I apologize to you all for not posting our revised time on the blog this week. I'm so sorry it caused an inconvenience to you in picking them up. I totally neglected to post it. We agreed at our conference week meeting to start practicing the extra 30 minutes, I announced it on the morning announcements everyday this week, but I forgot to put it here.
Our next practice is Wednesday, November 5, 2:30-4:00 (90 MINUTES). Practice will be in the Mrs. Fields' classroom. Please read any book and study your question packets. Email them to Mrs. Kelley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Kelley in the media center. Thank you to Mrs. Bradley for sending in the snack last week. Snack parent this week is the Satoskar family. Thanks!
I will be sending home a flier about team t-shirts this week. Please send it back with your child's t-shirt size and if any other family member wants to get one, please note that too. Last year several parents asked to buy shirts to wear to the competitions too. Don't have a firm cost yet, but it's usually around $15 per shirt.

Do you know that our school spends thousands of dollars on high-quality, age-appropriate online resources for your child to use for research?
