Please look for spelling contracts coming home tonight. The students will have individualized lists this year. Everyone will have the same 5 base words that are on the fifth grade level, and 5 additional words taken directly from his/her work that were misspelled. In Friday Folders, students will have an Independent Spelling Contract to complete at least 10 points worth of activities. Students may choose more if they wish. I have also uploaded this document to the reading/writing assignments tab.
Picture day information will also be coming home today. Please fill those out and return to school if you wish to order pictures.
Fundraising envelopes were distributed on Monday this week. Students are encouraged to sell only with parental supervision. This fundraiser supports Mill Creek. The profits made from the fundraising are spent on technology that directly impacts your student's learning.
Students will not have assigned homework every night, but please help them remember that 20 minutes of reading is required every night. When homework is assigned, it is expected to be turned in the following morning. Thank you for your support with this!
Remember there will be no school this Monday because of Labor Day. I hope you enjoy the three-day weekend!
