Newsletter: Week 2 of 37

First Week of School!
September 11 - 15, 2017

   We had a great first week of school! It was great to meet so many parents during Back to School Night on Friday. If you were unable to attend Back to School Night, please click here to read about some items I discussed. There are also additional topics in the link that I didn't have time to discuss, so everyone please take a moment to read it. If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom and/or chaperone on a field trip, click here. If you have further questions, feel free to let me know! Make it a great week, everyone!

Person of the Week

Mr. Riedl! (He will give an example presentation to the class)

Topics to Talk About at Home

The main topic of conversation this weekend should have been about how to keep track of their homework. I asked the students to talk to their families and decide if they prefer using a monthly calendar or an assignment book. Please discuss Mr. Riedl's homework page and what method might work best for them. The students are always welcome to switch to the other one mid-year.
