Dear Green Acres Families,
Winter is here, with colorful trees, crisp leaves, and cooler temperatures. A perfect time for reading! We just had our first Reading Rocks Assembly of the year. This includes students grade 2-5. and 12 students who met their personal reading goals won prizes- a free book pick, a stuffed animal. Arden Ferrowitz was the first student to hit ONE MILLION WORDS! We know there will be more. Keep on reading!
Our new Unit 5 classrooms, waiting for fifth graders to move in, will be open by January 6, barring any issues. (We are keeping our fingers crossed!) The rooms are beautiful and the fifth graders will enjoy how bright and spacious they are. The amphitheater is waiting for final state approval and will be complete about a month later. Green Acres is looking good!
Did you know that teachers do not like to do parking lot duty after school because they get yelled at by parents? Some drivers even back up and make rude, insulting, or angry comments. We have had to call District security and Highway Patrol several times. WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP DISMISSAL SAFE FOR YOUR CHIDREN. Please, please, please…I know it’s challenging but let’s take a deep breath and remain kind and polite.
Have a wonderful holiday break and we look forward to new classrooms, calmer parking lots, and lots of reading fun in 2014!
5th Grade Outdoor School Payments: Keep sending in your monthly payments toward your child’s Outdoor School tuition. Outdoor School is March 25 - 28, 2014.

A big Thank You for all the volunteers who helped with the Book Fair. We could not have done it with out you. The Book Fair is a big job and with all the help from parents makes a wonderful experience for the students. This Fall Book Fair was great with Clifford's Birthday Party for opening night. We received over 1000 free books for the library and classrooms. Thank you for supporting the Library and the love of reading.
