Weekly Letter for September 24, 2018

Dear Parents,

This Friday, we have a trip planned to a local park designed after ninja warrior courses.  We will be culminating our study of forces and motion in the world around us at this park. We will visit Apex Community Park and need parent drivers.  Please click HERE to learn more and to sign up to drive and come with us! WE NEED PARENT DRIVERS FOR THIS FUN TRIP TO BECOME A REALITY!

The first payment for our spring field experience is due November 1, 2018. Please feel free to send this in at anytime between now and then. The first installment is $50. You may send in cash or a check made out to The Exploris School. Should you have an issue with this payment, please contact us.

We are very excited to have our first 5th grade bake sale in carpool this Friday afternoon!  We need about 10 students who can be in carpool and sell baked goods.  Please know that not all students can participate, but we will rotate student participation each month so all who wish  are able to participate. Please email Leah, lruto@exploris.org, if your child can remain at school until 3:45pm and participate.  They can not be picked up during carpool.  Thank you!

Bake Sale, please sign up here to share with us what you will be able to bake and send in on Friday!  More details in the sign-up. BAKE SALE SIGN-UP

Please make sure all students come to school Tuesday with a healthy breakfast and solid night’s rest.  They will be spending much of the morning taking their Math MAP test.

Finally, Tom and his wife, Sandra, are expecting a baby girl in the next two weeks. Tom will be taking three weeks of paternity leave after the arrival of his daughter. We have shared this information with the class. Cheryl Rodgers will be subbing while Tom is away. While we don’t anticipate this to impact our class, we wanted to share this information with you should your student have questions or concerns about Tom’s absence.

All the best,
Leah and Tom

Weekly Letter for September 10, 2018

Dear Parents,

We hope this message finds everyone well. We plan to visit the Farmer’s Market downtown this week, so please send your student in with $5 if you are okay with him/her having a snack or treat. Many families still need to submit money for either an agenda ($5) or a recorder ($4)  or both. Please send your student with either cash or a check made out to The Exploris School as soon as possible. It is shaping up to be an interesting week, so we will do our best to keep everyone informed about school closures as the week and weather become more clear. We hope everyone stays safe and dry!

All the best,
Leah and Tom

Weekly Letter for September 4, 2018

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a restful, long weekend. The next month or so can be difficult, as students continue to transition from summer to a more regular school environment and schedule.  You can aide in your student’s success by ensuring he/she has plenty of rest and comes to school with a healthy snack and lunch. Also, please make sure your student has a water bottle. As much as we wish for fall weather, it doesn’t appear to be coming this week. Finally, setting aside a quiet space for your student to read or complete any assigned homework will be of benefit.

All the best,
Leah and Tom
