C11 Super Citizen Schedule for 2012-2013
Tuesday, May 31 - Thursday, June 2, 2016
B-6 Parents and Students:
This week be sure to look through your student’s white envelope! Inside you will find several flyers, yearbooks and student work samples.
Also, is a packet of your student’s writing samples (these are originals - most you have seen before - I would copy them, grade, and send home the graded copy earlier in the year).
Your student’s report card and other reports were also sent home today - they are in a small manilla envelope.
Hopefully you will enjoy our “The Future of Mrs. Medlin’s Class” booklet! Each student wrote a fun/predictive essay “My Future Self”. It is terrific reading!
This year went so fast - I am always sad on the last day of school, and today was no exception. I see these amazing kids for 180 days, 6 hours a day. I get to know them and their strengths, quirks, struggles, and happy moments, then .... they are gone! I sincerely hope you have a wonderful summer, and enjoy your student for (almost!) every moment.
This week’s agenda included:
Math: Students worked on a “Pre-fifth” curriculum. Topics included: Estimating Sales Tax/Tip/Final Price
Writing: Students wrote several friendly letters, and completed their final Opinion Essay.
Social Studies: Students completed Chapter 11, Growth of California
Agenda for June 2 - August 16, 2016:
Reading: read daily
Math: keep up with math facts, practice!
Reminders & Looking Ahead
First Day of School: Wednesday, August 17, 2016
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 am in my eleventh year at Graystone in second grade and continue to love every minute of it!
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!
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!

Welcome to third grade in B-8! It is exciting to see new faces after a relaxing summer vacation. This is my second 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 week, students and I will be getting to know each other and establish some classroom rules and routines. Don’t be surprised to see how much learning your child is required to do this year! As the third grade curriculum is filled with so many new concepts to learn, we will jump into studying the units in math and language arts this week. The official spelling test will begin next week.
Homework will be sent home with your child this week to help your child 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 and help from you. Homework is due the next day, and students are required to bring in their homework planner each day. Please review your child’s daily homework written on the homework planner and make sure that you sign the portion that describes about the homework from the planner each day. You may also write comments in the homework planner.
Back to School Night is on Tuesday, August 31st. Please mark your calendar for this important event. More information about Back To School Night will be sent home to you next week.
I believe the importance of teacher and parent communication. Please fill in and return the Parent Contact form to school by the end of this week. I will be e-mailing the monthly newsletter to let you know about current activities, units of study, and other important information that is occurring in class at the beginning of the month. Please let me know if you prefer to receive a hard copy of the class newsletter each month.
The 3rd grade school supplies that you ordered in advance through Graystone has been delivered to class. The class needs hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, red pens, and post-its (3”x3”). These items were not listed in the school supply list and will be used in class through out the year. If you wish to donate any of these items, you may bring it to school. Any donation is greatly appreciated.
I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know your child. There will be tremendous learning happening in class, and I believe it will be a rewarding year for all of us.
