Wow! That was something else, wasn't it? It was a bit cloudy, but there were a few minutes when you could see the red moon in its eclipsed phase. Then, later on, it was just a super bright full moon. All just in time for Mr. Quitt's birthday!
Accelerated Reader Progress
Congratulations to the Cool Kids who have already made their AR goals for the first trimester: Sebastian, Brian, Sidney, Sonia, Benson, Aimee, and Helen!
Remember, each and every student should be able to make their goals, as the point goal and reading level goal is set individually for each student. Each student has THREE goals: a reading level goal (which means that the books that students quiz on and check out from the library should be within that range), an accuracy goal (which is the same for every student: students must average 85% correct on the quizzes), and a point goal (which is based on the student's reading level as determined by the STAR Reading test).
Once a Cool Kid has made their goal for the trimester, they may choose to continue taking quizzes on their books or not. Some students enjoy the challenge of collecting points. They may read books at ANY LEVEL (except black and white levels), on ANY SUBJECT, fiction or non-fiction. The books do NOT have to be AR books. You can check out books above your level, below your level, or even non-AR books! If you read this far, please send in a paper with your child's name and their birthday for a small treat or sticker.
PTA Family Fun Night
Please join the PTA at TuttiFrutti from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Fair Oaks Ranch will receive a portion of the profits from sales. Unfortunately for me, I won't be there this time (Tuesdays and Thursdays are horse riding nights for me). However, if you turn in your receipt that has the correct date and time period, your student will receive a free homework pass from me that is good for any one homework assignment (not counting special projects, of course). Be sure to put the student's name on the receipt!!
