B6 - Weekly Newsletter

Monday, October 8, 2018 -  Friday, October 12, 2018

B-6 Parents and Students:
Be sure to look through your student’s white envelope! Inside you will find several flyers and student work samples.

Picture day is this Wednesday! Look for the picture order form in your envelope.

Also in your envelope is a sign up sheet for fall conferences: conferences will be held for all students the week of October 29 - November 2.  Please indicate on the form your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice of time (I will also send a soft copy of the form, so you can reply via email if you prefer).

Next Friday, October 19, will be our first BIoSITE walking field trip. We leave school at 1:10 and return to school at 2:45—this is a short walk to Los Alamitos Creek, where we will meet our Leland High School student instructors.  The purpose of the trip is to investigate our environment - it is a wonderful experience to learn from the high school students who have been trained by the Children’s Discovery Museum.

October 24, will be our trip to Mission San Juan Bautista - thank you all for returning your permission slips promptly! Students will arrive at school at the regular time that day and can be picked up at the regular dismissal time.  Next week, I will send out other trip details.

This week students were treated to their first Art Vista lesson of the year, studying realism vs primitivism, and created piece showing depth perception. Thank you to Mrs. Smitt and Mrs. Park (Zoe’s mom and Amie’s mom) for volunteering!
