Parent/Teacher conferences are next week, September 22 and 23rd. On Tuesday, the hours are from 4:00-8:00 p.m. On Wednesday, teachers are available from 4:00-6:30 p.m. For those of you who don't really enjoy surprises, I would encourage you to check Skyward - you can click on the link on the upper right hand side of this blog - and see what your student is up to.
For those students who are craving a way to do something great as well as to raise their grade, here are three opportunities: If you went to Silverwolf Pride Day, write a one page response to the experience. Be sure to type it, double-spaced, and give it to me by September 24th. I'll give you a pat on the back and 25 points.
For those of you who want to be prize winners, I encourage you to prepare and submit something for the PTA Reflections Contest. This year, the theme is "Beauty is..." Give your completed entry to me, I will submit it for you and give you 25 points. You may win a great prize, too! Check the Library Media Center for more information.
If you have the soul of a poet, seriously consider writing something for Tabula Rasa, our literary magazine. They are going to have a contest again this year, and you can submit your pearls of wisdom as early as November 30. Again, this is worth 25 points, and you may end up being famous!
