Wise Owls Newsletter Sept. 18, 2017


Hi Parents,

I hope you had a great weekend and are enjoying the fresh rain which seems to be cleaning our air. Today the kids were rushing to the windows to listen to the thunder and watch the rain pour down….one would think they h.ad never seen rain before!

Tomorrow, Tues. September 19th we will be celebrating International Talk Like a Pirate Day! As part of our unit on maps and directionality, we will be celebrating Pirate Day! We will have pirate math, pirate reading, pirate writing, and we will work on our mapping skills while navigating with a compass rose.

**Please feel free to send your child dressed as a pirate! But, keep it simple! Use what you might already have around the house, a bandanna, a white shirt, a big belt, a homemade eye patch…no need to buy an extravagant costume.

Later this week we have our community field trip to West Linn on Thursday, Sept. 21. We are taking a walking tour of some of the local businesses as party of our study on communities and maps. We will depart Stafford at 9:00 (so parents that are coming with us, please arrive by 8:45 to Stafford) and return by 11:30. Please dress your child in good walking shoes and send them with a waterproof jacket. Your child will also need a packed lunch and a snack to eat while on the bus to and from the West Linn community.

Attached is a sign up for conferences. Please choose a first, second and third choice and return or email me back. I look forward to setting goals for the year with you about your child!

Have a great week! See all your little pirates tomorrow!

Ms. Wise
