Mrs. Myerson's Classroom News - Week of October 13th

A Note from Mrs. Myerson

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend! :)

This week the students will be reviewing skills learned the past month. This will also be a heavy assessment week, so please discuss with your child the importance of being prepared and ready to do their best.

Our Field Trip is THIS Friday! If you are sending a lunch with your child, be sure that there are no glass bottles. We are leaving at 9:30 sharp and will return to school around 2pm.

Meet Mrs. Myerson!

I am a wife, and a "mommy" to my lab-pit, Chance. I love to read, dance, sing, be creative, organize, decorate, and spend time with my family and friends! I am an 8th year teacher in Vineland, and truly passionate about my job! Making learning fun for my students and sparking their curiosity is what I'm all about.
