Mrs. Niederstadt's Parent Letter

January 25, 2007

Dear Parents,


Tomorrow we will walk to the Onekama Public Library.  We’ll leave at 12:45 and should return by 1:30.  Students need to return their books in their new library bags made on our last library visit.  They will be able to check out three new books. 

Also Ms. Jane will help us make a winter craft.


Spelling will begin next week.  Your child took a spelling assessment.  Your child’s assessment is enclosed.  Please practice these words, because this test will be given again at the end of the school year.  Your child should know these words by the end of the year.  Our class average was 62 words out of 90, or 69%.  Any misspelled words were added to your child’s spelling list.  Words are added to your child’s list from the spelling assessment and his/her daily writing.  Each week I will choose six words for your child. Students will bring home their spelling list on Mondays.  The test will be given on Fridays.  The first list will come home next Monday.
