I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Today, we had a blast thinking about all the ways skin coverings act as specialized structures for animals, such as camouflage, mimicry, and warning to predators!  I am really looking forward to our upcoming science experiment that will be made possible by your donations!  If you haven’t already done so, please remember to bring any donations for which you signed by tomorrow!  Thanks!

Homework: 
1) Math (2-3): p. 39 all, p. 40 all.  Redo low-scoring quizzes for full points back. For low-scoring tests, I will give 1/2 points back for all corrected problems.
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 
3) Spelling: due Wednesday!

Items of Business:
*Hoppy Taws: one of our PE teachers sells Hoppy Taws for $1.50 in the morning before school!  (exact change only!)
*Lunch Money: If you bring lunch money and put it in the box at the office, make sure it is labeled with your name, teacher, and grade in an envelope/bag!!

Upcoming Events:
*Sep. 25: Boxtops due

*Sep. 28: Boxtop Dress-down day

*October 1: Due date for the “Make Your Mark Bookmark Contest.”  You can win $1,000 if you enter, so be sure to check it out!  http://www.uesp.org/bookmark
*October 11: (6:00-7:30 pm) 5th Grade Parent Night!  Please mark your calendar, because you will be looking at your own child’s work to learn more about our school and how you can help your child succeed!
