Weekly Newsletter (September 11-14)


Posted by MrLynch | Posted in Weekly Newsletter | Posted on September 9, 2018

I hope that everyone enjoyed the weekend – an extra long one for the kiddos. We have another four-dayer this week.

Open House is on Wednesday at 7 PM. Appetizers and dessert, including tiramisu flown in from the Veneto region of Italy, will be served. Ok, that’s a lie, but we will have chocolate. Ok, that’s a lie, too. You get nothing, but you should still come. All the cool parents will be there. I hope to see many of you there, where my goal every year is to not mention anything about academic subjects whatsoever. So… what will you talk about? (you might be thinking?) I guess you’ll have to come to find out!

Friday is the Egg Drop. Parents are invited to come watch as I plunge eggs to their demise from the rooftop. It will start around 8:35 AM outside the school near the south entrance.

Very little homework trickled home the first week, but students started to receive math homework last week. As I explained to the class, I give very little homework but I do expect the homework that does come home to be completed, with their name on it, and turned in on time. If any of those things are not done, a homework slip would go home with the student that day. It is expected that both the homework slip and the completed homework is returned the following day. I haven’t started homework slips yet (although I check the homework and remind students each day if they didn’t do something), but these will begin in about a week.
