Dear Families,


Thank you to everyone who was able to attend conferences. I enjoyed talking to you about your wonderful student. I am blessed to have such a great group of students and parents. Included in today’s Tuesday Folder are copies of the #1-50 chart, #1-100 chart, the first grade sight words, the first 100 sight words, and a Star Reading incentive sheet. Please use these copies to make copies for your child to practice writing numbers and if desired to record your child’s reading minutes to earn free books.


Please find another Pumpkin Patch volunteer sign up sheet in today’s Tuesday Folder. Pumpkin Patch is Friday, October 25th from 4-7. Please read the flyer for more information. I only received 4 responses last week. Grass Valley Orca Swim Team has been kind enough to let us borrow their new sno cone machine at no cost. We do need to cover the cost of cups, straws, and syrup so if at all possible, it would be a great help if parents could donate $2-$3 to help cover costs for the booths. Thank you.


In today’s Tuesday Folder is a permission slip for those students who sold enough magazines to earn the limo ride on Friday, October 4th. Please sign the permission slip and return it to me ASAP. Magazine orders have been sent in so people should start receiving their subscriptions in November. Thank you for your support of this fundraiser.


We are still in need of a PTC representative. This would be a once a month commitment. The next PTC meeting is Thursday, October 3rd at 6:30 in the MPR. Childcare is provided free of charge.


Book orders will be coming in sometime this week. A new book order is going home today. I talked to some of you about the wonderful learning games that are in the Scholastic Book Orders. In the first grade order form is a sight word Bingo game and a Monsters University phonics game. I am also sending home book orders from kindergarten to third grade so that there is a wider selection of books. This is a great time to start stocking up on Christmas goodies. Some of the great books are:

Fly Guy                                    Splat the Cat

Diary of a Fly                           Click, Clack Boo

Pete the Cat                           Fancy Nancy

Flat Stanley                           Pinkalicious

Magic Tree House                  Creepy Carrots

Please remember to make one check payable to Scholastic Books. Book orders are due Wednesday, October 9th.


Have a wonderful week!


Thank you,


Cami Rhodes
