Progress reports for the 1st nine weeks will be issued to students by their homeroom teacher on Thursday, October 2nd.
Donate, Save the Planet, and raise money for NPES PTA at the same time!
For the month of October we are asking every NPES student to donate women’s, men’s, or children’s shoes. We will accept a wide variety of shoes including tennis shoes, casual shoes, and any other type of shoe that is in wearable condition.
All shoes must come in pairs and be tied together by the laces or a rubber band. Please do not use tape.
Our goal: 20,000 pairs of shoes = 37 pairs per student
** Ask your friends, family, neighbors, employers, civic groups, or church to help you collect shoes. We will provide collection boxes if your employer/church/ group is willing to collect shoes on your behalf**
Tie shoes in pairs and drop them off at the collection box in the main hallway.
The PTA will host a school wide celebration if we reach our goal!

I wasn’t able to copy the problems to this post.
Reading: We are reading various books, focusing on short a patterns and sequence for review. There will be comprehension tests on Friday. Our word skills this week are short a families (-at, -ap), beginning and ending sounds, and rhyming words. We are working on capitalization and punctuation in writing, as well as writing complete sentences.
Math: We are learning about patterns. Patterns can repeat (AB AB) or grow (1, 2, 1, 3, 1, 4, etc). Patterns use numbers, colors, shapes, letters, and most anything else. Students have to be able to analyze the pattern part that repeats as well as continue the pattern.
Science: We are finishing seasons. Students need to know that the seasons follow a sequence (order in which things happen), and we can observe different changes to tell us what season it is. We also discuss animal behavior with the change of seasons (hibernation, migration, food-gathering), plants wilt in the heat, and precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, or hail) associated with the seasons.
Social Studies: We are studying holidays and patriotic symbols. We will study George Washington Carver, that he was an African American scientist and teacher, and that he did various experiments with peanuts, soybeans, and sweet potatoes.
Notes: Progress Reports go out Wednesday. Mrs. Markham’s students receive a small incentive for returning the attached sheet on the progress report Thursday.
Picture day is Friday, October 3. Papers went home last week for you to preorder or pay for your individual picture Friday. All students will get their pictures taken that day for the yearbook.
