Important Reminders!

Here are a few reminders for next week:

  • Happy New Year... We had a great time setting some goals for the New Year- see above! The kids had very nice ideas for themselves, I was impressed!!

  • Friday Folders... You will find their December writing and a few other odds and ends from this week, plus the January calendar. Please make sure to completely empty Friday folders each week!!

  • Mrs. Williams' Absences NEXT week... I will be out half a day on Monday to attend a grade level meeting here at school and then from Wednesday-Friday to attend a professional learning conference about reading. Unfortunately this all fell in the same week. Please send any notes in folders instead of sending an e-mail. Also, PLEASE remind the kids to be on their BEST behavior for our substitute, Mrs. Lisa Stevens. Mrs. Stevens is a former FMES employee and parent and also a long time sub here, so she will do an excellent job!

  • NEW Library Day... we will be going to the library on THURSDAY now, so please remember to send RED folders AND library books on Thursday!

  • PIR... PIR will begin again next week, so please keep logging all of your reading at home and remember to send their folders on Thursdays. If they forget their folder, the kids have to wait until the next week to move up in levels.

  • Report Cards... these will come home on Friday, January 12th

  • Remember... No school on Monday, January 15th for MLK, Jr. Day!
