Starting to feel like spring...

I am very excited about the weather report this weekend; I am ready for warm weather. We have another day to make up. That means we will be in school Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, March 23, 24, 25.

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day. The boxes were very cute and creative!

Reading Logs/Reading at Home & Something to Think About

I have a lot of students not turning in the Reading Log. Your child needs to be reading for 20 minutes each night in order improve his/her reading skills. If you child reads for 20 minutes each school night, that is 100 minutes a week, 500 minutes a month, 3,600 minutes a school year. That is a lot of minutes to improve!
