The Oregon Battle of the Books is coming to Redland Elementary in 2016! Interested students in grades 3-5 should begin reading books from the Battle list now; Mr. Ampersand will begin practice sessions with potential team members in December. The more books you read, the stronger the Wildcat team will be! For more information, see this flyer or contact Mr. Ampersand.
Looking for a new book to read over Winter Break? To support our school expectation of nightly reading for every student, we are having a Book Swap on Dec. 17th & 18th. Students are more willing to read when they chose their own books and magazines! All students will get to take home at least one (maybe more!) new book to read over the break. If your family has gently used books to share, please leave them in the bin outside rm. 13. Happy Reading!
Parents often ask how to support their child’s learning at home. One great option is Moby Max. Every Redland student has a log-in to this website, paid for by the PTA. Moby Max allows students to practice skills in reading, math, writing, and vocabulary. Teachers can assign students specific practice activities and give them feedback on their work. Some teachers have even had their students set goals for the number of minutes students work in Moby Max. Here are some tips for using Moby Max with your child at home:
The Yearbook Committee is always seeking pictures of special events to include in our annual yearbook. Please submit photos you have taken to: firstname.lastname@example.org We need photos from: Field Trips Fall Carnival Sport Teams Music Programs Enrichment Clubs Spirit Days If for some reason you prefer that your child not appear in the Redland yearbook, please submit your request to the office in writing.
Parent-teacher conferences are an important opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and set goals for the coming term. Teachers are looking forward to sharing evidence of your child’s learning and discuss parent questions and ideas for supporting your child’s learning at home. Please return the purple conference sign-up form no later than Nov 3rd. You’ll receive a confirmation form the week of Nov 16th confirming the date and time of your conference.
Have you noticed the swings on the playground? Calvin Van Dorn refurbished them for his Eagle Scout Project. His team replaced the chains and seats and gave the swing set a new coat of bright yellow paint. Our students love it! Check it out the next time you visit our playground.
It's Fall Carnival time! We look forward to this fun community event every year. Please join us by volunteering your time at this annual event. The attached link will allow you to easily find the perfect fit for you and your family. Middle School students are welcome and encouraged to run a carnival game.
