What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update, 10-18-12

on October 18, 2012

This week, we focused on the Edison CARRES trait of being “community-minded”. We helped rake leaves in front of the school and got ready for the Penny Harvest (see below). Friday we will be getting ready for Fall Festival for our classroom community.  We’ve been practicing recognizing our friends’ good work with thumbs ups and “good job”s. Please see the following information about upcoming events and let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you to those of you who have signed up for conferences! I am looking forward to chatting with you about your child!  We will celebrate successes, talk about things we’re working on, share notes from inclusion teachers, and review IEP progress reports.  Conferences will last 30 minutes. Please let me know if you have any questions about when your conference is or what we will be doing. If you haven’t signed up yet, make sure you do so ASAP!  There is still a slot open on Tuesday.

Fall Festival

Fall Festival is tomorrow after school behind Edison!  Remember, this is our biggest classroom fundraiser with the school. It is also a fun way to get to know other students, teachers, and families in the school community, not to mention a chance to celebrate Fall/Halloween with costumes, candy, and games!  Hope to see you there for popcorn (our classroom booth) and fun!

Penny Harvest

As mentioned last week in Thursday folders, the Penny Harvest is coming to Edison! This is sponsored by Edison’s Good Citizens club (run by our very own Ms. Kalisha and Ms. Freeh) and is a great opportunity for us to show our community mindedness. We are asking students and parents to collect any spare change and bring it into our class jar. Th emoney reaised will go to support a cause (picked by Edison students) or towards a community service project!  Room 125 voted to support kids, animals, or the earth (3 way tie!).  We worked together to decorate our jar and are excited to add change for our cause. Any change will help us in our mission to be community-minded.

Fall Break

…is next week! We will not have school next Thursday or Friday. Enjoy the long weekend!

Make Sure You Know School Info

Just as a reminder, school and classroom updates are available in a variety of ways.  Make sure to stay up to date on class and school happenings. In addition to these weekly updates (posted on Thursdays) important events are also listed on the calendar tab of this site. Make sure to check Thursday folders for important school info. You will also find updates about school events (such as Fall Festival, Penny Harvest, Picture Day, etc) here. Finally, the Edison website (http://edison.dpsk12.org/) has a detailed calendar as well as lots of other school info. If you ever have questions about info and events, just ask me!  The things that come home in Thursday folders or that is on the Edison site is important to our room too, and I would be happy to share more details if need be!

Absences and Tardies

As we are getting into cold weather and illness season, your child me be late or absent from school. Please make sure to call the office (720-424-7784) to let them know why your child is missing school so that it will count as an excused absence. If you do not call the office their absence will be marked as unexcused. Also, remember attendance is taken at 8:45 each morning, and pick up is at 3:30 in the afternoon. If you arrive to school after 8:45, make sure to sign your child in before dropping him off at class. Likewise if you need to pick up before 3:30, you must first sign him out at the office.

Let me know if you have any questions! See you soon!
