5th Grade – Chai

October Newsletter

Thank you for your support.  We have been busy acclimating to our new routine, establishing the classroom schedule and our behavior expectations.

Picture Day
School picture day is Wednesday, October 10th. Students MUST be in their school uniform for pictures. No Non-Uniform Coupons may be used this day.

Fall Festival
Our Fall Festival will be held on October 31st. I am planning fun activities before our annual Trunk or Treat at 1:00pm. Make sure your student comes to school with a bag to hold all their treats. More details and a sign-up sheet are coming home soon!

Acceptable Halloween Costumes
Scary costumes are not to be worn to school. A mask can be worn during Trunk-or-Treat, but not in class. Small amounts of face paint are allowed; full face paint is not.

Character Counts!
Congratulations, Henry Gunberg! Henry was acknowledged for his observed compassion toward others during the month of September.

Kalamazoo Art Institute
Our first field trip this year will be to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (KIA). This field trip is free for students and volunteer drivers! We will be going on October 30th. Your student will have the opportunity to do an ArtLab hands-on workshop. Students will spend an hour in the studio making art with a professional artist and an hour touring the facility. More information will be coming home soon!

Drivers are needed!!!! Please contact me with your interest in driving:)

Homework
All unfinished work becomes homework (HW), and is due the next day! Weekly spelling words should be practiced every night at home.

Drop-off and Pick-up
School starts every day at 8:20 A.M.  Students are not allowed in the building until 8:00 A.M.  School dismisses every day at 3:30 P.M.  To help the flow of traffic, please pull all the way forward. Wait in your vehicle, we will bring your child to you.
