The ROCKSTARS Weekly News
August 28, 2017

**Please refer back to last week's newsletter if you missed anything. 

Bus Riders: If your child is a bus rider, please be sure that he/she wears their bus lanyard every day when getting on the bus.  Thanks so much for your help in this.

Forms:  Parent Information:  Please click below to fill this out if you haven’t already.  (I have 16 out of 22 filled out online) 

Click here to fill out the FORM for Mrs. Rose Evans

T-shirt Money:  Last call for T-shirt money this week.  Please let your child know if you are not planning to order so I can have a final count.  Thanks so much!  (I have 13 out of 22 turned in)

Remind:  Many of you have signed up for Remind!  I’m so happy!  Remind will be used for updates and reminders for a variety of class events.  You may sign up here:  To receive messages via text, text @roseev to 81010.  (I have 10 out of 22 signed up)

Instagram:  So far, the biggest hit for years has been our class Instagram Account.  I couldn’t be HAPPIER that so many of you have signed up and are enjoying viewing/commenting on the photos of our kids.  In case you have not joined yet and you’d like to know how…here is what you do.  Using your smartphone, go to your app store.  Download the Instagram app---it’s free.  Once you have created your account (if you are new to this) then, you can search for: roseevansrockstars

Once you’ve found roseevansrockstars, request to follow us.  From there, you will need to wait for me to sign on again to approve your request.  If I can recognize your username and determine who you are, then I will approve you.  However, if your username doesn’t correspond with your name, please email me and let me know.  That way, I’ll know who you are so I can approve your request to join.  
Should you encounter any problems or difficulties with any of this, please don’t hesitate to let me know and I’ll do my best to help.

Shoparoo:  Interested in helping Patronis Elementary earn some money?  All you have to do is scan your grocery and store receipts with a free app called: SHOPAROO You can sign up on your computer or smartphone with the link I am providing and begin scanning.  This is really easy and it works!  The competition gets pretty heated between our grade levels!  The more we all scan, the more money Shoparoo will send to our school!

Chorus Auditions:  If your child is interested in trying out for Chorus, the dates are August 28th and 29th after school beginning at 2:15.  Those students may walk directly to the Music Room from my classroom at dismissal.  PLEASE let me know which day your child is going to audition so that I can direct them to Mr. Kirkland’s room.   This is also very important so that I will know who is staying after school and not going home their regular way.  They may choose either day to audition.  Parents pick them up at the Music Room once auditions are over.  Mr. Kirkland sent home letters about this for students who requested them.  Please feel free to contact him if you have any questions.  J

Transportation Home:  I've had several of you email me about transportation changes.  Please, please, please call the Front Office to alert them of changes. I don't always check my email throughout the day. Also, that wouldn't help you out if I was ever absent or if your emails went to my Spam folder which happens more than you would think.  Thanks so much for your understanding on this matter!

Box Tops for Education: Please send in Box Tops for the P.E. department.

ELA: No Friday assessments this week due to MAP testing 

Math: Place Value (In your child's agenda, you will find log-ins for three different math websites that he/she can access at home for extra practice. 

1) Zearn (aligns with our Eureka Math program) 2) KhanAcademy (search for Eureka Math 4th Grade) 3) XtraMath (practice multiplication facts and earn certificates)  

Also your child can go to the Bay District Launchpad to access First in Math.

Science: Science Fusion-Unit 1

Social Studies:  Why Florida is a Great Place to Live

Poster:  Your child has been given a Poster to fill out.  This is due next Friday, September 8.  I would like the boys and girls to plan out their writing before working on the final copy.  This is definitely okay to work on as a family, but the boys and girls need to do the writing.
