PTO is hosting the annual Fun Run to raise money for recess equipment. Students can collect pledges to raise money! If you need a new pledge sheet, let your teacher know. You can also order a team shirt from: http://bluewaveapparel.com/DPESFunRun
Class Parties: Each class party is a $5 donation, or you can pay all $15 at one time. The Christmas party is December 22nd at 11:30 am.
What We're Learning:
Reading) We are working on a readers' theater of Stone Soup this week! Students are practicing their fluency and comprehension through the form of a play. It will be video recorded for you :-)
Writing) We are starting a short unit on letters. Students must understand the format of a letter and be able to write short, friendly letters.
Math) We are working on addition and subtraction to 20 with word problems. The way that I teach word problems is by asking the following questions: What do you need to find out? (Look to the question.) What do you already know? and What are you going to do to solve it--add or subtract? Students are allowed to use counters for this test on December 8th.
Social Studies) We are learning about timelines this week. Students will create a timeline of their life, so please talk to them about events from their past.
Science) We are learning about movement--how things move (straight, zig-zag, round and round, etc.) and what kinds of objects move that way.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please send me an email or give me a call! Thank you!

Next week we have a few exciting events. Our first one will be on Monday morning. We will have our first Call to Excellence beginning at 8:30. This is a time for all students to gather for morning announcements and to review our 8 Expectations for Learning, Life Principle of the Week and learn our new Callback for the week. We will only do this on Mondays. Tuesday, September 19, we are having our WATCH D.O.G.S. kickoff beginning at 6 PM. This will be for all of our Dads, Granddads, and other male figures of the family to come and see how you can help with safety on our campus. On Thursday, September 21, we will have Parent Orientation for PK – 2nd Grade from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Parent Orientation for 3rd and 4th Grade will be on Thursday, September 28 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
