Room 105 News

November 6, 2013

Dear Families:

It has been wonderful sharing all the good news about your students with you at conferences. First grade rocks! Thank you for your continued support!

There is no homework packet this week. Students will still be required to do their daily 15 minutes of "Just Right" reading, and complete their reading logs.

If your child would like to do some extra work over the long weekend:

You can print out pages and turn them into me if you'd like!

I will not be at school tomorrow. Ms. Herzog will once again be the guest teacher. The students know, and the day should flow as usual.

No school on Friday, 11/8.

Have restful weekend.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at:

Thank you,
Susanne Reed
