Pink Slips/Missing Work
On Friday, students who were missing work from the first 2 weeks of school received pink slips.
As students are learning how to be a 5th grader- this process might take some time for some students. Students should start seeing the benefit of working hard during class time, and staying up to date with their homework each night so they do not get behind. Pink Slips are an immediate way for us both to see who needs more guidance with getting their work done and/or turning in their assignments.
Important Reminder of Pink Slip Process: Your child has until this Friday to turn the work in. I encouraged your children to get the work done this weekend so they don’t get more behind. When the work is done, students should fill out the rest of the pink slip, get a parent signature at the bottom, staple it to the assignment, and turn it in.
Get excited for our annual Jog-a-Thon this year on Friday, October 19th! Please read below about important dates and information regarding this fun event:
Pledge Packets went home on Friday. Students can get pledges from neighbors, friends, and family. Let’s get creative and spread the news about how great our school is!
The online PledgeStar option is described in the packet. Please refer to the pages in the packet for all the information regarding the Jog-a-Thon!
