Kindness in Marker

This month's character trait is being positive/caring.

Here are your kiddos spreading positivity!

Parent-Teacher Conferences THIS WEEK!

Parent-Teacher conferences are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings this week. I encourage my students to attend conferences with you, if possible. Please email me if you can't remember your scheduled time. I look forward to seeing you all this week!

I Love To Read Month!

Please help support our initiative to get kids reading. Encourage your child to read EVERY night for at least 20 minutes and keep track on his/her bright pink calendar. Initial the calendar and help remind them to return it on the first day of the week. This year's theme is "Read like a Rock Star!" Everyone who participates will receive a rock star necklace and the class with the highest average minutes (per grade level) will receive a "party" in a box!
