Recycling

This Thursday we will be creating a project out of recycled material. If you have a few various sized recyclable items, please send them with your child. They will be working in groups to create something useful out of the recycled items we create. The items can and should be different sizes and shapes and made out of many different material. Please don't send glass. Thanks for your help!

Reminders

Please send your at-home weekly reading log back with your child this week. A new log was sent home in Friday Folders.


Here is the Dreambox link again. The kids love being on dreambox and it is very fun, engaging, and educational.
