It was great to see those of you who were able to visit our Alien Invasion today!
Just a reminder that report cards are coming home today in Friday folders. There is another form in Friday folders titled “Home/School Compact.” It looks like it is from our Title 1 teachers; however, it is a school-wide compact. We are required to send it home because our school receives Federal funding and this is one of the requirements. Please sign the form and return it either during conferences, or when students return to school on November 27th.
I look forward to meeting with you!
This week we filled our jar! We voted and will have a movie afternoon next week. Once we decide which movie to watch, I will send home an update.
Not only do we have a classroom celebration in our future, but we also earned a schoolwide celebration! Tomorrow will be Superhero Day. What an exciting week we’ve had!
I just wanted to post a reminder that tomorrow (October 24) is picture retake day.
We have filled our jar again! On Wednesday, October 18, we will have a technology period! I will send home a letter with more information on Monday. Have a great weekend!
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.
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!

It’s hard to believe it’s the last week of school! It will be hard to say goodbye, but I am so excited for these amazing third graders to do great things in fourth grade.
Thank you for all of your support this year! I have loved working with each of your children.
Happy Spring! The sunshine and warm weather has made all of us Rigatonis happy.
On Thursday at our all-school meeting, we were so lucky to have Ted Scheu visit us at MBS. We heard some of his poetry and even got to write a poem as an entire school.
Ms. Burke then announced that we had filled Oscar! Today we had our all-school celebration, which was an extra recess.
In addition to earning a school-wide celebration, Rigatonis also filled our class jar. We voted on a class soccer game, which we will have sometime next week.
On Monday we will go to the Flynn to see Ty Defoe, an artist who shares Native American teachings through storytelling, dance, and music. Today, we had a special visitor from the Flynn come to our classroom. Together we discussed and explored some of what we will see on Monday. We danced and did some of our own storytelling with our classmates.
Happy Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
