BOX TOPS

Clipping Box Tops helps earn cash for our school. Once you start looking, you'll see little pink coupons everywhere! Each Box Top coupon is worth 10¢ for our school.

Please Trim Box Tops neatly on the dotted line and place in a clear baggie with your child's teacher’s name and grade on it. Teachers will gather baggies from now until October 19th and turn them over to the PTO.

Grades will compete against each other for a fun reward!

Parent Conference Sign Up

Please see the email from your child's teacher to sign up for Parent/Teacher conferences on October 30th.

CLOTHES!!

As the weather changes please make sure to write your child's last name in their jackets

Guided Reading!! Books will start coming home!

Good afternoon! Your child will begin bringing home their guided reading book starting next week. Please make sure this book is returned daily. Some weeks the book your child is being sent home with may seem easy, just right, or challenging. Our focus will determine the book we choose. We would like you to know that your child may not be sent home with a new book every Monday. We might not be able to meet with every group and will need to introduce new books on other days of that week. Thank you so much for your continuous support with your child’s education!!
