Mrs. King's Class

First of all thanks to all the parents who came in and read to us for Read to Kids Day. We had over 36 people come read to us that day. WOW! That means we will get 36 new books for our classroom. YEA! Thanks again for coming in and reading!

Tomorrow we will have the annual Simonton Character Parade at 1:30 pm. Please feel free to join us to watch the parade you may want to get here a few minutes before then-sign in and then go to the fence between the playground and the big field. That is the area that is being reserved for parents to observe the parade. We will then come back to our classroom to finish our day.

Costumes for tomorrow: Please remember NO MASKS, WEAPONS of ANY KIND, TOY OR ACCESSORIES. They should really only have a costume on nothing carried in their hands. It should be a character from a book or a famous person. Absolutely no BLOOD or SCARY type items or costumes. I would prefer that they come dressed in their costumes unless they can slip the costume over their clothes. We will not have time for 25 children to completely change their clothes in one bathroom. So please either send them in something that they can wear all day or something that can easily be slipped on over clothes.

I have also sent home in folders a new emergency paper. It is white. Please fill out this new form and send it back in your child's folder. I realize you might have just filled one out at the beginning of the year, but they want another one filled out so that we are sure we have current working phone numbers and addresses. Thank you to all who have already sent them back I do have about 10 already returned. Yea!

A big thanks from the PTO to all of those of you who volunteered, helped and attended with your children the Fall Festival. It was a great time and the PTO and school really appreciates all the support!

I will be collecting the October reading charts through Monday-our Bookit Packets and certificates have arrived so every student in the class that returns their October reading chart filled in will receive a coupon for a free personal pizza from Pizza Hut on Monday. I will be send new charts home for November so if you didn't make the goal this month there are still plenty of chances to earn those pizza certificates!

Again thank you so much for all you do at home to support your children's learning and our efforts here at school. You are a great group of parents and have been so great and so supportive and it really makes my job easier! THANK YOU.
