Don't forget to check and SIGN your child's planner EVERY night!

PTO has graciously donated planners to every student in 2nd - 5th grade. (THANK YOU PTO!) We will be using this as our main form of daily communication to parents. The planner can be a great conversation starter with your child when he/she comes home saying "I didn't do anything at school today!" We ask that you check and sign the planner every night as we will communicated the awesome things your child is doing as well as any minor problems your child might have struggled with that day. We continuously tell students that it is their responsibility to write in the planner and to take it home to be signed every night! They never know when the planner fairy will be around to check for signatures with a special treat!
