    Another happy Monday to you all! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and was able to get outside to enjoy the beginning of the gorgeous fall weather! If you'd like to know more about what we are learning this week, CLICK HERE! Spelling We started spelling full force this past week and I cannot wait to see how our magnificent students grow throughout this school year in reading and writing! Take note of the spelling list found in your students agenda. These are their words for the week. They will be completing activities in class with these words, however, you can always incorporate them into your daily reading/writing routines after school. It is important that students can spell, read, and understand the meaning of each word. They rocked the first week of the program and I know they are going to continue to be AMAZING!  Field Trip Field trip forms were sent out last week. Please be sure to sign BOTH sides of the paper before you send it in. :) I will be picking chaperones on Wednesday, so please return the paperwork ASAP if you are interested in chaperoning our trip.  Conferences It's that time of year again! We are getting ready for conferences! Please sign up through this SIGN-UP genius! If none of these times work for you, please e-mail me a better date and time and I will accommodate as needed.  Career Day Multicultural Night Information Operation Turkey Parent Vue Glow Dance Yankee Candle Sale Have a wonderful week!

    Happy Monday Porter Parents! I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing weekend and are refreshed and ready for a new and wonderful week!  To find out what we are learning this week check THIS out!  Remediation information: Remember that remediation is reteaching and practicing missed objectives from the assessment. Depending on the level, some students may take longer than others to remediate from the tests. I pull small groups to work on concepts and I send home review work and reading to help students who are struggling. Some retakes could be within the week and others may not be given for two weeks. Remember that all students are different and require different amounts of time to master a concept. If your child receives packets of information to work on, please review that information at home. :)  Parent Portal: Parent portal can sometimes act up... which means some grades may not show correctly. Again, this is new for the county so please be patient with it. :) We are all working on learning this new system and they are still working all the kinks out.  Communication: I love hearing from you on Class Dojo, Remind, e-mail, or even notes! However, please allow me at least 24 hours to respond to questions. I am available from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. daily to answer your questions. Any messages after that time will be answered the next day. For absences etc, I will forward messages to the office immediately. :)  I hope everyone is finding it much easier to get to Office and Clever for Moby Max and IXL. Again, if you have any questions on how to get to Clever, watch the video on last weeks blog. :)  Field trip information is coming soon!  ****The makerspace needs your help!**** We are in need of wire hangers! If you have any wire hangers that you could donate to the makerspace it would be greatly appreciated! Have a wonderful week!!!
