Weekly Update: LOTS of Exciting and Important Info!

on February 16, 2012

I have a lot of important updates this week, so this update is going to be informational. Please take some time to read through this information, since there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on!


First of all, thank you so much to everyone who took the time to make it out to conferences this week!  As always, it was truly a pleasure to get to meet with and talk with you.  I always enjoy taking time to talk about your amazing children.


Do not miss the post below this one about our new DonorsChoose project!  This has great potential to be a very exciting opportunity for our classroom! http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/proposal.html?id=751383&verify=-652259045&challengeid=202090


Edfest is just around the corner!  On Saturday, February 25 is Edison’s biggest fundraiser.  The money we fundraise makes a huge  difference in our school and classroom.  The funds we raised during fall festival allowed us to buy Chairback Buddies for our classroom, and we still have enough to help fund a trip or get more resources (details to come). This fundraiser is even bigger, so I very much encourage you to come!  There will be a silent auction, and I will be one of the autcion items.  I am pairing up with a 5th grade teacher (Mr. Allen), to offer a hike or a ski trip with a group of students.  It would be very fun if some of the Room 125 kids could join…so come bid on me:) Edfest if a fun way to support our school. I’ll be there! Check it out and purchase tickets here: http://edison.dpsk12.org/tickets-for-sale-edfest-fundraising-auction-saturday-feb-25th/.

Horseback Riding

Starting March 1, we will be going on horseback riding field trips!  Thanks to funding from the DPS A to Z Grant and Edison’s PTA, we will get to attend 8 horseback riding sessions at Acres of Opportunity Ranch (this is where the class went last year).  This is a great opportunity to get out of the school and work on social and communication skills!  Weather depending, we will be visiting the Ranch on the following Thursdays:

March 1, 8, 22

April 12, 19, 26

May 3, 10

Please visit the Ranch’s website, fill out, and turn in the “Release Liability Form” and the “Medical Emergency Authorization” and turn in to me by next Friday, February 24.  If you need a printed copy of these forms, let me know!

Let me know if you have questions about any of this information…I know I’m throwing a lot at you!  Thanks for taking the time to read.  Have a great day!
