Today, we started a new IB unit, How We Organize Ourselves, and the students recognized that not only is order necessary, but that it is found everywhere!  It was a great start!  
P.S. I added several items to “Upcoming Events,” so be sure to check them out!
1) Math (3-9): p. 63 all, p. 64 evens.  Please redo low-scoring quizzes.
2) Read 20 minutes and get it signed–remember that every day read must be signed!! 
3) No spelling this week!

Items of Business:
*Hoppy Taws: a few PE Hoppy Taws are still on sale in the morning before school for $1.50 (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!!
*Automatic Lunch Payment Program:  to pay by credit/debit, go to providencehall.com & select the payment link to make recurring or one-time payments!  e-checks are available for a $0.49 fee, and credit cards have a 3% fee plus $0.50.
*P.E. shoes: Our PE teachers have asked us to remind students that if they are not wearing PE appropriate shoes on their PE days (Mon/Wed for us), they will sit out on some activities!  Please, no sandals or slick-bottomed boots like Uggs!

Upcoming Events:
*Wed., Oct. 17: Scarecrow Scramble 11-11:30 (we will all walk/run a mile!).
