C11 Super Citizen Schedule for 2012-2013
We welcome volunteers who help our teachers and staff elevate opportunities for students. Please review the following processes.
Monday, November 13 - Friday, November 17, 2017
B-6 Parents and Students:
Be sure to look through your student’s white envelope! This week there are several flyers and student work samples. Graded items include the Chapter 2 science test, and the module 5 math test.
This week students got to visit their kinder buddies, and assist them with a Thanksgiving project! It is a super opportunity for our class to model expected behaviors and learn to teach others.
Also, if at all possible, mark your calendar for a parent meeting for ALL fourth grade parents, Tuesday 12/5 from 1:15-2:00 in B-6 ... it is time to begin planning for Gold Rush! As many of you know, a tradition at Graystone in fourth grade is Gold Rush Day, an all-day event “re-enacting” activities from the gold rush. The event will occur May 18. This is a parent-run event; we have LOTS of supplies, information, history, and props, but will need a cadre of volunteers to make this event a success! The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the event, share and explain what resources we have available, and begin to fill volunteer positions.
