NO WORDS THIS WEEK....HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Friday and Monday Take Home Folders

Please check your Keicher Konnections newletter AND your child's red take home folder (also called their Friday Folder) for upcoming dates. Please keep the calendar in your child's red folder, as this is a reminder that we update weekly.


**RED folders are only sent home with the child on MONDAY and FRIDAY. Other than that, UNLESS important notes MUST go home on a different day, you will not see their folder other than those two days.


Please make sure Friday folders are brought back ON MONDAY. Homework will go home in them on Monday, so we do need them. They have until FRIDAY to finish their homework. We also need them ALL back here ON FRIDAY! Please help them remember, as Friday is also the day where all work and notes home will go home in these folders, so we need them back here by Friday.
