Book orders

Book orders are finally online. If you want to order some scholastic books, you can now do so online!

The code word is Kertamus and the password is Kertamusclass.

Also, reading calendars are due, so please return them.

And finally.... the BIG class project is almost due!!! If you have not heard about the BIG County report then ask your child about it because it is worth a lot of points!!!!

As always, thanks for your support!

Hello Parents-

We are now back on track, full force! There are a few things I would like to bring up:

#1) Mrs. Kertamus is still working on getting the online scholastic ordering to work. Hopefully it will be up soon!
#2) Oct. 28th: Book report due, mystery cereal box
#3) Make sure students read 30 minute per night... Mrs. Kertamus will collect the reading from September this Friday.

We also have the Halloween party coming up!!!! Rachon Duran and I have some wonderful ideas coming on board for this party! We are excited to do it. We will need a couple of volunteers, as well as parents willing to bring things (trust me, they will be easy!) Please post a note here if you can help and I will contact you with that information!

Thanks for your continued support! Let's have a SPOOKTASTIC month!

Isn't technology wonderful??? You can now place Scholastic Book orders online! Mrs. Kertamus will be sending home the details, but we just wanted to make you aware of this!

Order books... support the school... it is a good thing (as Oprah would say!)

A shout out for an Electric Pencil Sharpener!!!

Hello parents!

Does anyone have an extra Electric Pencil Sharpener that you would be willing to donate to the 4th grade class? We are a few weeks into the year and the one in the classroom broke! :( Does anyone have one, or know of a place where to get a good price on one?

Thanks parents!

Ok.. so bear with me!!!!

This is my first time being a room mom... I know... I know...

So, if any of you know me, I am not the most creative joe on the block (that is why I am happy to have you guys to help me!!!)

Mrs. Kertamus sent home a bunch of papers and one of them was a parent volunteer paper. I appreciate all the responses that I have gotten! Thank you so much because without your guys' help... I could not do it without you guys!!!

Now... as part as room mom duties, I need to set up a calendar of parent volunteers. I am getting more information from Mrs. Kertamus, but what she needs help with is during the day to help with math, reading, and also just general stuff in the classroom. I would like to get people's opinions on what they would like to do to help, such as if a set day a week would work for you, or if once a month, etc... give me ideas!! :)

And remember, studies have shown that the more parent involvement in the classroom, the happier the classroom is and the happier the teacher is as well! :) (I don't know if that is a true study... I just made it up, but I know for a fact that it is true!!!)


Take care once again!
