The Week of October 9, 2017

Are you ready for another awesome week at Ellis?  I have a lot of lessons planned to share with you including cloud identification, decimal & fraction computation, World War 2, and author's purpose...just to name a few!  Please remember to finish your follow-up work after each of your lessons.  Your required assignments will include your weekly Google Classroom Journal, based upon a current event article.  You will also have a vocabulary quiz Friday.  Please write your assigned words in your workplan placket Monday morning.  As always, structure your time so you can achieve your 30 minute weekly goal of online www.tenmarks.com practice and weekly Greek & Latin root work requirement. 

There are a number of special things happening this week, as well:

1.  Monday is "Weather Hat Day!   We will take this day to collect donations for the American Montessori Society's REBUILD YOUR SCHOOL FUND, to support the rebuilding of Montessori schools that have been damaged by recent hurricanes.  Please consider sending in a donation. Also, please feel free to decorate a hat as your favorite weather or weather related book AND wear to school!

2.  Parent/Teacher conferences start this week.  I look forward to meeting with everyone to talk about all the progress that has been made so far this year.  Please sign up for a conference time HERE if you have not done so already.  

3.  The PTA Yankee Candle fundraiser continues this week. Please return all orders by Friday, October 13.

4.  I will be attending meetings all day Tuesday.  There will be a substitute leading the class while I am out.  We've been practicing hard to follow procedures, so I'm expecting an exemplary report from the substitute teacher upon my return.

5.  Like always, signed progress reports are due Monday morning.

Have an awesome weekend,
Mr. Trent
