Book Orders... You can now do them online!!!

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!

Welcome Parents!!!
