with Mrs. Boeh and Mrs. Tharman October 12, 2012 We are beginning to spell several words! We can now spell and sound out: log, hog, hot, tot, got, and lot! Please continue to work with your child on the sounds that the letters make and have them spell some words for you. In math, we have been working on patterns! What a GREAT week we had! Contest Time… BOX TOPS Self-Control The PTO is sponsoring a Box Tops contest among the grade levels. In case you didn’t know, each box top is worth 10¢ to our school. The contest starts on Monday, October 15th and goes until Wednesday, October 31st! The winning grade level will win an ice cream sundae party! Please send in as many box tops as you can! The Grade School StuCo has a character trait for each month. This month’s character trait is self-control. In honor of this, they are asking the students to wear red every Wednesday in October.
