Proulx Newsletter 9/26-30/2016

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 4 out of 37.  This week was one filled with new things, and many small successes. One thing that we accomplished was to access our online Go Math resources.  We also worked in Google Classroom (finished 2 assignments).  Students are excited as we move forward in Social Studies.  Their Island Map ideas are great!

Please remember our first field trip is coming for Science (Tryon Creek), so be looking for emails in regard to field trip procedures.  Classroom volunteers have begun coming into the classroom.  All volunteers should be hearing from our Room Moms, Mrs. Minnie Cooper and Mrs. Julia Lyman.  Thank you parents for your faithful, support!

We are generating ideas for our Class Community Service Project.  If you have ideas, or would like to help us when we do our HandsOnGreaterPortland Greeting Cards for Meals on Wheels, please let me know.

Let's make this fourth week of school a great one!
