August Newsletter (4 Square News)

We made it through the first week of school and we are off to a great start.   I’m so glad that we are going to be working together this year.  I would like to invite you to join LAPT so you can get the latest news about our LA community and be directly involved in assisting the teachers in our school.

1. Class Website

Parents please take a few minutes to become familiar with the ONeal Online Newsletter (blog)

and the classroom website

We use these websites everyday in class. If you do not have internet no need to worry.   I will send notes home about what we are working on in class and information about all school-wide events in the Communication Binder.  The homework schedule is posted

2. Room Temperature

Yes, I keep my room at 70 – 72 degrees and this may be a bit cool for some students please send a light jacket with them each day.  Also, label all clothing that can be removed to ensure they do not end up in the LOST AND FOUND.

3. Communication Binders

Everyone needs a 3 Ring binder with 8 tab dividers.  Once these binders are ready, they will come home every day.  Please make sure you send them back to school EVERY DAY. Students will keep everything in this binder; homework, lunch money, book fair money, handbook, newsletters, and notes to teacher and note from the teacher.  The homework schedule will be sent home in this binder.  Next, week is a BIG week for us.   If you don’t have a binder please send one to school by Monday.

4. Volunteers

If you signed up to volunteer I will be making phone calls this weekend to finalize the schedule.   If you did not get a chance to sign up for you Volunteer Commitment no need to worry.   I still have a few slots open and you can sign up by returning the attached form.

All jobs need  3 – 4 parents so pick at least 2.

~Don’t Forget to Sign Up to Volunteer~

BIG Thanks to those who have already signed up!!!
