News & Notes:
Materials Pick Up:
- We will be having our next materials pick up on Monday, November 23 from 9:30-12:30. At this time, please bring back book club books that we are finished reading (your child will know which title that is - but feel free to email me if you are not sure).
- Pickup on the west side at Door 16. Enter by driving directly down Cortland into the Bennie driveway.
- We plan to be out there to help from 9:30-11:30, so there will not be an 11:00 zoom on Monday.
Materials to Bring Back:
- If your child's book club has recently finished a book, please bring those books back to Bennie. We are swapping them out for new book club books.
- Thank you to those families who were able to complete the Home Energy Kit - there is still time for our class to earn a grant by completing the online worksheet.
- I have rescheduled the assignment to complete the DTE Home Energy Worksheet online. I think there was some confusion on our end. Here is the link to the assignment in your child's Google Classroom which includes how to complete the form online. Please help your child complete the brief Home Energy Worksheet by November 20th - even if you didn't install items from the kit! DTE provides generous support to classrooms through free programs and grants. Please let me know if you have any questions.
APPS Social Work team resources:
- Our wonderful social work team has put together some resources to support students.
- We will be holding Student-Led conferences on December 2nd and 3rd. These will be on Zoom. Click here to sign up.

Toy Take Apart Lab
- We are in need of stuffed electronic toys (they do not have to be working!) for a science activity in December. There is a box in front of Bennie for donations - or you can bring them to our materials pick up. Feel free to share the "flyer" on your social media accounts. Thanks for any help you can offer!
- We will have Media Lit with Ms. Byrne as our specials class for the next two weeks. Her Zoom log in is in our "Zoom, Specials Classes and How To Videos" topic on Google Classroom
