Second Grade Visit to M.D. Williams! Second Grade will be making the first of four trips to M. D. Williams tomorrow morning, October 30, 8:15-9:30. We are following the Transition Program designed to ease their promotion to Third Grade. Purpose of Transition Program: To minimize the transitional concerns of students, adults and teachers. The idea is that second grade students will be more comfortable with third grade expectations once they transition up. At the same time, third grade students will be interacting with familiar individuals from Alma and serving as student leaders for second grade students. Transition Program Outline: The plan is to pair Second Grade classrooms with Third Grade classrooms for the 2018-2019 school year. Regularly scheduled visitations between rooms and teachers will occur throughout the school year in hopes of reducing stress and worry for upcoming students. Goal: To share and display classroom activities, instruction, and expectations between Second Grade Teachers, Third Grade Teachers, Parents and Students.

Thanks to first grade for a great field trip today to Parker Pioneer. I was just informed that some parents only had to pay $5 for admission to the park. This of course would throw up a red flag since we requested $7 per student. I simply want to share with all our parents that we were quoted that cost per child and to our knowledge that is still what we are paying per student. That price was for admission and nothing more. I just don't want anyone to think that we are charging students more than the admission cost. Why parents were charged $5 and students $7, we do not know. Thank you for your time to read this clarification.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! Class placements have changed for some students. First grade has broken the 180 student mark and we are rearranging some placements due to this large number. Thanks to Ms. Sarah Rogers' willingness to address the need, she is moving to First Grade. This means that we will have nine Kindergarten rooms, nine First grade rooms, and seven Second grade rooms. The second grade class she left has been adsorbed by the other second grade teachers. A new first grade class has been formed by absorbing students from other first grade rooms. We are excited about this change and believe that it is the best decision for our growing number of students. Thank you. Shawn Cart

Tuesday night at 5:30 will be our monthly PTO meeting. Jennifer Clay, our President, has organized a fun night of leaning. There will be 5 tables set up as STEM stations: catapult making, 3D structures with toothpicks and marshmallows, chain reactions with cups and popsicle sticks, Volcanoes (smaller,less messy ones), and a butterfly lifecycle craft. We need your support and help with the stations. She said we will need 1-2 people at each station. We would really like to have a great turnout. Please talk with your students about the fun activities. Notes will go home tomorrow. Then I will make reminder bracelets for Tuesday if you will let me know you want them. I am so happy with the crowds that this year's PTO meetings have drawn. Typically January meetings are very low attendance. I am hoping for a good turnout! Thanks!
