Mrs. Niederstadt's Parent Letter

March 15, 2007

Dear Parents,


As you may or may not know, I was out of the classroom last Tuesday and Wednesday.  My daughters have been sick.  The classroom/homework has been a little “off” this week.  I’m sorry for any inconvenience.


Tomorrow will be a busy day.  The store will open for business again.  We will have our spelling tests after gym class and a presentation by Romana DeGeorgio-Venegas titled “Fun in the Woods” at 10:25 in the Media Center.  This is all before lunch.  After lunch we will have Camp Read-a-Lot in our classroom.  Students can bring pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, stuffed animals, snacks, and some favorite books.  Also comfortable clothing will be appropriate such as pajamas, sweatpants, jogging outfits, and slippers.  Your child can wear these items to school for Camp Read-A-Lot, but please be sure it is weather appropriate.  Also extra camping snacks would be appreciated such as popcorn, trail mix, chex mix, marshmallows, pretzels, etc. 


On Monday Buck Wilder’s presentation is at 10:00 – 10:45 in the Media Center.  If you would like to purchase one of his books, then another order form is enclosed.


Next Thursday we will walk to the Onekama Public Library to return our books from the Manistee Public Library and check out three more books.  Ms. Schultz’s class will walk with us.  Carol Shiverly from the Manistee Public Library will read some stories to us during our visit. 

Young Author’s Night is Thursday at 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Media Center.  Your child will have the opportunity to share his/her story.  Students have worked very hard creating their hard-covered books.  Students will be able to take their books home on Friday, March 23rd.  They need their books for buddy reading.

     Green Day – March 16
