No way! Thanksgving is NEXT WEEK?!?!?! We've gotta get busy!

I am happy to report that all continues to be going very well in F3. The kids are GREAT, and are currently taking quite a leadership role in the school. They have been scouring their homes for pennies; bringing in more pennies for the penny harvest than any other intermediate classroom.

What else? The kids have gone throughout the school to collect goods from Maple kids and their families to donate for our care package project. The big day will be on November 20th when we will putting together care packages for troops currently serving in Afghanistan. Please let me know if you can come in to volunteer that day-- from 10:30am to 12 noon.

What else? F3 has just gotten through their third unit test in Math and with few exceptions, most students did an excellent job. We're moving on to a different curriculum now until January called "Connected Math Project". This math unit returns to learning about number sense, specifically factors and multiples.

I really look forward to meeting with all of you to talk about your child's progress in school. Please let me know if the time I've given you doesn't work. I have some wiggle room and may be able to fit you in to a better time slot.
