Important Announcements and Reminders

Our jar is full! Due to Rigatonis being safe, respectful, and responsible, we have met our goal within the first few weeks of school! Our classroom celebration will be pajama day this Friday, September 22.

A reminder to families that Open House is this Thursday, September 21, from 6:30-7:30. I look forward to seeing you all!

If your student has not handed in their Flynn permission slip, please send that in as soon as possible! Our field trip will be on October 2. If you would like me to send home an extra permission slip, please send me an email.

Our Monarch Caterpillar, Oreo

On Monday I brought in a caterpillar that was found in my garden last weekend. As a class, we decided his name would be Oreo. Oreo was crawling around and fattening up all day yesterday. When we came in this morning, he had turned into a chrysalis! I set up an iPad behind his cage before I went home last night, which took a time-lapse of him creating his chrysalis. Enjoy the video below!


Our School Year Begins!

Happy September! It has been such a great start to our year together. This week we have been focusing on the routines, rules, and expectations here at Malletts Bay School and in our classroom. We’ve explored our classroom library, learned about our classroom jobs, played some partner math games, and started brainstorming people and places to write about in our writer’s notebook. You should see our classroom jar so far! I can’t believe how many chips we’ve already earned for being safe, respectful, and responsible. I’m so excited to see where the weeks and months ahead take us. I can’t wait! Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. See you on Tuesday!
