DATES TO KEEP IN MIND –
Friday, Sept. 1 – SPIRIT DAY!  Wear your blue and gold!
Monday, Sept. 4 – LABOR DAY!  No school! Enjoy the day off!

**SCHOOL/HOME WORK – We have been in school a little over two weeks now, and for the most part the students are doing a great job of completing and turning in their work.  However, I have a few missing assignments from a few students.  They usually tell me their parents took it out of their folder and they left it at home :).    If you notice in their Assignment Notebooks that they are missing an assignment, please be sure to ask them about it or check with me for clarification.  I am going to work this week to make sure everyone is caught up on all assignments.

**JUPITER GRADES – I have entered the first few grades in the Jupiter system.  There are not too many, and not all the subjects have grades yet.  Please let me know if you ever see a grade that concerns you or doesn’t seem right.  I am human, and sometimes make a mistake in entering the numbers.  If you send me an email, come and see me, or have your child ask me about it, I will double check my work or let you know what the problem is regarding the grade.  Again, just ask if you have a question!

DISCIPLINE POLICY – I am using a new system this year for behavior and discipline.  I will be explaining more this Thursday at Back to School Night.  But for now…be sure to ask your child about the “Golden Tickets” and how many they can earn each day!  There is a number circled in their assignment notebook starting today!  Be sure to look at that number!  Remember…you want to see a 5!!

**PE NOTE – We will be changing clothes for PE on Thursday and Friday each week.  Please be sure students have shorts and a shirt along with the appropriate shoes for PE.
