I hope that everyone enjoyed the long weekend celebrating labor day. Thank you for joining us on Tuesday evening for Curriculum Night.
This month is full of different activities for our students and families, if you have questions about dates, always check our website first. We try to keep the website up to date with upcoming events. Each grade level also sends a weekly newsletter that has specific information pertaining to their grade level.
This week I stopped by Ms. Holloman’s 5th grade classroom. She was working with the students on reading strategies with an emphasis on staying tuned into their reading and avoiding “autopilot”. The students gave examples of ways they could check with themselves as a reader to ensure they could envision the characters and the action of the story. After their discussion, they were sent on their way to independently read. The next day, Ms. Holloman stopped me to tell me a story about one of the students in her classroom. The little girl walked into class and stopped Ms. Holloman before she even made it to her seat. She proudly told Ms. Holloman about her reading for the evening and that she did not read in “autopilot.” She then pulled three strips of paper out to show Ms. Holloman questions and reflections about her reading. It made Ms. Holloman’s day to see her enthusiasm as a reader! A moment that Ms. Holloman will not forget with this student, I am sure!
Have a wonderful weekend!
