B6 - Weekly Newsletter

Monday, August 22 -  Friday, August 26, 2016

B-6 Parents and Students:
Be sure to look through your student’s white envelope.  This envelope will come home every Friday, and should be returned empty on Monday.  This week times included are: student work samples, informational flyers, and a membership packet for Home and School Club.

Home and School Club is a vital part of Graystone. This organization organizes many events for our school community and raises funds supporting a myriad of programs here at Graystone. Membership is of course optional, but if you can join by donating any amount, this will truly help support our school.

This week we began a math curriculum that is new to many of the students; it is Origo math.  This math curriculum is largely online (which means no text book for students!)—its focus is more on the how to solve, deeper understanding of math, and less on repetitive problem solving.  Also, I will discuss it a bit more during Back to School night.

Please join me for Back to School night, which is this Tuesday September 30, at 6:00 in our classroom. This is a night for parents only - I will go over curriculum, expectations for the year, and give an overview of the 4th grade year. That night goes quickly, and I likely won’t have time for conversations about individual students, but I am happy to meet with you anytime, before or after school, to discuss your student! Following the classroom presentation, be sure to go to the Home and School Club meeting in the Superdome at 6:30.

This week’s agenda included:
Math:  Students continued a study of place value and value of five digit numbers.
Writing: Students developed ideas for narrative writing.
Social Studies: Students created a relief map of California, deepening their understanding of where California is located in the United States, and understanding the regions of California.

Agenda for August 29 - August 26, 2016:
Math: We will continue Origo unit one, which focuses on number sense and place value.
Writing: Students will continue the personal narrative writing; we will select a seed idea, and begin to plan timelines.
Reading: Students will read “Akiak” from our reading anthology and “MUSH!!”; focus is on close reading, explaining text by citing examples and details.
Social Studies: Students will begin Chapter 1, California’s Land and People.


Reminders & Looking Ahead
Back to School Night (parents only): Tuesday, August 30; 6:00pm meet in B-6 for our class presentation; 6:30pm meet in the Superdome for the Home and School Club presentation

No school Monday, September 5 (Labor Day holiday)

Dear Parents,
      Welcome to second grade in G-30! I am so pleased to welcome you and your child to our classroom. I know that this will be a productive and rewarding school year for all of us. I am a firm believer in providing students with a safe, hard-working, loving classroom where they can feel in control of their own learning. I plan a curriculum that meets your child where they are academically and helps them to be self-guided learners. I hope to work together with you to create a successful learning experience for your child. 
    For those of you I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in a little city, nestled in the East Bay hills, named Orinda. I followed both of my parents’ footsteps and attended college at Chico State, where I received my bachelor’s degree in liberal studies as well as my teaching credential. I got hired at Graystone in my first interview out of college and have been teaching second grade ever since! For the last twelve years I have been Miss Chappelle. I got married last September and am beginning my first full year as Mrs. Bernhardt. My husband teaches math at Pioneer High School down the road.
    Part of being at Graystone is keeping in contact with my students’ parents and it is important to me that I do just that. My e-mail is a great way for you to contact me as I check it regularly before and after school. There will also be monthly newsletters coming home with your child that will explain upcoming events and assignments. Second graders will be responsible for nightly homework as well as additional projects that I will explain in the newsletter as they arise.
    I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know your child. I know we will have a great year together!

Warmest Regards,
Kristen Bernhardt

B-5’s Zero Club for Lexia

Our goal is for every fourth-grade student to complete Lexia Level 16 before the end of the school year. B-5 works toward this goal during computer lab, but these students went an extra mile. We are proud of the following student-scholars who worked hard, not only in class, but also at home on their own time to complete this goal. We are grateful for their effort and acknowledge their accomplishment with pride.

Congratulations to the following B-5 Scholars, members of the Zero Club!

Dear Parents,

Welcome to third grade in B-8!  It is exciting to see new faces after a relaxing summer vacation.  This is my eighth year teaching third grade, and I am so excited that I will be working with your child to ensure a fun and successful third grade learning experience. 
This is my thirteenth year at Graystone, and I previously taught first and second grades.  As a third-generation educator in my family, I have been raised with high educational values and standards.  My experience as a second language learner in high school taught me the importance of practice and hard work to accomplish academic success, and I hope to share this belief with my students. 
As students journey into third grade, it is my goal to create an accepting, positive, and encouraging environment that celebrates individuality and fosters children’s critical thinking and learning.  This week students and I will be getting to know each other and will be establishing some classroom rules and routines.  Don’t be surprised to see how much learning your child will cultivate this year.  As the third grade curriculum is filled with various new concepts, we will jump into studying the units in math and language arts. 
Homework will be sent home with your child this week to help them quickly adjust to the new school year.  Successfully completing neat and organized homework on time is expected in third grade, and your child may need additional support from you.  Most of the homework is due the next day, and students need to bring in their homework planner to school each day.  Please review your child’s daily homework written on the homework planner and make sure that you initial the portion that describes the homework.
I believe in the importance of teacher and parent communication.  Please fill in and return the Parent Contact form to school by the end of next week.  Starting in September, a monthly third grade newsletter will be sent home at the beginning of the month to let you know about current activities, units of study, and other important information. 
Information about third grade curriculum and activities will be shared at Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 30th.  Please mark your calendar for this important event.  If you need to contact me for any reason, stop by after school, send a note with your child or e-mail me.
I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you and your child.  There will be tremendous amount of learning happening in class, and I believe it will be a rewarding year for all of us. 

Sincerely,


Sue Cho
