If your child needs a bus pass because he/she is riding on a different bus or is getting off his/her regular bus at a different stop, please go to our website (www.eastvalleyelementary.com) and look down the left column under RESOURCES. Click on Bus Pass. Please fill out the bus pass completely and send it to school with your child to get Ms. Wacker's signature. If you forget to send it, you may email it to Mrs. Beth in the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax it to 770-578-7216 by 10:00 a.m. Thanks for your help in getting your child to the right place in the afternoon.
Read, Read, Read! The first daily homework book will go home with your child on August 22nd. Please have your child practice reading 20 minutes each day. If you feel the level is either too hard or too easy, then please contact me by email or a note in your child's orange communication folder. It is important that they read their homework book several times each night. They are responsible for returning it and taking a new book on their level the following morning. When your child starts to read longer books, you may keep the books for more than one night.
Please record the titles of the books your child has read to you. Record these in the Agenda.
The first weekly spelling list will be sent home in September. You will be given a Spelling Homework contract. This will provide a list of spelling activities for your child to choose from to practice using their weekly words.
The first grammar homework will be sent home in September. This grammar will be a review of what your child is learning in school.
Monday Math is sent home each Monday beginning early September. Your child's assignment will be in the "return to school Pocket" of their orange folder on Mondays. Please practice addition and subtraction facts at home. Thank you.
I am so excited to begin a new year! You will be able to get all the information on our class happenings here on my BLOG. My BLOG will be used to communicate my latest newsletters and important reminders.
