Weekly Updates for the week of April 11

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and restful Spring Break. It is hard to believe that after today we only have 34 school days left. Today as a class we reviewed expectations. We are going to continue using our class economy money for the rest of the year. Each week the students will be given $5. If they misbehave they will owe me a dollar. If I catch them being good I will give them a dollar. On Friday, I will match whatever amount they earned that week. At the end of the year we will do a class auction where they can bid on various prizes (I will be asking for donations later).


ISTEP + Testing starts next week. We will test on April 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, and 25th. Please make sure your child is getting a good nights sleep and is eating a nutritious breakfast.
