Quarter 2 Clubs

The first week of our in-person, small groups went fabulously! It was so wonderful to see some of you all the past few days! Thank you for making it so successful.

Please, see the attached club subscription options for Quarter 2. To sign-up for the club options, simply email me (afallon@pointeschools.org) and we will contact you to arrange payment. The “suggested grades” provide a guideline for families. Any student is able to sign-up for the club, regardless of grade. Sign-up must be done by Friday, October 2nd to allow time to purchase the supplies.

Thank you Readers!

Our Annual Read-A-Thon was such an amazing success! Thank you all for doing such a great job reading at home. Although all of the Panthers did a phenomenal job reading, the readers who read the most from each class won a book of their choice from the fair. Great job, Panthers!

On Friday, our Panthers dressed-up as some of their favorite storybook characters and they looked outstanding. We had everyone from Alexander Hamilton to The Lonely Astronaut! Book prizes were raffled off to all of the kiddos who participated! Thank you for making last week such a success!

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, Panthers! I would love to hear about all of the unique and fun ways you will be celebrating this important day so please share, share, share!

I began my own Earth day adventures with our Morning Meeting where I read The Krayon Kids: Going Green written by Karen Marquez Morales and illustrated by Walter Policelli.

Ms. Marques was suppose to be visiting our campus next week to share her books with our kiddos in person. Although we will not be able to enjoy the author event this year, we will certainly try to have her come in the future!

Thank you, Ms. Marquez for allowing us the privilege of reading your wonderful books and we hope to schedule another event with you soon! Please, check out the Krayon Kids website for more information on Ms. Marquez’ books and lots of great resources! Here is a direct link to a free Krayon Kids activity book provided by the author. 

Great Resources

Busy Week Announcements!

This week is filled with excitement… and from my understanding lots of potential rain! Because of our wet weather forecast, the Kinder and First grade field to the World Wildlife Zoo will be rescheduled. Keep an eye out for updates on the new date!

There are no more clubs (including Talent Show practice) for this week. Sign-up for 4th quarter clubs will begin during Spring Break!

Make sure to bring all of those hard-earned Panther Bucks for our Quarter 2 Swap Shop on Thursday afternoon.

Friday will be our third 4A Day of the year, Arts Explosion, so please make sure your kiddo wears their class shirt or color! If you would like to come assist with any of our artsy stations, please let me know!
