Mrs. Gillespie's News



Thank you for helping to make Student Led Conferences a success! Your child prepared for the conference and it was nice to see so many interested parents.

EOG Preparation:

We will be doing review in reading, math and science over the next two weeks. Your child will have review packets to bring home and use for homework. It is very important that your child bring the packet to school each day, in order to participate in discussions. Please help me ensure that the packet assignment is competed each night and placed back in your child's book-bag for the next day. I will also be assigning online review using Study Island, Study Jams, and/or Tenmarks. The assignments will be in your child's agenda. Please check the agenda and encourage your child to fully participate in EOG review.

We celebrated 100 SPOTS with a delicious ice cream treat! Thank you for sending in toppings.
