    Incentive and Award Ceremony
    Our second trimester award ceremony is happening on Friday, March 13th.  Report cards should be going home Friday, 3/6 or Monday, 3/7. Parents, please keep an eye out for them in your child's backpack or Friday Folder.  Our second trimester incentive is going to be Friday, March 27.  I will be sending home notices to all students about incentive, as well as invitations to those students who will be receiving awards at our Award Ceremony this Friday, 3/6 in your child's Friday Folder.  
     
    March Madness
    Congratulations to the following sixth grade students from our class to represent our school in our March Madness basketball team: Aidan Spencer, Josy Murillo, Ryan Rojas, and David Anaya. I can't wait to see our winning team in action! Students play their games at Royal Oak Middle School the week of March 2-March 6.  Finals will be the following week on Monday, March 9th at Charter Oak High School. Here is the schedule for this week:
    Monday: 4:15 vs Willow
    Tuesday: 3:30 vs Badillo
    Wednesday: Bye-no game
    Thursday: 3:30 vs Glen Oak
    Friday: 3:30 vs Washington

    Business Day

    Our next business day will be at the end of Trimester 3.  I will post date closer to time.  As always, students can keep their business and their partner or choose to change their business and/or their partner.  If they choose to change in any way, they will have to complete a new business licenses and get their new business approved by me.  Parents, rememeber that all students must participate in a business on Business Day to participate in the activity.  No more than two students can run a business.  Businesses can be a game or a craft of some kind.  There is NO FOOD businesses allowed.  The only food that will be at business day will be a prize for games.  All businesses need to be approved by parents and teacher no later than Wednesday before Business Day.  If your child does not turn in a business license by that date, they will not be able to participate in the activity. On the day of business day, students need to arrive to school that day with all their supplies. Parents, please support me with this and help teach your child to be responsible.  Also, This is an activity for students only, so no parents are allowed to come in and shop, sorry parents.  Lastly, parents please remember if your child is not current with their Autobiography Chapters they will not be able to participate and will use this time to catch up per our sixth grade code of conduct that was signed by you and your child at the beginning of the year.    

     

    Autobiography

    We are coming close to completion on our Autobiography project. This is a grade level project, so any late chapters or projects will lose 10 points per day late (weekends count too).  Chapters are always due by 8:00 on Wednesday.  The completed Autobiography is due on Wednesday, March 4th.    

     

    Pali Institute 

    Pali will be sending out an email to you with their medical release form probably next week (week of March 9th), so keep an eye on your inbox and spam folders.  This is the only paperwork/permission slip you will need to fill out for them.  They will also send you a link to pre-order clothing for your child if you chose.  I send home a materials needed list from Pali.  I encourage you to take advantage of the winter sales going on now.  Another idea that is a little cheaper, if you don't know anyone to borrow clothes from, is Facebook buy/sell groups.  I have bought winter clothes for my son this way for great deals.  

     

    Fundraiser

    Ultra Fun Run Fundraiser is going on now.  I encourage all my students to participate.  The money earned from this fundraiser goes to help pay for our buses for Pali.  Our goal as a class is to raise $25 a student. Every student who rasies a minimun of $25 will earn a bounce house/ obstacle course party right after their fun run.  I would love for all to particpate.    

     

    3 Rules of Attendance

    I know this year's flu season has been a bad one, but here are three simple rules to remember when it comes to your student's attendance: 

    1. Arrive on time. School starts at 8:00 a.m.

    2. Come to school everyday prepared to learn.

    3. Stay until school is dismissed- 2:20 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and 1:35 on Wednesday.

     

     

    As always, thank you for partnering with me this year; furthermore, helping in paving a path of success for your sixth grader!
