ALTA PTA Membership drive

Membership drive ends next week.  Please consider joining.  If you need another PTA envelope let me know.  Membership costs $8 per person.  Membership supports our hard-working PTA who sponsor so many fun activities for students and families, including fundraising for fieldtrips!

Class Book Order

A Scholastic book order (1st flyer) went home last week, but the information for ordering online wasn’t attached (I had a sub and she misunderstood.). I sent that ¼ sheet size info last Friday without realizing she hadn’t sent home both flyers.  Long story short, things went home not as organized as I would like.

Book orders are a great and inexpensive way to grow your child’s personal library… in addition your orders add up to great teacher rewards like free books and bonus points.  Every order helps get more books in my class library.  Please email me if you have questions or go to   to look online and place an order.

Bonus: This month, you can pick a FREE Book (up to $5) when you place an online order of $25 or more!


Please sign up with our class Instagram page.  I took lots of pics today and a fun video of FLASHLIGHT FRIDAY!  When you request to follow, please message me if your Instagram account doesn’t have your name.  I have a few “waiting” because they don’t look like parents.  The only people who will be able to see our posts are parents of students this year, my 4th grade team and admin.  If a picture or video is really worthy I will put the hashtag “#AltaRocks”. Make sure you signed the permission for me to post your child’s picture, or else I will have to blur their face and not post the photo altogether.


Our class went to library on Wednesday.  Starting this year, 4th and 5th grade classes will only visit the library together every other week.  Students are able to go during their lunch time or after school on Monday and Friday.  Please make sure students take care of their books and return them on time.


Students can practice their recorders at home if they like, but they need to make sure they have it at school every THURSDAY to practice with Mr. Tikasingh!  We had a few students forget to bring theirs yesterday.


If you haven’t signed up for Remind please text @mrsberglu to 81010.

Also, if you haven’t filled out ALL 4 Parent Survey Forms on the Parent Information page of my website, please try to fill it out soon.   I sent home reminders to parents with material I still need signed or filled out.  Check with your student if they have a reminder!  I wasn’t able to get about 4 kiddos their stuff before school let out.

Thanks so much!
