Although it is the week before spring break, we will do our best to maintain order and stay on-task. There is a lot going on, but when my scholars are with me, we will work on some great concepts. Each of the classes will be shopping this week :)
Another piece of exciting news, our Little Free Library has been published in the "City Sun Times" newspaper. You can pick up a copy at local businesses. You can also read the article here. The hard copy includes pictures of the kids that built the Little Free Library and of the actual Library. You can also check out the Copper Canyon Little Free Library website
The United Parent Council has some great parent information opportunities. Click here to view the flyer.
Have a great week!
