What a great week it was! In our Beginning of the Year Study we finished studying about when things happen at school by comparing our day to a story about a little boy. We then started studying about who works at our school. We got to meet several people that work at our school through a movie that we interviewed different staff members. Ou movie stared; Mrs. Finnley (principal), Mrs. Mutchie (school cordinator), Ms. Janel (nurse tech), Ms. Deb (secretary), Mrs. Muller (school social worker), and Ms. Sidney (nutrition services). We also had our fantastic janitors come talk to us! Mr. Gary came to the morning class and Ms. Michelle came to the afternoon. We appreciate everything all of these valuable staff members do for our classroom! Next week will be our last in this study and then we will move on to our Tree Study.
In Second Steps we have been working really hard learning how to share and play fair with our friends. We now how to tap a friends shoulder say their name and then give them a toy or ask for a toy. We practiced sharing, trading and taking turns with our toys and activities. Please click on the link below to see the Home Link about how to continue this learning at home.
Please take some time to visit our Solicitations tab under the Calendar above to see events for this year and add to your calendar. You will notice that we changed how we are participating in conferences this year. There is an option to come for a socialization, instead of a meeting. We will have plenty of time to talk about goals and how students are doing at our home visits. We want to make this time a little more fun! We hope to see you all there at these fun events!!!
You have probably seen a lot of information coming out about Pyrtle Walk-a-Thon. This is a wonderful event that is held each year to raise money for our PTO. This money is used to fund many things at Pyrtle. One of the big ones is teacher allocations. This allows every grade level to purchase things that will enrich students classroom learning experiences. Last year we used our funds to purchase pumpkins for our fall social and many toys to enrich our studies. See the PTO Facebook post below. Since the Walk-a-Thon is held during a PLC day we will walking the day before. You are welcome to come join us walk a lap or 2 around the walking trail. The AM class will be walking at 10:20 and the PM class walking time is TBD (PM will receive an email when this time is figured out this week) on Monday, September 23rd.
