No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace As I have seen in one autumnal face. ~John Donne

Thanks to those of you who were able to make it to Open House last night. We had so much fun making the classroom colorful and welcoming for all of you.

Eric Bird from Digital Wish was here today, working with the students on cyber-citizenship. He will conclude this segment on October 13th (we don't have it next week due to NECAPS), then we're jumping right into our lessons. I can't wait! Friendly reminder: there are only a few permission slips still out; if you could sign and return, I'll pass them along to Eric. Thanks.

The DIGITAL WISH INFORMATIONAL MEETING will be held on October 27th so mark your calendars. I'll let you know as soon as the time is determined.

Until mid-February, Thursday afternoon's schedule will change a bit to accommodate Digital Wish. Sixth graders will have math
(and fifth graders will have Language Arts) from 12:30--1:30. Both classes will then gather in the 6th grade classroom from 1:30--2:30 for lessons.


Tonight's work includes completing "Day 4" of DOL, Spelling, and Vocabulary independently since we didn't have time to work on these (short) assignments in class. Spelling and Vocabulary assessments tomorrow.

Thanks, everyone. Have a great (albeit rainy) evening.
