Boys and Girls, Children of all ages, Parents and Grandparents, Guardians and Families! NORAD has officially activated the NORAD Santa Tracker and is ready to track Santa's journey around the world on the evening of December 24th!
The link that I have provided is safe and all the boys and girls, of all ages, can play the games and interact with the website. Be sure to stay tuned on Christmas Eve as Santa begins his journey around the world to deliver all his presents to the children of Earth! |
Stay tuned to the bottom of the screen where it shows the official daily, hourly and minute countdown! There is also a menu at the bottom where you can click play and listen to Christmas music! 
**Be sure to click ALLOW at the top of your screen for specific location to show the correct time and date of the Tracker for your location! 
Have fun and enjoy the website!! 
Santa Claus will be coming to town soon!! Be super listeners and good boys and girls!!

Book Orders for Middle School: Grade 6 to 8 for December 2017!
Hey Everyone in Middle School, 
I've got a few book orders in print for December. If you wish to order, I'll be collecting the orders with money until Friday, December 8, 2017 at the end of the day (2:45 p.m.)  If you wish to place an order with me, please bring your order and money to my class anytime throughout the day before Friday. I will bring your orders to your class upon arrival. Also! For any parents or students with very young siblings, I have also a few Pre-K and K-2 book orders if you'd like to bring them home! Same date and time apply for these as well! Also, if I do not have enough book orders to go around this time, you can simply look through the book order, write the item number down and pass it to me!
I have to order early to ensure that the orders will be in before the holidays! 
Thank you!
Ms. Ellison

Dear Parents:
My name is Ms. Ellison and I am your child's Literacy Support Teacher. I may have sent a book home with your child starting yesterday, Monday, September 11, 2017. I request of the parents and guardians each night for the younger students especially, that you please sit with your child and listen to them read. This should be the full book for Grade 2's.
If your child is in Grade 4/5, my requested reading time is: 20 minutes MINIMUM per night from their books. It is my hope that again, a parent or guardian will be sitting with your child and listening to their reading practice each night. I will be assigning some other homework in the days to come but for this week, reading practice is what will be sent home.
If your child is in Middle school and I have sent a book home with them, their reading time is a MINIMUM of 20 minutes per night, preferably a minimum of 30 minutes though. However, if they are interested in reading longer, they may do so! 
PLEASE FOR ALL GRADES, HAVE YOUR CHILDREN RETURN THEIR ASSIGNED BOOKS DAILY! This is very important so they will have their book to read during the time I take them, or during quiet reading times. 
I will be sending a Reading log home with them this week as well. 
Thank you and sincerely, 
Ms. Ellison
Literacy Support-Esgenoopetitj School.

Hello and welcome back to all the students and parents! I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer break and that the new school year is full of excitement and anticipation of many new experiences! As you know, I am your Literacy Support teacher. Within the next few weeks, I will begin working with new students. I welcome any questions and your appreciated support from home to help guide your children through their Literacy learning path! I will continue to update my Teacher page as the time goes. I will be posting homework and other important notices. Please be reminded that when I send homework home, I require a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes of reading per night. I am always so excited to begin working with your children because it is amazing to see them grasp reading concepts and build confidence in reading and writing!
Thank you! 
Ms. Ellison

If your child has received a note in their homework from me, in regards to any missing classroom books, I would appreciate if you would take the time to look around your home and please send the books from my classroom back as soon as possible. 
Thank you!

Parents of Ms. Ellison's Students:
Please have a look around your homes for any books that may belong to my class. Your child will know which ones need to be returned. I would appreciate if they can be returned by tomorrow: Friday, March 4, 2016 OR at the latest by the first week after the March Break: March 14 to 18. These books are part of my classroom library and they also may be books that the students have not had a chance to finish reading. I appreciate your help in finding and returning any misplaced books!
Thank you!

Hey Students and Parents! The book orders that my students are bringing home today, are due back with both the book order and money, by Friday, January 22, 2016! Thank you!! Ms. Ellison 
Parents, Guardians and Students in Literacy Support, The contents of my homework bags usually consist daily of a book to read, a vocabulary list (every so many days with a specific testing date marked on it), a homework sheet for parents to sign (lower elementary) and a reading log for upper grades to complete AFTER you have finished reading.My homework requirements daily for all students is to read for a minimum of 20 minutes (or more),, in the book I send home, have homework sheet or reading logs signed and updated AFTER you have completed homework. Students are to take care of the materials that are sent home every evening, including the plastic bag (provided to prevent rain or snow from damaging homework materials). Homework is to be completed every evening and parents' attention to the materials that your child brings home is required. I request from all parents/guardians that your child has an adult to sit and read to or with, depending on the difficulty of the book or as well, for the pure enjoyment purposes of reading together. A child that has someone to listen to while they are reading out loud, is a child that is strengthening their reading skills. I appreciate your attention to your child's homework. Thank you! Ms. Ellison Literacy Support
Hey Students, Parents & Guardians! I have sent a small package of Scholastic book orders home for September. I am requesting that you return them by Thursday, September 24, 2015 in the afternoon at the latest. If you cannot return them by this date, but would still like to order, please send me a note from you, the parent/guardian and let me know when you wish to order. I will be sending out book orders for every month after this and I will usually be requesting them within a few days after the 20th of each month! Your purchase from Scholastic helps to build a classroom library at school! I appreciate and thank you for your support for your child's reading journey!  Ms. Ellison "The more that you read, the more things you will know.
