Library Days

Please remember that our library day each week is Tuesday. If your child does not have their books returned, they miss out on opportunities to check out more books. With the end of the school year fast approaching, I'd hate for kids to miss the few opportunities we have left to check out and explore new books.

Lunch and Recess Volunteers

The sign up for lunch and recess volunteers has been updated with post-spring break dates if you are interested in helping out. Remember, a background check must have been completed before you can volunteer!

Class Dojo

Thank you for the positive feedback that I have received from many of you regarding our use of Class Dojo! It has become very motivating for many students as we get to that "spring fever" time of year. We have also been using it to set goals for the week as shown in the picture above. If you have misplaced the letter I sent so you can check in on your child's progress and would like another copy, please let me know and I will get that to you as soon as possible!
