Important Information and Dates
 


                        funds run is this friday


i think that this is the best fund raiser we have because no one has to buy anything! if you can only support one fund raiser this year, this is the one to support. If your child didn’t get anyone to pledge him/her a few dollars then errol and I pledged them $1.00 a lap because i believe that It is really important that all Candalaria students feel that they are a part of earning their field trips and omsi presentations, etc. so...

THANK YOU FOR RETURNING YOUR CHILD’S PLEDGE SHEET...  I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!

the funds run is October 5th. You are welcome to come and run with your child... or to just come and cheer your child along. we will be running from 10 - 10:30 with Mrs. Andersen’s class.


                        Our first field trip


permission slips went home thurs oct 4th.

please return your child’s permission slip and $5.00 asap.


we will be going to wavra farms on october 9th to visit their pumpkin patch and see what we can observe about fall at a nursery/farm. permission slips will come home OCTOBER 1ST.

WANT TO COME WITH US?

WE MIGHT, POSSIBLY, HAVE ROOM FOR A VERY FEW PARENTS ON THE BUS... IT ALWAYS DEPENDS WHAT SIZE OF A BUS THEY SEND US... AND WE NEVER KNOW UNTIL THAT MORNING. PARENTS WITH BACKGROUND CLEARANCES ARE WELCOME TO SHOW UP IN ROOM 15 THE MORNING OF THE TRIP TO SEE IF THERE WILL BE ROOM, BUT MOST CANDALARIA PARENTS CAR POOL FROM THE SCHOOL WHEN WE HAVE FIELD TRIPS.


ANOTHER CANDALARIA POLICY IS THAT WE DO NOT ALLOW SIBLINGS ON FIELD TRIPS.


AND... WE REALLY APPRECIATE THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE ABLE TO TUrn YOUR CELL PHONES OFF DURING OUR FIELD TRIPS. WE REALIZE THAT THIS ISN’T POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE... BUT THE KIDS REALLY DO LOVE HAVING YOUR FULL ATTENTION. THANKS!

                         Library Books

are due back ON MONDAYS.  Tuesdays are our library day.



                         Popcorn Friday


typically, most kids do not get popcorn or candy every friday.  kinder kids often don’t understand this at first... but they’ll get the hang of it.


some special things to know...

the things they sell are not always available, sometimes they run out...

the list of things that they sell also typically varies a bit throughout the year...

but there are always a couple of things available for a quarter.


the popcorn and candy are delivered to our room on Fridays right before dismissal time. this makes friday afternoons very hectic. if you happen to know that you’ll always be here on friday afternoons and you’d like to come in and help with handing stuff out please let me know. I’d love to have someone for the last 15 or 20 minutes of class every friday!

we also do prizes for bunny money every friday afternoon... so if someone wanted to be a prize box mom that would be great, too!!


                  September HOMEWORK late NOW:

please return your child’s homework folder and the completed September Reading log. None of the other homework pages are required to be turned in.

 

                special book box homework due ASAP

i would like each child to make a special book box now that they have their three bears book to start it off. TWO, MAYBE MORE, SPECIAL books will be coming home in october:

A JACK-O BOOK...

A NOCTURNAL ANIMAL BOOK

please make a box with your child and then send me a photo jpg of your child with his/her special book box. thanks!

                             memory books

the school does do a memory book. our school photos are in it, and each class gets a page in the book.

i do a memory book just for our class. last year I made one through shutterflys yearbook program.


if you’d like to see last years class memory book, this is the link:

11-12 Memory book


last year some people bought the school memory book and our class memory book... and some people just bought our class one. Other people didn’t purchase any book. i just wanted you to be aware of the differences and that our all day class does have its own book each year.

The 11-12 book cost $32.00 and was 52 pages, just FYI. you can see on ein my classroom if you like.
