This week's checklist

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! 
General team announcements and reminders:
* Thank you to everyone who attended and who supported Heritage Night!  It was so much fun!
* There is no school November 22nd-24th.  
* Please check Powerschool often to keep track of your child's grades and things they may be missing.  If you have not gotten your password for Powerschool yet, you can stop by the office before 4:00 to pick it up.  They also have access to it during school.  

* Thank you to Camden R. for our quote this week, "All for one, one for all."
* My homeroom will be walking to Estes on Tuesday morning to meet our reading buddies, please be sure your child wears comfortable shoes and warm clothes.
* We will be creating a class anthology this year, (thank you Molly for this idea!), that will hold all of our amazing stories, poetry, and artwork.  You will hear more about this soon!
* We have started working with a website called No Red Ink to practice parts of speech, grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. High school English teachers are using this in their classes as well to prepare their students for the ACT and SAT.  It is a lot of fun and I think it will be a great benefit to all of our students. You can check it out at
* Other things we will be doing on this short week will include presenting the amazing suitcase projects that were turned in last week and enjoying hearing about things that are special to us in our 2nd Show and Tell of the year!  For this Show and Tell there is a digital portfolio component that your child needs to complete by November 30th.

Don't concern yourself with things that done concern you. If it's not your business, don't make it your burden. -Toby Mac
We too often take on things as our burdens that we shouldn't even be a part of. This holiday season, let's be mindful of minding or own business. 

This past week our 6th grade math team meet and decided on some non-negotiable expectations for math assignments of all kinds. 
Please ask your child what these are and why each of them are so important. (They are posted on the classroom board.)
