A Snowy Week Update

I hope this email finds you well and your student having enjoyed the day playing in the snow and staying warm! Below you will find that I have listed currently assigned work that students have for completion and the expected due date, in addition to assignments that have been planned and will occur dependent on the weather.

Snow Season Reminder: As evidenced today, the month of January is often interrupted by snow days and delays, as such, it is important that your student check their email frequently for assignment updates and bring their science notebook home each night in order to complete assigned work.
