Good Morning.  I hope that everyone had a restful weekend.  Our turnout on Saturday for the Wake Forest Science Fair Workshop was good!  The students were each assigned a mentor.  They were walked through the process of experimentation and brainstormed project ideas with their mentors.  It was a great day!

Teachers, Mallie will pick up the Gift-Card List tomorrow.  Sign up no later than this afternoon as Jennifer will be taking the sign-ups down.

Next week, you are scheduled to do parent conferences. You are required to conference with all parents.  Many of you got a head start on this and have been gettting your conferences in ahead of time.  Please remember that you can be flexible and get them done throughout this week and next and may even have phone conferences as long as you document and discuss progress.  The reason for conferencing is to keep parents abreast of the student's progress throughout the year.  If you are planning to do them this week, you can ask Mrs.Martinez, Mr. T and Miss Almaguer to assist you but they do not work the teacher workdays next week. Ms. Barger and Dr. Madison can also assist if you need help with transportation, etc.. Please plan ahead.  Let me know if you have questions.

Would love your feedback as to how we can utilize money for reading incentives. Home Moravian has set aside some funding for us to use to buy books for kids, parent reading classroom nights, etc.  You may have more creative ideas.  There is about $2000. total.  Let me know what you think:)  Your opinion is important.

Try to keep your routine as normal and structured as possible.  Children are already getting Halloween Fever.  If you do have a special snack on Wednesday, please do it at lunch time.  Thank you.
