Parent/Teacher Conferences - Jan. 31/Feb. 1:

This second set of parent teacher conferences will be led primarily by our students.  This method allows them the opportunity to evaluate their own effort and performance and provides them with a sense of ownership as it pertains to their lives as a student.

Valentine's Day:

I know it is a while off yet, but as with all things, it will be here before we know it! Here are some things that I would like to share with you about Valentine's Day in middle school.  We will not have a party!  If your son/daughter wants to bring in valentines of any sort (carts, treats, etc.) please make sure to include one for each student in the class.  If you would like to bring in a class treat on Feb. 14 please feel free to do so, or not! There are 15 students in our class.  If you would like a list, please email me and I will send one out for you. 

Book Reports

Reminder: Each student needs to do one book report per trimester.  The report for second trimester is due on February 7th.  Check out the link on the web page for more information.   It can be completed on the google doc and shared with me. 

***** If using google docs please go to file and make copy to get a form that you can change and submit. *****Thanks!

ART

We are finishing up our yarn art, working on a water color Eric Carle project and beginning a unit on shading!  

Spanish: From Ms. Greener: Chapter 1A is finally behind us and we can look towards 1B! Google Classroom this week, due the 23rd, delivers a balance between old and new. We'll look forward to learning even more adjectives and how we can continue to use them. 
Begin studying those new vocab words now in preparation for future quizzes later on!!

Save the Date:

The 9th Annual St. Paul Trivia Night is Saturday, February 16. Start gathering your teams of up to (8) people. Registration forms will be available in January.

Reading Outside of School:

Please encourage reading outside of school - 20 minutes of outside reading is a great amount of time to encourage.  Thank you!

 

If you have any question or need to talk to me please call the school at (262) 377-4659 or email me at Nichol.Kreger@splgrafton.org

God's Blessings!!!
