It’s hard to believe a month of school has already passed! Here is some need-to-know information for the coming weeks.
This year will have a student teacher working in our classroom. His name is Nathan Merlin and he comes to us from Pacific University. From now until late January he will be with us once a week, primarily observing and becoming familiar with the class. From February through March he will leave us to teach at his middle school placement in Beaverton. In April he will return to us full-time for the rest of the school year and will do more teaching at that time. Nathan is currently a Sherwood resident and his fiancé is a teacher in Forest Grove. We are excited to have him in our class!
In addition to the homework log, you have started seeing the math Home Connections coming home as well. These assignments are designed to review what we are doing in class and sometimes will require parent involvement. Feel free to check work and offer suggestions for correction when needed. Usually, those will be due on Fridays along with the homework log.
Remember to check Friday Folders each week. The homework log will be in there along with other timely information. This week you will find information about school pictures which will be held on Thursday.
Finally, I put together a short Fun Run video that you can find on the class website. I didn’t take as many pictures this year due to some rain drops, but we still had fun!
