Yesterday Kindergarten had a visit from Emily Lee, a class parent who works with Disney VoluntEARS. She read a story with the class and gave each child two books. I hope that everyone has fun reading together! 

Writing is focusing on Brave Spelling and trying to put more details on pages. We noticed that triangles have three sides and three corners, but no curves yesterday.

 2nd Grade Hosted Food Drive: The Second Grade students of Clark Elementary are hosting a school-wide Food Drive to help out our community! We will be collecting items from Wednesday, November 6th– Wednesday, November 13th! All items will be donated to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank. While all items are greatly appreciated, some of the items they are currently in need of are: non-perishable foods, breakfast cereal, oatmeal, and condiments. The classroom who collects the most items will win a bonus recess with Mr. Merritt! 

Have a wonderful Thursday,Kari Ramadorai
