Spirit Days & Field Trip Reminder!

This Wednesday is our second trip to a live performance!  We’ll be traveling to the Flynn Theater for “Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief”  I’m SO excited!  Kiddos do not need to arrive early for this one!  We’ll leave MBS at 8:40 and be back in time for lunch!

Spirit Days for October!

October 24 – School Color Day!   Please have kiddos wear the school colors!

October 28 – Inside Out Day!  Everyone is encouraged to wear their clothing inside out!  (Oh my.)

Science Quiz Next Friday!

We spent some time today in science labeling our cell organelles and solidifying in our minds what their jobs are!  Below is a link to another great video from Harvard!  Kiddos will have their first science test next Friday.  The learning target for this is to know the organelles of a cell, what their basic jobs are, and what are the 3 differences between a plant and animal cell.

Your scientist was strongly encouraged to take home his/her science binder over the weekend to begin studying!  If s/he did, please remind them to bring it back for Monday!  They’ll need it!

This Week’s Mountain Language

Due to our field trip tomorrow, many kiddos didn’t finish their Mountain Language and requested the board be available to them at home.  This is my best attempt!

Thursday – Arrive at MBS at 8:00 a.m.

This is just a reminder that grownups need to get their kiddos to school by 8:00 a.m. on Thursday!  We have our Stowe theater performance and will be leaving the MBS grounds at 8:15!   Kiddos can come right down to our classroom!

Flynn Field Trips and Companion Workshops!

Just a reminder that a few of our kiddos (only 4) still need to turn in their universal field trip permission slips!  Please do so as quickly as possible, your child has a new form in his/her backpack tonight.

In addition, we’re thrilled to announce the Flynn Theater is funding us for two FREE companion workshops!  Woohoo!  We’ll have artists in the classroom on Monday, October 6th, and Friday, Sept. 26th!  Thank you, Flynn Theater!

Lastly, I am currently accepting checks made out to MBS in the amount of $27.50 to cover the ticket and transportation fees for both shows!  Thanks!
