PTO Meeting about 1:1 iPads next year

It was so great seeing so many parents at the PTO meeting last night! Thank you to those that spoke for your kind words about the work we are doing in our classroom! I am happy to answer any questions (or find an answer for you) if you weren't able to attend, or if you still have questions about next year.

The website that Mrs. Drumm & Dr. Loane referred to is listed below. It will give you LOTS of GREAT information and will answer many of your questions as well.

Art Room Supplies Needed

The artists in first and second grade are working hard on their student choice animal paper mache projects. The art room is running low on the following items. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • newspapers
  • masking tape rolls
  • any small plastic container (ex: butter bowl, sour cream, etc. )
