Sun, Oct 15, 2017

Here are some things to keep in mind for the week:

Our spelling skill focuses on two ways to spell the /ou/ sound. It can be spelled with the vowels -ou, as in round, ouch, and cloud. It can also be spelled with -ow, as in downtown, howl, and clown. Red words: girl, give, April. Since our zoo field trip is Friday, our test will be Thursday.

Don't forget that PDS FAMJAM is Tuesday night at Railgarden, 2166 Central, from 4-7 p.m. I hope to see you there!

Wednesday is Library day, so please remember your Library books.

Our field trip to the Memphis Zoo is Friday, October 20! We'll plan on leaving here a few minutes after 9:00. Please have your son wear a red collared shirt and regular school shorts/pants. He is welcome to bring a light jacket in case it's cool. Each boy needs to bring a lunch and drink IN A PAPER SACK. No lunch boxes, please! Also, please remember to drop off your son's booster seat when he comes to school. We will return to PDS between 1:30 and 1:45. Boys can be dismissed with their parents or stay at school for Music. 

Grandparents' Day is next Friday, October 27. They boys are practicing a lot and sounding great!

Have a wonderful week!
