Scip Orders

The follow is a message that teachers were asked to share with parents:

Hello parents!

I wanted to send a friendly reminder that our first round of Scrip orders will need to be turned in by this Tuesday, 11/14 at NOON. . . these gift cards will be delivered BEFORE Thanksgiving break!!!  (We will have one more order before Christmas).  You can either fill in the form that was sent home, make a list of items you want OR even go to and place an online order there.  You would need to create a username, password and then enter our group ID which is IndianLake.  It does remove 3% fee from ILE's profits if you order using a credit card, but it also gives you an alternate option to place your order and then send the check in to ILE PTO (paying by check or cash costs us nothing).  If you choose this option, please send check in to school on Tuesday morning. 

This is such a simple way to support your school . . . and get the gift cards that you plan to buy anyway!  Contact me with any questions.  I will contact you when the cards are ready for pickup.

Explorer Extra Credit Project

Just in case the informational sheet that was sent home on Monday did not make it here is an additional copy! If your child forgot which explorer they got just let me know, because I have a master list. 

Explorer Report & Poster Extra Credit Opportunity

Due Date: November 7, 2017 

Assignment: You are to do a ONE page report on _______________________________. 

In your report, include details like:
Where are they originally from?
What did they explore and discover on their exploration?
Were they sent by someone else to discover something?
What was their journey like? If it was difficult, what made it difficult?
Did they have any help?
What was the end result of their discovery?
These are just a FEW things you can include in your report.   You will be presenting this report to your classroom.  Tell us things that are interesting, because it is! J  Please write this as neatly as possible or you may type it.  DO NOT COPY STRAIGHT FROM A SOURCE (BOOK, INTERNET, ETC.)  Please use your own words.

On your poster, include:
Your written report attached to the back of your poster.
The name of your explorer displayed clearly at the top of your poster.
A picture of your explorer.
A map with the route of your explorer clearly displayed.
These will be displayed in the hall- so make them look good!

EXTRA EXTRA CREDIT:  If you dress up like your explorer while you give your presentation, you will receive extra credit points on your Social Studies grade. Be creative- look around your house and your parents’ closets (with their permission) for things to use as a costume.

Please rehearse reciting your report, pronouncing names, etc.  BEFORE the presentation date, because you will lose points if you are not prepared!
