    We are starting to share information about our field trip, Winter Survival, on February 19th.  We will start planning soon.  This field trip requires a lot of planning and coordinating between students.  If you know that your child will not be at school on February 19th, please let me know ASAP so that groups can plan accordingly!!!

    I will be out all of next week.  My husband has a business trip to Hawaii, and spouses are invited, all expenses paid, so I could not pass up on the opportunity.  I will miss your children tremendously, but I am leaving them in good hands with Alice King.  Ms. King is a retired AAPS 5th grade teacher who has already spent much time in our classroom getting to know your children this year.  She is excited to work with such a great group of students!!!  Because I am not here, students (other than A2Virtual students who have a different teacher) will not have access to technology.  If they have time at home, it would be great if they could do Lexia and Dreambox next week.  My email response will be spotty, so if you have any important messages, it would be best to call or email the office.

    Please help me welcome Molly Douglass to our class!  Molly is a student intern from the University of Michigan.  She has been working in Mrs. Hagan's class 2 days a week this school year.  With Mrs. Hagan on leave, Ms. Douglass needed a new classroom placement, and myself and my students were happy to welcome her!  Ms. Douglass will be with us 2 days per week until February when she will be with us full time through the end of April.  She will share an informational letter about herself with your children on Tuesday.  We are very excited that she is here!!!

    We will be heading to Clague for a concert on Friday (12-13) from 9:30-11:00!

    We will be heading to the DIA next Thursday (12-19) from 9:30-2:00.  Because the trip is outside of Washtenaw County, we need a signed permission slip in order to take your child.  I have sent one home with your child today, so please be sure to fill it out completely and return it ASAP.  We will not be at King for lunch, so your child will need to bring a sack lunch that day.   We are looking for parents that would like to chaperone.  Please let me know if you are interested!

    Next Friday (12-20) is a King School spirit day.  Students are encouraged to wear their pajamas to school.  We will also have a special reading time, so they may also bring a pillow, blanket, stuffed animal, etc. to school that day!

    Book Order forms came home with your child last Friday (11-15) and are due on Monday (11-25).  If you would like to do some holiday ordering, send me an email and I will set your child's books aside for you to pick up!  See the Book Order page for ordering information.

    Report Cards come home on Tuesday (11-26).  Please take time over the Thanksgiving break to review them with your child.  You can use their binder as a resource to answer questions you may have (especially the backs of their Goal Sheets with my feedback and their assessments).  If you have further questions, please email me.  I have a lot planned over the Thanksgiving break, so I may not answer until we return on Monday.  If your child is absent on Tuesday (11-26), I will send their Report Card home with them when they return to school.

    There is no school Wednesday (11-27) through Friday (11-29).

    The Book Fair will be the week of December 2nd.  We will preview the Book Fair on Wednesday (12-4) and purchase books on Thursday (12-5).
