This week the students will be reading the weekly story Schools Around the World. (Lesson 13) The class will be working on main idea, details, and using a dictionary. The students will also be going over quotation marks, and ee and ea words.

Penny Wars start Monday, December 11th , until Friday, December 15th . This is a great way to help our Student Council and PTO with your spare change. The students love to help our class win by bringing in pennies for our class, and “bombing” other classes with quarters, dimes, and nickels!

The district of Highland will be having the first ever elementary iMovie contest! I sent home a sheet Friday with all the details. This is a voluntary contest. For more information, contact Erica Gomez at

STAR Reading and Math testing will be next Monday & Tuesday, December 18th and 19th. If possible, please try to make sure the students get a good night sleep and breakfast if possible! I will send a REMIND notice Sunday!

I will be sending home a voluntary parent teacher conference form home this week to set up appointments before break. Come on in and meet with me about your child’s progress so far this year. Appointments will be on a first come, first serve basis. Please have your two desired appointment times back to me by THURDAY this week, so I can have a schedule to you by Friday.

Lastly, our classroom Christmas party is Thursday, December 21st. The last day of school before Christmas break is December 22nd.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me. My email is:
