From Mrs. Mungin, our Music Specialist:
This week your child is responsible for practicing all their Recorder Karate songs. Orange logs will be sent home this rotation and should be returned in 6 days with a parent signature for each day your child practice. Students will receive $5 in Mungin bucks for each day they practice and a grade of a 100. Anything less than 6 days will result in a lower grade. Students who do not bring their logs to class will receive a Think Sheet and CAN NOT bring in at a later time for credit. Logs are due on time. Thanks for encouraging your child to practice to increase their knowledge of music.
WINTERFEST, the Teasley Elementary School Christmas Tree Lighting, will be held December 3rd from 4-8. This is a fun filled event for the whole family. There will be food, games, holiday activities, pictures with Santa and performances that will include the Teasley Treble Tones. If you are interested or know someone who would be interested in a vendor space please have them to submit an application for consideration using this link:
Deadline for applications is November 18th. Thanks for supporting the Teasley Treble Tones!
As many of you know, Teasley has added a new bus and many of our bus routes have changed. That means that your child may now be riding a new bus. The new bus routes were effective today and we as a school are taking precautions to ensure that your child makes it onto the right bus at the end of the day. To check and see if your bus route has changed, please go onto the Cobb County website. All addresses have been updated with the new routes (if a change has been made).
Recorder Logs for Music: A Message from Mrs. Mungin
I hope that you are enjoying the recorder playing you are hearing around your house these days. This rotation all students have a YELLOW recorder log to turn in. 6 days is required 15 minutes a day. Students should be practicing 3 songs. When they return to music class they will do group testing on all songs to receive their recorder karate belts. Failure to complete this assignment will result in a non-passing grade. Parents please encourage your child to practice by signing their logs. I appreciate your help.
REMEMBER PRACTICE MAKE A GREAT GRADE!!!
I would like to try an easier way for parents to quickly check their child’s behavior in class. I am going to start marking with a colored marker in the students’ agendas at the end of every day with the color that they end on. For example, a student who ended their day on blue will have a blue mark in their agenda for that day. I hope this will provide you all with a quick and easy way to take a glimpse at your child’s daily behavior.
Of course, I will continue to update Class Dojo as well. Thank you for being flexible with me as I try out different ways to communicate with my parents. I am doing all that I can to keep you informed of your child’s performance in school. 🙂
The student connection team would like to congratulate the following students who have had perfect attendance and NO tardies for the first 9 weeks of school.
These students will be allowed to dress down on Friday, October 14, 2016. Each student will receive a dress down sticker to wear for the day when they arrive in their classroom on Friday morning. Children will be recognized every 9 weeks. We appreciate you, parents, for getting your children to school on time, every day!!
Here are a few updates about things that are going on in our classroom and school the next couple of weeks.
Fire Safety Village
Our first field trip is scheduled for Monday, October 10th. Permission slips went home before break, so please try to return them by Friday. Students who do not turn this slip in will not be able to attend the trip. A medical treatment agreement waiver is also being sent home today. Please have this returned by Friday as well.
Happy Monday! I hope everybody enjoyed their Fall Break. I have a few updates about what is going on in our classroom these next couple of weeks.
Today, we are anticipating a fun visit from some firefighters to go over fire safety rules. This is in preparation for our trip to the Fire Safety Village on October 10th. If you have not done so already, please sign the permission slip sent home with your student and return to school ASAP. This is going to be an exciting field trip!
