Mrs. Burton has a Twitter account for one of her “critters.” You may “follow” Rudy Rabbit at @RudyRabbitRead.
We have a college themed reading incentive program which you may have noticed by the flags, banners, and pennants we have decorated our cafeteria with. Our students can earn Anderson "college degrees" according to the number of AR points they acquire. Our reading teachers have determined how many AR points are required at each level to receive “degrees.” These requirements are listed below:
Our classes will be competing by grade levels to see which class collects the most Box Top. The top class per grade level will win a pizza party! Teachers for the top classes will also earn a little something special!
So start sending those Box Tops to school with your child!
Renaissance Home Connect!
Renaissance Home Connect is a fun way for parents to keep track of their child's progress in Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math.
Students will be bringing home a letter that explains how to access Renaissance Home Connect. The letter will also provide parents with their child's user name and password. So... hang on to that letter! Parents will also be able to receive emails when students take AR tests or have Accelerated Math assignments scored.
Please send a note if your student needs to be excused from any physical activity for less than 2 days. A doctor's note is required for missing 3 or more days of class.
Students MUST wear sneakers/tennis shoes to school every day.
