Time is flying in Room 15! This week marks our 3rd full week in school. Students in Room 15 are a great group of hard working students. We have already received 5 classroom hoorays for respectful, responsible behavior.
This week we have a lot going on. Picture day is Thursday September 28th. We will have our photos taken at 10:45. We also have our first Star Reward this Friday. Students who have earned 80% of their stars for returning homework and have displayed respectful, responsible behavior will participate in our Walking Field Trip to Awbrey Park. At 11:45 we will walk to the park and have a picnic lunch. Students will then have some time to enjoy the park. When we return to the school students will have the opportunity to watch a String Quartet perform.
This year 3rd-5th grade students have the opportunity to participate in the Eugene Symphony’s Strings Program. Students who participate in the program will receive Strings lessons for one hour, two times a week from a professional symphony musician. Instruments include the violin, viola, cello, and stand up bass. The cost of this program is $70 for the entire school year. This price includes the instrument. Scholarships are available for families who need them. Please contact me if you are interested in signing you child up. It is a first come first serve basis.
Lastly, if you have not signed up for ClassDojo, I highly encourage you to. This is a great way to see what is going on in the class, see student behavior points, and individual student portfolios. Contact me for your child’s unique code.
