Tuesday is Family Night
-On Tuesday, 10/13, Noddin is following Union Middle School's lead and implementing Family Night, where students have no homework and are instead encouraged to spend quality time with family. The H&SC has the first Family Dine Out Night at Armadillo Willy's off Camden Avenue the same evening, so this would be a great way to spend family night!
October Challenge Homework
-October Challenge HW can be found under the Homework Tab. Thank you to those students who participated in September's Challenge. We had several students who expressed interest in participating after they saw their friends' work.
-Our field trip to the Tech Museum is taking place this Friday, October 16th. Please have your child wear their Noddin T-Shirt (if they have one) and also pack your child's lunch in a disposable bag. It would also be helpful if you could label your child's lunch. We are departing Noddin some time between 8:30-9:00am and arriving back at Noddin by 2:15pm.
-We are very lucky to have Dana McCormick (Tyler's mom) to help with many photo projects this school year. She has created a Shutterfly Account for our class for parents to upload and share all the wonderful photos they have of various school activities. If you take pictures during a field trip or take pictures during any classroom activities, please upload them on the account for everyone to view and download. Dana will grant you access once you click on the "please grant access" link.
-Class Dojo: As many of you have seen, I have been using a new feature on Class Dojo called Classroom Stories. This allows me to upload any pictures I've taken throughout the day and quickly share them with you all from my ipad and iphone. I've also used their message feature to send out reminders. If you haven't created your account yet and need help, please email me and let me know. The students have really enjoyed seeing all the points they've earned from Class Dojo and it has really fostered a positive learning environment.
