Tomorrow is the Great American Eclipse! We will be doing eclipse related activities throughout the day. When it is time for the eclipse to occur, which will be around 2:30, we will live stream the eclipse as well as be able to see how it becomes dark with our classroom windows.
If you are checking your child out early, my plan is to have everyone who is leaving early to pack up around 11:00 am. That way, when they are called down to the office, they can just grab their backpack and head on out. Please be aware that our lunch time is 11:44 am to 12:14 pm. This might be the only time where check out could be difficult.
I received a few emails last week regarding family journals. They come home every Friday and inside you should find a letter from your child that tells about their week at school. Read the letter and write back to them. In the past, parents have written about something they did over the weekend, how proud they are of their child, or responded to their child’s letter. As the year goes on, the letters will become longer and it will be easier to write back. :)
Here is what we have going on this week:
