Mr. Posick's Friday email

November 18, 2016 (Background in honor of Super Moon!)

Thanksgiving vacation coming soon!

With Thanksgiving vacation on the horizon (We only have Monday and Tuesday classes next week), many students will be missing school. Please let Mrs. Emmerich know by either calling her (538-1130) or sending an email (emmerichb@merton.k12.wi.us) in advance of your vacation. As per School Board policy, homework is not given in advance. Students can find work that they've missed either in Google Classroom or Skyward or they can get their work upon their return to school. Thanks for your cooperation.
