This week we kicked off the Archer Glen Fun Run. Each student should have brought home their fun run packet yesterday afternoon. The fun run is scheduled for the afternoon of September 28. Mr. Wollmuth got the kids excited at our assembly yesterday and told the kids about all of the prizes that they can earn for raising money. The money that is raised goes directly to the students at Archer Glen by paying for field trips, classroom supplies, and technology equipment. Your support of the fun run is greatly appreciated.
This week we kicked off our Biztown unit. We started to learn about what it means to be part of a community, the difference between private and public goods and services, and taxes. Next week we will be learning about financial institutions, and how to write checks. The kids always love that part and get excited to be able to write checks for purchases when we visit Biztown.
The first of this year's Scholastic Book Order forms went home yesterday. I included multiple catalogs, and there are some great titles for as low as $1.00. I also included information for you to order online, which is the most efficient method of ordering. There is also a direct link on our classroom website. Just click on the Scholastic Banner on the right side of the page, and it should allow you to log in to our classroom page. Please let me know if you have any questions. Please send orders back to school or order online by next Friday, September 21.
This Tuesday is Back-to-School Night. The evening will begin in the cafeteria with Mr. Wollmuth at 6:00pm, followed by two sessions with classroom teachers from 6:30-6:55 and 7:00-7:25. With the change in conferences this year, we will not be having conference sign-ups like we have in the past. More information about conferences will be given on Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!
