Spelling & Vocabulary Test on Friday!


In 5th grade this year we are lucky to have Tech students come work with our class on Wednesdays for a Reading lab. We will begin this week. This is an excellent opportunity for our students to have a smaller group instruction with more individual learning! If you have any questions please let me know!
