I've Been Making $$$ on the Railroad: Now that the railroad is complete, with this new means of transport, Truckee was born. In Case Study #2, students are learning about the economic influence of the railroad through the Sierra Nevada.
Questions of the Week:
Rotary Dictionaries: Each year, Truckee Rotary donates student dictionaries to all 3rd grade students in TTUSD. This is a nationwide program supported by Rotary in an effort to make sure all 3rd graders have a dictionary of their own. Students at SELS are asked to write an essay on "How I Use My Dictionary" to be submitted in a district wide essay contest. Last year, the winning essay came from our school. The winning school receives a pizza party. Students must submit their essays to their crew leader by December 20 to be eligible.
Holiday Book Order: Our Scholastic Book Order will be submitted on Monday, December 9th. I attached a FREE Book coupon to each order. With a $10.00 purchase, you will receive a FREE book valued up to $5.00. Please let me know if this is a gift order and I will hold the books aside. This order should arrive by Celebration of Learning. This is a great gift for students and a sure way to keep them reading during the winter break.
Nevada County Library: Welch crew will walk to Nevada County Library on Thursday, December 19th. Students will be able to check out books to read over break to keep their reading skills sharp. We will be completing our mid-year reading assessments in January, so reading over winter break is essential for their succes.
Gratitude Dinner: Thanks to everyone that made our 4th Annual Gratitude dinner a huge SUCCESS. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to all the parents within the SELS community that makes working with your children everyday a real pleasure. Thank you for sharing your amazing children with me.
Celebration of Learning: Mark your calendar for our Celebration of Learning on December 19 from 6:00 - 7:30. This event is open to the public and we would love to share our learning with family members, friends, and neighbors. Come see what all the crews have been learning all fall and celebrate with us.
PTC meeting: All parents are invited to attend our monthly PTC meetings. The Parent Teacher Crew is responsible for organizing and supporting school-wide events (Bear Walk, Gratitude Dinner, Signature events, etc.) and they need your help. Meetings are scheduled for the 2nd Monday every month at 5:30 pm in M-6. Come join the PTC.
