Superhero Day!!!


Spelling Lists

I just added a new page to the top of the blog labeled Spelling.  There you will find a link to a list of all the spelling words for the entire year :)

Fall Break Homework Sheet

Because we only have three school days next week due to Fall Break  we will be extending our unit of study to span two weeks.  Therefore, the yellow star sheet that came home today (10/11/18) had an attached half sheet and will cover two weeks worth of reading minutes.

Spelling words that came home today will be tested on Wednesday, Oct. 24.  Both star sheets need to be returned Thursday, Oct. 25.

I have provided links to the regular full page homework sheet and the half sheet for Fall Break if yours gets misplaced over the next two weeks.  Sorry, I am unable to post the fluency passage due to copyright.

Fall Parent Teacher Conference

Freedom Elementary will be holding our Fall Parent Teacher Conferences on October 15th-17th.

To schedule an appointment with your child’s teacher please log into your MyWeber parent portal account at and click the Parent-Teacher Conference link on the right side of the screen. You will be able to schedule your appointment(s) through Oct. 14th, but we recommend you do so early to secure a time that will work best for your schedule. You will receive an email appointment reminder the day prior to your scheduled appointment(s).

Your student should attend with you, but due to the limited time with their teacher, pre-school aged children should not be brought to conferences if at all possible.

As a reminder, Oct. 15th, 16th, and 17th will be Early Out Days for 1st-6th grades, with school ending at 1:05 pm.

We do have a contingency plan in case of inclement weather.  
If there is rain, and we have to move the Fun Run indoors, this will be the schedule:
(Please note the schedule changes, so you may plan accordingly.)

We will send out a school wide email, text and Facebook post FRIDAY MORNING, IF the need arises.
For now, we are planning for an outdoor Fun Run.
The track may be wet and soggy, it may be a little chilly.
So PLEASE dress your children accordingly, in appropriate attire.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We could not do this without all your support!
Let’s keep those pledges and donations coming.  Let’s help out Freedom!

Thought for October

Children Learn What They Live
Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph. D.

If children live with hostility,
they learn to fight.

If children live with ridicule,
they learn to be shy.

If children live with tolerance,
they learn to be patient.

If children live with encouragement,
they learn confidence.

If children live with praise,
they learn to appreciate.

If children live with fairness,
they learn justice.

If children live with security,
they learn faith.

If children live with approval,
they learn to like themselves.

If children live with acceptance, and friendship,
they learn to find love in the world.
