***We are resending this in case it might have been looked over during the long holiday weekend.  We also wanted to remind you that if your child would like to run for Cluster Representative for Student Council, they should turn in their application by tomorrow.*****


Back to School Night 
We really enjoyed meeting you all at Back to School Night on Tuesday.  We are so excited about this year and it was a pleasure being able to share our excitement with you.  With so much to share, we realized there were a few more things we wanted to mention so make sure you continue reading for just a few more helpful bits of information about Indigo Cluster. 


Conferences
We will be sending out our Sign-Up Genius link in just a couple of  weeks.  Sign-Up Genius is how you will be able to sign up for your parent/teacher/student conference.

Parent Sign-Up(Please fill this out if you have not had a chance to do so yet.)
Here is the  link to our Parent Volunteer Survey.  Please make sure you check this link so that you will be able to Sign-Up for areas that you may be interested in volunteering for.

Donors Choose (We are almost funded!)
Our first Donor’s Choose Project has posted.  We would love it if you could support us as we try to get materials for the classroom.  We love donations big and small!  Feel free to pass this information on to anyone you think would be interested donating to our class.  Click on the link below to see our project and make a donation.

Memory Stick/Jump Drives
We would love to be able to have the videos and projects they create as a special memory keepsake at the end of the year.  We are asking that all students send in a memory stick/jump drive so that we will be able to make a copy for them. Second year Indigo Students can return the same one from last year if it has enough memory on it or use a new one for this year.
 

QR Codes
At Back to School Night, we hope you had the opportunity to check out your child’s video message using the QR Scanner app.  If you were not able to see it you are welcome to come in the class and check it out.  Also, if you would like to continue viewing the video message you can take a picture of the QR Code and then use the scanner from another device to scan the QR Code picture you took.  This video as well as future projects, be included in your child’s electronic portfolio which you will receive a copy of at the end of the year on your child’s memory stick.

 
Homework
 *Please make sure your child brings their Homework Folder to school everyday.  We are trying to get them in the habit of putting it in their mailbox every morning as it will help them get them into the habit of checking their mailbox at the end of the day for important things that are sent home throughout the week.
Reminders *If you have not turned in your child’s Comfort Kit, please turn it in as soon as possible.
