Hello everyone. I know what you are thinking. “What happened to Week 10?” Well as it turns out, I was away at the CIMI 5th Grade field trip all weekend and I was unable to get the site updated.
Our Fall Festival will be this Wednesday the 23rd of October from 4 to 7 pm. Make sure to join the fun!! There will be food trucks and raffles and lots of great games and prizes. Please remember that our class will be raffling off a Golden Knights basket. Our basket has over $300 worth of collectibles by my account (Including all 4 preseason Bobble Heads!) Tell your friends!!! We also are collecting candy to hand out for Trunk-or-Treat that night. The class in each grade level that brings the most wins a prize! At the last weigh in, we were in 2nd place for 4th grade. Please make sure to thank the GPATT and other volunteers for working so hard to put on such a great festival!
Parents, I will be sending out an email later this week to have parents sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences. The scheduling will be online and will be first come, first served. Make sure you try to schedule your time close to any other child you might have at Goynes so that you only have to make one trip! Thursday, November 14th will be our evening conferences and Friday the 15th will be our no-school day set aside for conferences.
Parents, we are using our planners daily. If you have not purchased one in the office yet, please do so as soon as possible. Several students are not completing their homework and most of them are the same ones who do not have a planner. They are $6.00 and available anytime.
Speaking of homework, please make sure you are checking student work for neatness and that it is indeed completed. This week, we continue our Reading, Spelling, and Math homework. If your child has a free minute, have them practice their multiplication and division facts.
We will have our music field trip to the Smith Center coming up on October 30. It should be a great time and please remember that a field trip to the Smith Center is a privilege that is granted to us because of how well behaved our students are. Let’s keep getting invited back by maintaining those high standards!
Here is a digital copy of the back to school brochure handed out during our Open House and Teacher Meet and Greet. Thank you all that came out and visited. I enjoyed meeting you all!
