Thank you to those who came to our Back to School Night. If you could not make it, but have questions for me, you can email me at tbumgarner@amherst.k12.va.us.

Some of the things we discussed:

  • Birthday treats - just let me know in advance. I can pass them out at snack time or at the end of the day. Cupcakes must be store bought. (This is a change from NO cupcakes! :)

  • Agenda - signing your child’s behavior chart is all that I require.  Please do not have your child write their spelling words in their agenda. We will write their words on Tuesdays. Also, any books read over and above homework should be written on that date on the right page of agenda.

  • Homework - so far, so good. Please be sure to return every day.

  • T-shirt orders due Friday, 9/7.

  • Fundraisers due Monday,  9/10.

Please sign the yellow Highlights form even if you are not ordering. This will allow us to get free gifts for the classroom.

Enclosed, you will find some Scholastic book order forms - due by Sept. 10th.  If you are ordering from multiple booklets, you can just write one check to Scholastic. When you order books we receive free books for the classroom.

I will be starting PALs testing this week. I will have results at our first parent/teacher conference.

In social studies, we have continued to look at what makes someone a good citizen. We will begin our study of American symbols this week. This includes our flag and understanding the Pledge of Allegiance.
