Camp Learn A Lot
January 18, 2016
Our Children's Museum field trip is this Thursday. Please let me know your child's lunch plans by answering this two question form by Tuesday. If I do not hear from you, I will assume your child will be buying a school sack lunch and school milk to take on the field trip.
I will be available two Saturdays in January to provide 25-minute parent-teacher conferences for those who are interested. To sign up for a conference, navigate to my sign up on Sign Up Genius and choose the day and time that works for you.
Please see below for important dates to add to your calendar.
