Dear Families of Cornerstone Students,
We have had a great first couple of days in Cornerstone. It is so nice to see returning students and welcome new students into our family. We have jumped right in and began researching and comparing/contrasting reptiles and mammals. We have used World Book Online, our Kan-Ed desktop, stixy.com, and BrainPop among other sites. We have learned a lot about our laptops, such as which keys to push to do things such as highlight, have the computer read unfamiliar words, and much more.
In the coming days we will be working on getting our portfolios ready and our agendas set. Our specials schedule is set. It is:
PE- Monday-Friday at 9 am with Mr. Fluis
Music, Art, and Library with Mrs. Kay at 1pm
Friday-Library (Send books! :) Students have a two week check out period, so they may want to keep the book longer than one week. Check the stamped date to see when it is due.
Please have students come to school in tennis shoes/sneakers. That really saves time in our busy mornings. If they want to bring flip flops or sandals to change into after PE that is perfectly ok. Socked feet are ok in our classroom as long as it is not a distraction. I want them to be comfortable. Children may bring extra socks in backpacks for days they are wearing sandals. Bare feet are not allowed at school per the health code. Also, hats must come off and shoes go on before we leave our classroom for lunch, specials, etc.
Thanks for all your donations and all you do for your students and our school! Call, email, send a note, or stop by anytime with questions or comments.
