Newsletter: Week 35 of 37

A new classroom addition!
May 30 - June 2, 2017

   Thank you to all of the parents who contributed to the class party last week! It was a great way to send off the kids into the 4-day weekend, which I hope you enjoyed. The class also earned a Pez Party last week, which will be scheduled for this upcoming Friday. Just like last time they earned a Pez Party, we will be dressing in pajamas (optional) and watching a movie! I'll send out details about the movie in the next day or two, once I decide on one. The students are welcome to bring treats to share, but just so you know, we already have a lot of Capri Suns and popcorn, so don't bring any more of that. Make it a great week, everyone!

Person of the Week

Caylie Poindexter!

Topics to Talk About at Home

The students should be starting their visual for their Middle Ages Presentation soon, if they haven't already. Their final draft of their research paper is due on Google Classroom on Friday, and many of them have already finished typing.

Annual End-of-the-Year Survey to Help Mr. Riedl Improve

I am continually learning and growing as a teacher, and I appreciate any specific feedback you can give me at the end of the year. I feel like I have learned more this year than any other year so far in my teaching career. Over the summer, I have several things in mind that I'm planning to work on to be better next year, and I would any other suggestions that you think might be helpful. Please CLICK HERE to give me feedback by taking a quick survey. Thank you so much for helping me be a better teacher in the years to come!
