Key Stallions

Congratulations to all of my Key Stallions who were recognized this morning during our first assembly.  It was impossible for me to only recognize two students so I decided to celebrate all my Cowboys and Cowgirls today.  Look for a Mighty Fine Certificate in your child's backpack and a cute picture on Twitter.  Thank you to the families that brought in supplies for our Science explorations next week.  You are the best !!

Fall Conferences

Thank you to all the parents who completed the homework assignment.  Your letters provide valuable information for me as I begin planning for our Fall Conference.  Please check your email for the link to sign up for a Fall Conference time.

We have been learning together for 4 weeks already !  My Cowboys and Cowgirls are doing an excellent job of following school-wide expectations in the classroom, hallways and cafeteria. Once in a while a student needs a reminder or warning to make the best choices for learning. I will never assign a consequence to the whole class.  If a student has to ‘drop a clip’ in the cafeteria that results in a yellow in the classroom.  It is a common expectation among the First Grade team that a student who has dropped a color in the classroom walks two laps during recess.  It takes about 2 minutes out of the 20 minute recess time we are allotted. I am always trying to reward students with table points, individual stars and class stars.

Club Night and PTA

Thursday night is Club Information night at Sommer Elementary.  If you are interested in your child participating in a club this year I highly recommend attending the meeting.  The club spots fill up very quickly.  The PTA will be meeting at 6:00 in the cafeteria.
