The ROCKSTARS Weekly News
September 5, 2017

Hurricane Irma from Bay District Schools: Bay District Schools is closely monitoring the developments associated with Hurricane Irma.  As the track, forecast and impact on Florida become more reliable later this week we will update parents of any changes via IRIS, social media and through the mainstream media.  Parents, please ensure that your contact information is correct in Parent Portal so that you receive these important updates.

Behavior: Now that we are into our routine, I am spending a great deal of time redirecting the boys and girls from talking, talking, talking.  Several are having great difficulty with listening and following directions.  This is taking time away from our classroom instruction and disrupting the learning of others.  Please speak to your child at home and ask he/she which personal choices can be made to help keep us on track in the classroom.

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: Vocabulary, Comprehension and Spelling Test on Friday

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 this 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.
