Fall Break Homework

Hi Parents of Room 415!

I wanted to make sure that all parents were aware of their child’s Fall Break Homework. I really encourage students to be taking a break and getting outside to play, however I also want kids to make sure that they retaining the information taught in quarter one. In order to do so, your child will have a small amount of homework each day. Homework will be Monday-Friday both weeks of break and consist of reading and math.  We have discussed solutions as a class if students are on vacation or busy for some of the days. The breakdown is as follows:


-Read 40 minutes

-Google Classroom Reading Response

-One Ten Marks Assignment (10 questions) per day for a total of 5 Ten Marks assignments. A new Ten Marks assignment will appear each day of the first week. They will have until 10/7 to complete their assigned Ten Marks. Please make sure your child is using their notes for these assignments.

The students are aware of their homework over the break as well.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Butter Braid

Today your child brought home a Butter Braid Fundraising form. This fundraiser it used for students to individually raise money towards their camp expense. Camp costs $305, so this fundraiser is a great way for students to help raise some money to offset the cost. Here’s how it works:

-Students have until Friday, October 12 to sell Butter Braids

-They need to fill out the order form as they are selling

-Each Butter Braid costs $14 (expect the herb butter braid which is $15)

-Students will get $6 of each Butter Braid sold towards their camp discount

-Each time they make a sale, they need to collect the money at the time of the sale (checks may be made out to Camarena Elementary) or you may collect cash

-On Oct. 12, all payments and orders are due to Miss Greenlee

-Orders will be delivered to Camarena at the end of the school day of Wednesday Nov. 14. (for larger orders, it is helpful if a parent comes to the MPR that afternoon to pick up the orders)

-Butter Braids must be returned to a freezer within 3 hours of delivery.

-Students will then be responsible for delivering Butter Braids to whoever ordered from them

Again, this is a great fundraiser to help students raise money for camp, however it is not required. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Fundraising Reps

Hi Parents of Room 415!

As many of you already know, the sixth graders take part in many sixth grade activities this year (Camp, Legoland, a day at the movies, 6th grade dance etc.). In order to have so many activities available we need to do a lot of fundraising throughout the year to help pay for these activities. This year we will need two parent representatives per classroom to help organize and execute these fundraisers. Some of the fundraisers include a 6th grade car wash and restaurant nights at neighborhood restaurants. Our hope is to get 2 parent reps per classroom for a total of 10 sixth grade representatives. If you would like to become a classroom fundraising representative please email me at

Thanks so much!! We truly appreciate your help! It’s a fun filled, busy year and we can use all the help we can get!

Homeroom App

Another tool we use in room 415 to keep parents involved and up to date is the Homeroom App. This app allows me to post pictures and notes for parents to view. I will use it throughout the year to show what is going on in our classroom as well as sixth grade camp. The only people that are able to view these pictures and posts are parents in room 415 that sign up for our class app. Please make sure to use the link below to sign up for Homeroom. Thanks!
