Reading Program for December Instead of Regular Log!
We are super excited to be kicking off, for the 2nd time, our “All Aboard With Reading” challenge. This reading challenge will begin on Monday, November 30th, and will end on Friday, December 18th. During this time students are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes a day, 5 or more days a week! If we meet this goal, our students will have read over 200,000 minutes in 3 weeks! Students will be recording the number of minutes that they read along with parent initials on a calendar. At the end of each week, we will announce the school’s total number of minutes read towards our goal.
If the Signal Hill students reach the goal of 200,000 minutes by December 18th, we will celebrate by having a school wide Polar Express and Pajama Day!
Spelling is here :-)
Students have taken a test to determine their spelling level. They have been grouped for spelling and will get new words every 2 weeks (starting today). They will receive and complete a spelling contract in school, but may need to bring it home to finish up (though this shouldn't be necessary if they are using time wisely at school). They will also have a test the day the contract is due. Spelling words will be in your child’s agenda in a baggie, written in their agenda, and on my class web page.
Back to School Night!
Thanks so much to all of the parents who were able to attend Back to School Night last night! I am adding the Power point presentation to this site so you can relive it, or see it for the first time if you were unable to attend :-)
See you in November for Conferences! Please email me if you need a conference time.
Fantastic First Week!
We had a fantastic first week and I am certain your children and I will have a wonderful year together. Have a great weekend! I will see your children's bright and sunny faces on Tuesday morning!
Remember to check the SHES webpage for more information about the school. I will be updating our class webpage weekly as well.
Encore Schedule added to files!

Thank you for attending Open House!
Thanks so much for coming to our Open House on Friday. We have many new students at SHES and I am excited about a great year ahead!
I will post some information on this site next week (it's Saturday so I don't have the files handy), such as our daily schedule, Encore schedule, etc.
Thanks again for those who were able to attend Open House. For thos who were unable, I am looking forward to meeting your child Monday morning!
