THANK YOU! 
It was great to see so many of you  at Parent Night!  It was a fun night and I hope you found it informative.   Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.   Thank you to Ms. White and Ms. Scherman for volunteering to be our room parents.   I appreciate your continued support as we learn the routines and get back into school mode.    

BLOG NEWS 
You can now subscribe to this newsletter and get news of updates emailed.  Just put your email in the subscribe block on the right side of my blog.  By subscribing you will automatically be notified of any updates.  A calendar and picture page are on their way!  

We enjoyed several sessions in our new media center last week.  First we learned that a blog comes from weblog, which is a log of ideas and writing that can be shared.  
Students then looked at sample blogs on paper and made comments to practice appropriate netiquette.  

  Students were thrilled to be the first LJA class to get their hands on our new Mac laptops.  We worked hard to get our blogs up and running.  Students named their blog and picked the design for their blog page.  Please click on the Student Blog/Portfolio tab and then look for your child's blog.  Click on their blog name  put in the password and check out their blog design!  Next week we will put in our first blog entry.  

Buddy Bookmarking Fun 
On Friday we met our 5th Grade Buddies and worked on bookmarks.  Next up, we will interview our buddies on the topic of friendship.  Students will come up with their interview questions and then meet again for an interview session.  

Picture Day is  Wednesday.  Enjoy the 3 day weekend!
