Good Evening Parents,

Hope everyone had a fantastic  summer weekend with their families and friends and are ready for another productive week.

Your children have adjusted to the daily schedule and look forward to P.E. and the three recess breaks. They eat their snacks during 1st and 3rd recess and are remembering to use the facilities and drink water during those times. Lots of the students bring their lunch and only a few are eating lunch in the cafeteria. That’s a good thing because sometimes the cafeteria line can be long wait.

This week we will be having our VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) teachers on Monday a.m and Tuesday p.m. We will be starting the “About Me” presentations  and continue to learn about being a good reader and writer.

Homework was given on Friday and only the cover page needs to be signed and  turned in the following Friday. If there is a question or concern, please don’t hesitate to  send me a message on class DoJo or note in their yellow homework folder.

Thank you for your support

Here are some important dates

8/2 -PTA Meeting @ 5:30

8//4- Spirit Day- Wear Husky Gear

8/8- APEX Kick-Off Assembly @ 8:45

Good Evening Parents,

I hope everyone had a restful weekend.

Your child should have brought home the art project in which they are representing themselves using the  paper buddy. Be as creative as you can and complete the minibook pages.  Have fun. Project is due on Friday, July 28.

Also, this week your child  can log onto Raz Kids and Pipo and explore what these programs have to offer.  I added their names this weekend so let me know if  encounter any problems. Be sure to enter through the Hedenkamp Blog @ Hedenkampwordpress.com and scroll down to student links.

This week I will continue to review rules and introduce procedures.  Also, I will assess the students  so I will be able to gain insight into their learning and their understanding so that I may meet their instructional needs.

In addition, students will meet their new ELD (English Development Teacher) and obtain  instruction in English. They will meet Monday thru Thursday from 8:45-9:10

Please remember to view the Hedenkamp blog for all the upcoming events and important information about our school.
