Welcome November!

October was quite a productive month in our classroom, and we have settled into a rhythm for the year. With all of the movement to and from different teachers for English language arts, social studies, and science, we cling to the precious minutes we have each day in morning meeting to help us sustain a sense of community.

There is much excitement about our upcoming trip to Camp Bournedale, Tuesday, November 7-Wednesday, November 8. Students going on this trip will receive last-minute reminders, but essentially, you’ve been provided with all the information you and your child need. Mrs. Lee, Mr. Raymond, and I will all be going to Camp Bournedale. Students participating in the school-based program, Camp Foxy, will hear directly from Mr. Norman about the plans for those same days.

In the weeks ahead, you can expect to hear more about parent-teacher conferences scheduled for Thursday, November 30. As a reminder, those conferences are held with your child’s English language arts teacher. At Back-to-School night, some of you signed up for a conference. Those times will be confirmed, and those who didn’t sign up on that night will be contacted about a meeting time.

Meanwhile, some highlights for the month of October include:

► A fund-raising committee of what will more formally develop into a sub-group of our Student Council has been working SO HARD to count money raised from our recent coin drive. The money is designated for The Red Cross to help those affected by the recent hurricanes. What a great job these kids have done giving up their recess time to count the money.

► Thank you room parents, Mrs. Fine and Mrs. Shah, who put together a couple of wonderful Halloween activities for kids on Monday. Hopefully, their decorated pumpkins and luminarias made it home in one piece!

► Our homeroom earned a class reward! Our compliment chain reached the floor! Each time the class gets a compliment from another teacher, we add a link to the chain that hangs from the ceiling. Since the chain reached the floor, students voted on their reward. We will celebrate on Friday with stuffed animal day, pjs, and a movie!

While I love keeping you informed through this blog, I will always favor a more personal communication style. So, feel free to connect with me by phone (781.238.5684) or via e-mail (jaffe@bpsk12.org). Face-to-face meetings are always appreciated, as well.

Mrs. Jaffe
