Upcoming Room 10 Events!

Sep 3, 2014 by

Dear Parents,

Happy September! Being from Michigan, I always equate this month with apples, Back to School and cooler temps. The draught is giving us an early apple season, but I’m out of luck on the other two. ;)

We have lots of great events coming up in Room 10. Check out the calendar below and please let me know if you have any questions!

Thursday, Sept. 4, 1:05-1:40: Multiplication Boot Camp
Come volunteer to help out with a group during our Boot Camp! You’ll get all the directions and supplies for a game or project to work on with the students. Click here to volunteer!

Thursday, Sept. 4, 6:30-7:30: Family Night
Join us as we play games and do art projects based on topics we’re studying right now in the classroom! Challenge your fellow families in a game of Get To Know You Jenga, find out if you’re Smarter Than a Fifth Grader, create Native American art, dig back into your memory and recall your Multiplication facts-it’s gonna be great! I’ll provide hot dogs; feel free to bring a side or drink to share with the crowd. Click here so I can get a headcount, or comment on the post via Facebook. Siblings are welcome (we even have a baby gate! ;) )

Friday, September 12, 8:45-12:05: KAZU Field Trip
We’re going to be on the radio! Your students will be visiting the KAZU radio station to learn how DJs host radio shows, and then they’ll record their own ‘promo’ to be aired at a later date. We’ll be using these skills in the classroom as we begin to host our own Room 10 radio show! We are looking for parent drivers-please click here to volunteer as a driver!

Friday, September 12: PTA Welcome Back Night
Join the PTA for drinks and appetizers at First Awakenings, and get to know your fellow RHD/Forest Grove parents!

We’ll be walking over to the aquarium, participating in an awesome hands-on lab about animal adaptations and then working on a project as we tour the exhibits. Chaperones get free entry and the ability to touch a starfish! ;)  Click here to volunteer!

Want to help out in the classroom? I’m looking for volunteers to help on Fridays with sorting homework and possibly grading. I’m also looking for volunteers on Mondays to help put graded homework in file folders for the students to take home, as well as other beginning-of-the-week jobs. If you’re interested in a regular volunteering time this month, click here to volunteer! We have Fannie Malone coming in twice a week at the moment, and she has been fantastic! Thanks so much, Fannie!!
