Mr. Cleland’s class took the lead at our last all school meeting.

Hello Conwell Families!
We’re pretty much in full swing now that we’ve arrived in the middle of October.  It’s tough to believe that 30 days of school have already passed.  It’s an exciting time for the first and second graders.  The first graders are really starting to hit their stride and becoming more proficient readers along with learning some difficult math concepts.  The second graders are much like the first graders – they’re just further along at this point! 
We have spent lots of time getting all the children used to the arrangement this year wherein the first grade is split between Ms. Ahrensdorf’s room and my room for the morning.  All the kids have adapted to this really well and it’s been great to see how the different classrooms support and encourage one another when they all come together. 
If you have not already, please contact your child’s classroom teacher to schedule a parent-teacher conference on either November 8th or 9th.
Chris “Mr.” Cleland 

Such a special treat when preschool gets out to the big playground!

Box Tops:  We are still collecting Box Tops for Education.  We even have a bucket at the Corners Grocery Store!  Please continue to send them into the school!  We have a goal to collect 1000 before October 26 and we are up to 150!

SAVINGS MAKES CENTS:  Thank you to Elaine Chase for volunteering for our Savings Makes Cents program.  Sign up sheets went home last Friday and we will start on Thursday, October 25.  Please send your child in with completed forms and money to deposit.  

WIPES AND TISSUES ARE NEEDED.  If you are able to donate any, we would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you!  We are also looking for donations of metal forks for the cafeteria.
