Hi, everyone! You may have noticed in our school newsletter mention of 3rd Grade Parent Night this upcoming Wednesday at 5:30. This is an event that is being hosted by the 3rd Grade Teaching Team, in our typical 3rd grade classrooms. The topics covered will be specific to the typical 3rd grade curriculum with typical 3rd grade students. Although you are more than welcome to attend, I think you will find the majority of the presentation will not be applicable to your student in the High Ability Program. Mr. Burch will host a Science Parent Night specifically for our HAP families later this year, closer to the time of the Science Fair. As always, please feel welcome to contact me if you have questions. Thanks!
We will be going to the butterfly garden tomorrow afternoon. You may want to make sure that your child has sunscreen and bug spray before they leave for the day. They may also want to bring their gloves because they will be weeding and putting down mulch.
Just a reminder… all of the 3rd and 4th grade students at Mt. Tabor will be attending a free field trip to the Muhammad Ali Center this week. Here is what you need to know:
- 3rd Grade will be attending on Thursday, 8-22-19.
- We could use a couple more parents if anyone is interested in joining us. Mrs. Reavis MUST know by Monday, if you’d like to attend. Parents will have to meet us there, as well as pay the $10.00 group rate – the trip is only free for students and school staff.
- 4th Grade will be attending on Friday, 8-23-19.
- Each trip is scheduled for 9:30-12:30.
- We’ll leave Mt. Tabor around 9:00 and return around 1:00.
- We will be taking our lunches on this trip.
As always, please feel welcome to contact us if you have questions or would like additional information regarding this trip. Direct email is the best form of communication, as comments on the blog sometimes get hung up in our spam filter.
Picture Day is Monday, August 19th. You may order online, or return the order form that was sent home this past week. All students will get their picture taken (for our yearbook and class composites,) even if you decide not to purchase photos.
Several parents and grandparents have asked about another butterfly garden work day in order to get control of weeds. Our next day will be this Tuesday, Aug. 20 from 10:30-12. Hannah Railey will be the parent volunteer that will show others what needs to be completed.
Please email Mr. Burch at email@example.com if you would be willing to help. Thanks
Sarah Riley has graciously said that she would be willing to help coordinate extra help in the butterfly garden. She was kind enough to come in after school last week so I could show her our most pressing needs.
We REALLY need help with weeding before we get mulch in and the mulch should be coming in within the next week or two. She will be in the garden Tuesday, Aug. 13 from 10:30-12 in the morning. We would appreciate your help in a quiet kid free environment 🙂 Please email Mr. Burch firstname.lastname@example.org if you can attend so I can let Sarah know.
