Hi Families!

We filled our classroom jar, and have voted for Technology Day! This will take place on Friday (2/9) afternoon. A reminder that Rigatonis may bring in their own device, but will also have school Chromebooks available.

Hi Families!

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!

Ms. Riggs

Celebration News

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!

Genius Hour

On Friday we had our first genius hour! Each student was given tape, a blank piece of paper, and could use colored pencils, markers, or crayons. Their goal was to create a piece of art with different types of geometric shapes. It was so interesting to see what they came up with!

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.
