spelling and Karate words will start later on this year.

We started guided reading today. So, you will see guided reading bag. There is a book inside that your child should read. They only need to read one of the books inside. Please complete the reading log (on the back of the blue folder) each night after your child has read to you.

Also, it is very important that you initial the behavior chart each night. This is one of the ways that we communicate with home.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
Thank you!

Fourth grade is off and soaring! As always–THANK YOU for your continued support!

This past weekend was the first for parents to sign the “Power Log”. The “Power Log” is the monthly calendar located in your child’s planner. Please remember to sign this ALONG WITH your child’s Weekly Work Envelope and any signed tests. You can find it on page 19 for the month of September. You will notice this week, they began recording where they landed on the clip chart at the end of each day. In addition, your child’s homeroom teacher will sign this page if a student did not complete a homework assignment for that week. If you don’t see a note from us on page 19, that means your child handed in all his/her homework for that week! Each weekend, it’s the students’ responsibility to get this page signed by an adult. This week, please sign in the box for September 21st or September 22nd to verify that you saw the planner.

Here’s a look at our week:
