What an amazing group of super seagulls! Our class will be utilizing the Responsive Classroom approach. The approach teaches children to be independent learners and more considerate people. Social skills such as cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control are taught directly and indirectly through morning meetings. Teaching social and emotional skills is JUST as important as teaching academic content. We are focusing on cultivating a community in which students are invested in each other's successes and struggles and not just their own and I am honored to be their guide.
Class Service Project
We appreciate any donations of hats, gloves, and mittens.
Collecting November 5th- November 26th.

What's Going On In C-17?
It is hard to believe it is already November. Time is flying and we are learning so much in cottage 17. Thank you to our magnificent room mother Susan Wilson for organizing our recent October Steam Event. The kids enjoyed each and every station. We appreciate YOU! Also, a huge thank you to our parent volunteers.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Steerman, Mrs. Spencer, and Mrs. Way.
Parents please don't forget about our upcoming field trip scheduled for MOCA on Wednesday, November 13th. Please ensure your child brings a bag lunch on this day. We will be eating at the center.
It was nice meeting with each of you on conference day. Thank you for coming in. I'm lucky to have such an amazing class of kids and parents.
Please continue to encourage your child to do the following each week:
*practice multiplication and division facts-
*practice 2 by 2 multiplication
*review weekly papers/tests
