Hey Parents & Guardians! 
I have a few things that need to be covered for this week!
Please ensure that your child's homework folder and any information forms are completed and returned as soon as possible, preferably the next day. 

There have been two forms that have been sent home: Student Information form and NB Public Library Permission Forms for a Library Card. Please be sure these are completed and returned. 
Please provide updated contact information on the Student Information form! 
Lunch AND goody cart money: If you do not wish to send goody cart money, please provide a healthy snack for recess. If your child does not choose from the lunch menu, please send a bagged lunch with your child in the morning for their daily lunch. Dropping off lunches throughout the day is no longer an option due to the Covid-19 Safety Protocol at every school.
Lunches cannot be reheated and there is no microwave service.
Lunch is $2.00 a day and Goody Cart snack is $0.50 per day, of which I am keeping track of on a daily basis. I will send a note home, prior to your child's money running out to send a reminder for you! 
Masks: I am also asking parents and guardians to please ensure that your child has a mask daily, preferably one that can be brought home at the end of the day and washed immediately. If you cannot provide a reusable mask, please ensure they have a disposable mask. These are to be worn on the bus, am and pm and in the hallways at school. It is not required outside, but it is definitely your child's choice. 
Indoor AND Outdoor Footwear: Please ensure that your child has two pairs of footwear, one for inside the building and gym class and one for outside and home. The Indoor sneakers will be kept at school in your child's class.
Appropriate dress for outdoors: Please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, outdoor sneakers or shoes, sweaters or hoodies, coats, rainboots for rainy days! 
Book Orders: I will be attaching a digital copy of this month's Scholastic Book Order to this note. If you wish to order for your child, please have the item numbers, price for each item, quantity and total of your book order, with your child's name on it, and send it to me, also, I will be sending home a paper copy this weekend, to be returned by September 25, 2020.
I will be contacting parents with some information to help you get acquainted to me and our classroom EA, Robert Joe! I will provide you with means to contact me, as well as any other information I can provide for your questions! 
DO NOT HESISTATE to contact me at any time for concerns or questions you may have!
Thank you and have an awesome weekend, my Busy Bees and Families!
Ms. Ellison & Robert!

Hey Students and Families!
I'm just hoping that everyone has a chance to keep up with your teachers' pages and are having fun while doing activities off their lesson plans! I also hope that everyone is taking at least a minimum of 30 minutes a day to keep up with your reading! Reading is not only directly from a book, or an e-book! You can also read recipes while helping a parent cook, ingredients on your cereal boxes and other food items, instruction manuals for games, ect. There are all kinds of types of reading! Try to get in at least 30 minutes a day to keep up your reading stamina! 
Have a great day and a great weekend!
Ms. Ellison

Today is Thursday, April 9, 2020: Nature Studies! Plant a plant cutting or a seed! Keep a journal with pictures (if possible) or simply have a great discussion with your family about the changes you see taking place! **If you have no plant cuttings or seeds, adopt a little wild plant outside and continue to observe the changes in the growth**

This is just an idea for your little ones at home. With my students, my plan was to plant a cutting of a Spider Plant, but we haven't been able to do that with closure of schools. I have an idea for my students and anyone's children! 
Assignment A:
1: Take a cutting of a plant you may have at home, put it in a bit of water, fresh water daily in the bowl or glass. 
2. If your children have a notebook or can journal on a tablet or something, keep a daily journal of the changes your plant goes through, from the day you have placed it in the water, and then, when the roots start showing. They can even keep an illustrated journal of their plant's progress. 
3. Once the plant starts to root, place it in a pot of soil and keep track of that progress!
4. Good luck growing and enjoy your new plant!
Assignment B:
1. Take a seed, whether it is a vegetable seed or flower seed.
2. Give it a little soak, depending on what the instructions state on the seed packet, or give it a few hours soak if it's fresh from a food. 
3. If you have a little soil, a flower pot, plant this seed.
4. Give it good light.
5. Water the soil lightly when the soil looks dry. 
6. Check it daily. 
7. Keep a journal either every day or every so many days when you've noticed a change or draw pictures of it, OR simply discuss with your parents or guardians, the changes that are taking place with your seed!
8. When you see the seed beginning to sprout, keep sprinkling it with water, love and sunshine!
Enjoy the process! 

Read between 15 and 30 minutes if you have a chance today or over the weekend!! Reading daily builds stamina, teaches you new words and takes you into a whole new world!!
